Urubamba River Rafting Full Day



The Urubamba river runs from the high Andean Ranges down through the Sacred Valley of the Incas, past Machu Picchu and into the jungle.

 The Urubamba is divided into Upper Urubamba and Lower Urubamba, the dividing feature being the Pongo de Mainique, a whitewater canyon that opens into the Amazon plain.

The Urubamba river 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 “Chuquicahuna- (CHUQUI)” section of the river on the Upper Urubamba. There are good class III rapids and the water is not contaminated, as unfortunately  in the Sacred Valley of the Incas sections of the river are.

 This section is perfect for one day tour, with nice class II, III and III+ rapids. Excellent scenic riverside view and with big eucalyptus trees and beautiful flowers.
