Adventure Travel in Arequipa - River Rafting/Kayaking
The erosion of the Colca River has created this canyon of approximately 70 km. ( 43.5 miles ) in length, twice as deep as the Grand Canyon, making it the deepest in the world at 3000 meters ( 9,842 feet ). The valley offers very beautiful landscapes, and is frequently flown over by condors which are the largest birds in the world.
Between December and March, the Colca River is one of the best places in the world for rafting. It has high-speed rapids (gradient + V), and great isolation in certain tracks. The upper part (Andagua) and the middle are to be navigated in kayaks, only by experienced sportsmen.
The lower part of the Majes River can be navigated in rubber rafts. Its rapids are not long but the beauty of its landscape and clarity of its water will provide you with an unforgettable experience. This area can also be navigated from April to November.
