Urubamba River Rafting

The Urubamba River starts high up on the Andes near Cusco; it has some interested white water depending on the section being done and the time of the year. One of our most popular routes during the season is the Cusipata section at the Upper Urubamba, where we have a private campground called CASA CUSI. Here we have comfortable camping facilities such as thatched roof for tents, toilets, hot showers, a Sauna and Hot Tub. The white water is exciting, safe and with magnificent views of the mountains. You will also have the opportunity to spot the beautiful torrent duck a species almost extinct.


We pick you up at your hotel , after one and a half hours drive we arrive to the put -in at the shores of the Upper Urubamba River, at " CUSIPATA RIVER CAMP" , our private campground. Our professional Rafting Guides will give you a safety talk and provide you with all the proper equipment for Rafting. We would be floating for approximately two and a half hours, running class II and III rapids. During the rainy season Dec. to early March , the rapids can be class IV and IV plus.
Afterwards , we arrive to the take-out at "CUSIPATA RIVER CAMP", where a hot Sauna and hot showers will be waiting , also a full course lunch will be provided. As an option can do ZIP-LINE over 4 cables across the river. Our return to Cusco should be around 5 in the afternoon.
