Rafting the Apurimac

Location: Cusco, Peru

For something different we decided to do a 3 day / 2 night rafting trek outside of Cusco and give our legs a break. Most of the rafting footage (including the time I got cleaned up by a rapid and ended up in the water, sucked under the raft, then spat out the other side) is on dvd, so excuse the lack of action shots.

Whilst the rapids were not quite class 4 and 5 (mostly 3īs and a few 4īs) the fact you rafted over 3 days was a test.

The 4 hour drive in is pretty spectacular...and rough - has taken a while but we finally have accepted most dirt roads in Bolivia or Peru are candidates for the worlds most dangerous road!

Day 2 am and this is what we wake too!

Campfires at night...and note bare feet - very relaxing and the guides did all the cooking!

More walking, but time to soak up the amazing scenery.

Some of the harder sections you need to walk around.

Even time for the safety kayaker to take a break and absorb the surrounds.

More amazing scenery - for most of the time we rafted through fantastic high canyons with smooth walls at our sides.

Day 3 am views.

At night we camped, so before days end we generally stopped off to pick up a bit of fire wood!

After all the rafting and at the end of day 3 we decided to jump off a few rocks....which felt as high as it looks!

Figure we walked around this bit?
