Cotahuasi River

The Rio Cotahuasi, The World's Deepest Canyon, Peru

Our most exciting expedition to date, this is an adventure for experienced rafters looking for the ultimate white-water challenge. The Rio Cotahuasi is a relatively new white-water discovery; its first descent was not until 1994 and is surely one of the last remaining secrets in the rafting world. A remote river consisting of world-class rapids, spectacular campsites and unexplored archaeological ruins all set in a breathtakingly beautiful canyon, declared the "World's Deepest Canyon ". This is not a trip for the faint-hearted. It begins high up on the Altiplano for a 2day trek into the river that plunges off Sipia Falls into an impressive gorge. We challenge 120km of class IV and V rapids for 6 days interspersed with exploration of adjacent desert canyons and Pre-Inca ruins. Join us for this trip of a lifetime and be amongst the first ever to visit this incredible discovery.
