Rio Majes Full-Day Rafting 

  • We will pick you up from your hotel between 4:30 and 5:00AM and drive approximately 3 hours to the beautiful Majes Valley until reaching the cross section of Rio Andamayo and Rio Colca. 

  • Here we will eat a buffet breakfast of bread, cheese, avocado, tomato, jam, butter, tea and coffee. Before entering the water, our guides will give you a lesson on river safety and rescue, as well as explain the role of the rafting guides and the safety kayaker. 

  • You'll spend an exhilarating 3 hours on the water. The first section of rapids is Class IV with high water and exciting drops. The remaining rapids are Class II-III. We'll make a brief stop where swimming is an option. At the the take-out, transportation will be waiting to bring everyone to a local restaurant for a delicious fresh-water shrimp lunch harvested from the river!

  • Next, we will visit the Toro Muerto petroglyphs, an archeological zoo. All the petroglyphs are carved into large volcanic boulders concentrated in a 5 square kilometer area of desert. This dense collection of large volcanic rocks is most likely a result of violent eruptions of the Coropuna and Chachani volcanoes. More than a thousand rocks of all sizes and shapes have been crudely, yet strikingly, engraved with a wide variety of distinct representations. The engravings include images of humans, dancers, snakes, llamas, deer, parrots, sun discs and simple geometric motifs. The petroglyphs are believed to be 1000 to 1500 years old and are largely attributed to the Hauri culture.

  • After an hour long visit to the Toro Muerto petroglyphs, we will begin the drive back to Arequipa. You will be dropped off at your hotel between 6:30 and 7:00PM.
