Descending the white waters of the Apurimac River Canyon is not an exclusive experience for grown-ups; the little ones can also enjoy this adventure paddling the calm and fun rapids of a special section for families.
For four days, connect with Mother Nature in her purest expression, camp on remote beaches, walk barefoot on the sand, and, above all, live the experience of doing a real canoeing expedition in one of the most remote places in Peru.
Rocoto Bridge, on the banks of the Apurimac River, is the starting point of this trip.
Meet our guides, learn a little more about the canoeing equipment used for this type of expedition, help us inflate the rafts, and venture out to four days of pure fun.
Paddle calm class I and II rapids until you reach your first campsite. Camp under a million stars and learn more about the constellations of the Southern Hemisphere.
Today is an action-packed day. Paddle fun class II and III rapids and feel the power and energy of moving white waters as you travel through areas of great natural beauty.
At midday, we will stop at a beach to have lunch and recharge our batteries for paddling to our second camp. Help us collect firewood, warm yourself by the fire, and share stories and laughter with your team of guides.
A river trip makes you work as a team. You have to follow the guide’s commands in a coordinated manner on the water, which makes for a fun and enjoyable family time.
With everyone in position, embark on another action-packed day, paddling class II and III rapids, traversing incredible scenery, enjoying the fresh air, and observing the flora and fauna of this place.
Today it’s time to paddle the final section of our Apurimac River journey, a morning of calm class I, II, and III rapids until we reach the Huallpachaca Bridge, the last point of the expedition.
Say goodbye to this river and take with you forever the memories of four days of pure nature, adrenaline, and fun.
