Urubamba River Rafting Adventure

After being collected from your your hotel in the morning, you will embark on a 1.5-hour drive towards the shores of the upper Urubamba-River. Here, your professional rafting guides will give a safety talk, and provide you with all the proper equipment for rafting.

You will then begin your rafting adventure, which will involve you floating down the river for approximately 2.5 hours. In this time you will run class II and III rapids, with the rainy seasons also providing rapids that can even reach class IV and IV+.

Finally, you will arrive at the Cusipata River Camp shoreline, where a hot sauna and hot showers will be waiting for you. Here you will also be able to enjoy a full lunch, whilst recovering from your rafting experience. If you are interested in even more adventure in your day however, you can also zip-line across the river. You will return to Cusco at around 5 in the afternoon, and later in the evening, you can view the exciting pictures from your trip at the tour office.

How fit should I be to go rafting? Is it strenuous?
On some of our more challenging rivers where unintentional swimming, long hiking or high elevations are a possibility, a higher level of fitness is advised. Always discuss with our staff if you're unsure what's acceptable for you. If you're still in doubt about your ability to go rafting, or your fitness, check with your doctor before you go. While many trips require little physical fitness, being in good shape will enhance your vacation.
I am a senior citizen. Can I go rafting?
Yes! Inca Jungle has taken people in their nineties on our trips. It's important that you're fit and active and choose an appropriate trip. Many grandparents bring their grandchildren on our Family Magic trips. Special "Elder Rafting" and "Canoeing" trips, exclusively for seniors, are offered as well.
I can't swim. Can I still go rafting?
Yes! Everyone on a Inca Jungle trip wears a Coast Guard-approved PFD (personal flotation device). These are designed to keep you afloat in the event that you find yourself in the river. Many non-swimmers go on rafting trips and they have a great time. It is more important that you are not afraid of the water. Non-swimmers should not go on class IV+ or class V trips. Please call us if you have any concerns about this.
What are my chances of falling out of the boat?
What should I do if I do? Before you go on any trip you'll be given extensive instructions on what to do if you fall in and how to float in the river. Believe it or not, many people love falling out of the boat. It's exciting. But it can be disorienting and a little overwhelming at first. Many people have taken multiple trips and never fallen in. Some people fall out on their first trip. Follow your guide's instructions and your "swim" could be the most exciting part of your trip!
What should I wear on the river?
See our Packing Lists for each trip we run. Most people already own the items needed. Inca Jungle Company provides wetsuits and wetsuit booties on all whitewater trips in Dec and March.
Can I bring my camera or video camera?
Yes. On one-day trips we recommend a single-use waterproof camera that you can keep handy with you in the raft. On multi-day trips we provide waterproof camera boxes that fit most cameras and small video cameras.
