Apurímac is a Quechua word that means “The talking God”. The Apurímac river is the most important and farthest affluent of the Amazon river. This canyon, considered among the country’s deepest, is 2,000 m / 6,561 ft deep, and this rafting trip ranks among the 10 best in the world. Apurímac is an important granite canyon with shining vertical walls, incredible geological formations caused by water erosion and beautiful sandy beaches, were we will enjoy our lunch and camp. We will have the pleasure of observing condors, deer, river otters, foxes and a variety of birds.
A trek through high Andean mountain paths, a look at various communities, impressive views of snow peaked mountains, beautiful lagoons and wonderful waterfalls. We will cross queuña forests, (the endemic tree of Peru) and appreciate the great variety of flora and fauna. With a stroke of luck we may even be able to see birds and mammals only to be found at this altitude.
