Sacred Valley Rafting Tour

This Sacred Valley Rafting Tour, in the Urubamba River, is the perfect experience for all ages! The valley is located north of Cusco. It runs down from Pisac and continues through Cusipata, Urubamba, Ollantaytambo, and Machu Picchu, where it reaches the Amazon Jungle. 

There are two main sections along the Urubamba Valley where we service rafting tours. The higher section called Cusipata and the lower section of the river located near Ollantaytambo Town and Train Station. This river rafting tour takes place in the Ollantaytambo section.  

This section is very relaxing and easy going during the first part of the journey. This is a great section to get comfortable on the raft and ready for the other sections.

Along the way, there will be some class II rapids. Reaching the end of the journey, we’ll encounter rapids at class III named “the slider” and “the station”. 

After the last rapids and a few more minutes paddling down river we will arrive to our final destination. There we’ll get off the raft and have a chance to enjoy our snacks, change clothes, shower and get ready for the trip back to your Urubamba Hotel.

Our Rafting Team (shuttle driver, rafting guide and safety kayaker) will pick you up and head to the raft put in location. 

In this Sacred Valley Rafting Tour, your experienced rafting guide will choose the best route to take according to your experience level and capabilities. Fun for all the family is guaranteed!

"Once you start paddling and get comfortable in the raft, the journey is magestic! The views of the ruins below the snow capped mountains of the valley was epic! 100% recommended!
Nicole F.
“My kids loved the ride! It was fun seeing them paddle down the river. Willy, our guide, was amazing at the raft and very knowledgeable about the biodiversity and history throughout the way”
Nathalie Z.
