The Urubamba River runs from the high Andean ranges down through the Sacred Valley of the Incas, past Machupicchu and into the jungle.
The Urubamba is divided into Upper Urubamba and Lower Urubamba, the dividing feature being the Pongo de Mainique, a whitewater canyon that opens into the Amazon plain.
It has some exciting white water depending on the section of the river being done and the time of the year. One of our most popular RAFTING sections during the season is the "Chuquicahuna" section of the river on the Upper URUBAMBA. There are good class III rapids and the water is not contaminated, as unfortunately the Sacred Valley of the Incas sections of the river is.
This section is perfect for one day tours, with nice class II, III and III+ rapids. Excellent scenic riverside view with big eucalyptus trees, beautiful flowers.
This white water rafting section is all year long and from early December to late March the river is Class IV.
