If you’re short on time but long to experience the many aspects of this alluring country, then this is your trip. Combining white water rafting on the challenging Apurimac river, with a hike into the cloud forest in the foothills of the Andes to marvel at the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu and time to absorb the delights of the city of Cusco. An option to add yet more elements to your trip by choosing to spend one of your days mountain biking in the foothills, or simply taking more time to immerse yourself in Peruvian history and culture in Cusco. Alternative options in Peru for your adventure are in the world’s deepest canyon, The Rio Cotahuasi or the wildlife and wilderness adventure on the Rio Tambopata.
On arrival at the airport, you will be met and escorted to your hotel. We’ll explore the city to get your bearings and adjust to the altitude.

This morning, a spectacular journey to the river. Full safety talk in white water rafting, we cast off into the waters of the mighty Apurimac. The grade II and III rapids this afternoon are excellent training for the days ahead.

The Apurimac was a sacred river to the Incas and thought to be a great source of wisdom. Five hundred years later it is still a river to be treated with the utmost respect.Today we challenge some amazing grade IV and V before arriving at camp.

Your last day on the water. Rapids such as Babalua and Last Laugh that would once have seemed daunting are now just pure adrenaline pulsing fun. Finally you reach a break in the canyon walls and from here we drive back to Cusco for the night.

Enjoy a free day in Cusco for some rest and recuperation. Whether your interest is exploring Inca ruins, mountain biking, visiting Colonial churches, bargain hunting in artisan markets, chocolate museums or just relaxing over a cappuccino on a terrace overlooking the Plaza de Armas, Cusco has it all.
