The Apurimac River “ talking god” is considered as 1 of the top 3 rivers in the world for rafting. What counts are the good conditions of the river to realize this sport: a good climate, strong but safe rapids (depending on the time of the year) and thermal baths at the end.
We depart from Curahuasi at 8 am and drive for half an hour through the astonishing countryside until we arrive at our starting point the bridge of Kunyak. Here we prepare ourselves for our adventure!
Our guides hand out the equipment and a safety talk will be given. The boats will be accompanied by a kayaker to guarantee the best security. It is possible to take some inner tubes with us in case you want to try out tubing (see before). We paddle for about 2 hours through rapids level II – III until we arrive at Cconoc where the thermal baths and lunch awaits us! After relaxing, we return to Curahuasi.
It is possible to combine whitewater rafting with puenting and tubing into an exhilarating day of river adventure!
In Cusco exist one day rafting trips to the river of Urubamba, the downside of that trip is that the climate is cold and the drive to the rafting is long.
