It will take us about two hours to prepare all the equipment using only state of the art self bailing rafts and catarafts.
We´ll have lunch and raft down to our first camp. All the meals are prepared by our staff on a campfire under the night sky of the Southern Hemisphere.
The Apurimac river is considered one of the best and most exciting rivers in Cusco Peru, in the world for White Water River rafting because of it´s ideal conditions in terms of temperatures, rapids, water sandy beaches for the campsites, etc. Previous experience is not needed, but you must know how to swim.
