Why rafting in Peru is a Must-Do Adventure!

Peru is a country that offers a lot of outdoor activities like trekking, biking, zip-linig, ATV Tours, rock climbing and so on.

But what about a day of rafting on the Peruvian rivers? River rafting in Cusco is exciting, adventurous and a must-do activity in Peru! The Peruvian rivers are perfect for rafting and there are several options for one day, 2 day or longer rafting trips!

The one day tour takes place nearby Cusco, mostly at the Urubamba river, in the Sacred Valley of the Incas.



Here, about two hours from Cusco, we were dropped off at a lodge, located on the Riverside in the heart of the Sacred Valley of the Incas. The atmosphere was really nice. Dos Manos Peru arranged for us to be picked up at the Plaza de Armas in Cusco and from here we were driven to the lodge.

The guides were really nice and offered a safety briefing first, where they explained what was going to happen. We got a wetsuit, safety equipment and an explanation about the boat and the safety rules,  in both English and Spanish. After the explanation, we got into the boats and practiced the safety rules again, but now in the water. The guide was funny and nice but still serious about the safety!

River rafting can be a little bit rough sometimes, especially when the water stream gets going faster… , but it was SO MUCH FUN and so exciting! Of course, we got wet from the splashing water and the other rafts that pass by and splash water with their paddles at you, but after rafting, you can get a nice hot shower!

After everyone had freshened up, we got a nice 3-course lunch: soup, chicken (something vegetarian for the vegetarians) and a nice banana dessert. When we were finished with lunch, we got a nice surprise: Ziplining! At the lodge, there was also the possibility to do ziplining over the river. It was exhilarating and awesome!

So when you visit Peru, don’t hesitate to do some outdoor activities, especially river rafting in Cusco!
