2 Days Rafting Urubamba River

Book now

The Urubamba River, is a river in Peru. A partially navigable headwater of the Amazon River, it rises in the Andes to the south-east of Cusco near the Puno Region border, where it is called the Vilcanota River. In the Sacred Valley, between Písac and Ollantaytambo, it is also called the Wilcamayu (sacred river). It flows north-north-west for 724 kilometers before coalescing with the lower Apurímac River to form the Ucayali River.
It has some exciting white water depending on the section of the river being done and the time of the year. One of our most popular rafting sections during the season is the "Chuquicahuana" (CHUQUI) ,section of the river on the Upper Urubamba. There are good class II rapids and the water is not contaminated, as unfortunately the Sacred Valley of the Incas sections of the river are.
This section is perfect for one day tours, with nice class II, III and III+ rapids. Excellent scenic riverside big eucalyptus trees, beautiful flowers, profusion of cactus and Inca ruins adorn this whitewater trip.

This white water rafting season is all year long and from early December to late March the river is Class IV. The rest of the year are rapids Class IIi, on Cusipata (CUSI) section of the river, it has Class II rapids.
