The Urubamba river runs from the high Andean ranges down through the Sacred Valley of the Incas, past Machu Picchu and into the jungle. The Urubamba is divided into Upper Urubamba and Lower Urubamba, the dividing feature being the Pongo de Mainique, a white water canyon that opens into the Amazon plain.

It has some exciting white water depending on the section of the river and the time of the year. One of our most popular rafting sections during the season is the “Chuquicahuna- (CHUQUI)” section of the river on the Upper Urubamba. There are good class II rapids and the water is not contaminated, as unfortunately the Sacred Valley of the Incas sections of the river are.

This section is perfect for one day tours, with nice class II, III and III+ rapids along with excellent scenic riverside views with big eucalyptus trees, beautiful flowers. This white water rafting section is open all year long and from early December to late March the river is Class IV.
