Pre-trek briefing: The night before your Rafting Chuquicahuana
For our Rafting Chuquicahuana 1 Day, we’ll provide you a thorough briefing at your accommodation in Cusco at 5:00 pm, the night before your trek, and you can take this opportunity to ask final questions and make any final preparations.
Meeting point at 08:30 am in our office: Plaza de Armas or we can also collect from your hotel. 2 hours private transport into a beautiful and very scenic views of lakes, villages and towns in the way to Urcos and Cusipata. Once we get there, you have time to change in a river rafting clothes, you will find a wetsuit that will fit you. Afterwards, you have to pick up a helmet, a life-jacket and a paddle, once you are ready, your guides will offer a field briefing of each details after definitely a great picture time !!!.
Time to pull the raft to the river and to learn the commands. Once on the raft and far from the shore, the real fun starts. The river is smooth in the beginning, giving you the chance to practice the commands when the guide tells you, but don't worry, the bumps will come soon. You realize soon that the river is getting rougher, it's time to paddle. Suddenly the rapids show up, and you will see yourself paddling. You will get soak, even if you don't fall, water splash from everywhere, and it's cold, you will be glad that you are wearing the wetsuit and a wind cutter.
It is very important to follow the guide´s instructions and paddle seriously after the commands, this will keep in a good balance of the boat. After various rapids the river calm down for a while, giving you the chance to rest for a little while until the next rapid come. The rapids are basically rocks and holes on the riverbed. Rapids are classified from I to VI, been VI the roughest. In the Urubamba river, the rapids are class II up to III+ and IV when the river is high after the rainy season (December to March).
After two hours and an half your ride is about to end, I suggest, if it's a sunny day, to jump into the water and flow with the river. Don't worry, the guide will get you to the shore or back on the raft. It is always another guide on a kayak who goes next to the raft to pick up the people who fall, and also he will take pictures, this is great because back in Cusco you can buy a CD with all the pictures taken.
Once back on the shore, the same bus will be waiting for you. After dry yourself and change your wetsuit for warm clothing, you will have a delicious lunch. Then a good nap on the ride back to Cusco.

We recommend that you bring:
Bathing suits
A change of clothes for afterwards
Sun Screen, hat
Water to drink
Waterproof footwear, runners or tennis are recommended
