For the most experienced white water rafters Peru offers one of the most demanding yet exiting descents in the world. The Cotahuasi Canyon, near Arequipa in south-eastern Peru is considered the world’s deepest canyon at 3,535 meters (11.600 feet), and is the center piece of a 2 week tour.
Usually originating in Arequipa, the tour starts with a 5 / 6 hours drive to the village of Huambo near to the Colca Canyon, where you will camp for the evening before hiking 7 hours to the start of the river descent at the native settlement of Canco. From here starts 6 days of rafting, culminating in class IV and V rapids.
These tours are indented only for experienced rafters, and operate either once a year or by demand. Tours are expensive and start around $2,500 per person, including all equipment, transport, guides and meals.
