One of our most popular rafting sections during the season is the Cusipata section, in the upper part of the river. It is a scenic tour and half to arrive there and it is worth every minute. Cusipata section is one of the nicest rivers of the Urubamba for rafting activities, as it is less crowded, tranquil and cleaner than the Ollantaytambo part of the Sacred Valley. It consists of rapids that are graded II, III, and IV plus. Overall, you will be running the water for about 2 and a half hours, with some parts for relaxing and soaking up the experience, and other parts for pumping up your adrenaline levels.
On this pleasant 1-day excursion, you will enjoy a beautiful and exciting time, rafting on Vilcanota´s River. Around 9:00 a.m. your guide will pick you up from your hotel, and will transfer you to the rafting drop-off area. After a short briefing and rafting instructions from the guide and getting ready with the safety equipment: a helmet, life vest and wet suit, you will depart for a 2 hours rafting adventure on soft and easy to handle class 2 and 3 rapids, along a scenic section of the Urubamba River.
After your rafting experience, you will have the option to relax in a sauna to loosen up your muscles a bit. In addition, a delicious lunch is included in this trip. So, after having worked up your appetite during the rafting adventure, you will be ready for a well-earned meal of traditional Peruvian cuisine. Finally, we will transfer you back to Cusco, where you can have some rest and recharge your batteries for some more WEA TRAVEL, either with us or on your own.
