We pick you up from any hotel in Arequipa's city center 10 minutes before your scheduled tour time (8AM, 11AM and 2PM).
Departure by car for checking the equipment. You'll change into wetsuits and safety gear and we'll head to the river via Chilina Valley to the Virgen de Chapi-Charcani Sanctuary, where your tour begins.
Before entering the water the guide will give a brief lesson on river safety and rescue, as well as explain the role of the rafting guide and the safety kayaker.
The first section of rapids is Class II and useful for practicing rowing technique and river safety. Next, we will run an exciting Class III section. The next section is Class IV, the strongest rapids you'll encounter (if you are not feeling up for the challenge of Class IV rapids, you have the option to get out of the raft and walk a short distance to meet up with the rafts for the final Class III section -- almost everyone is up for the whitewater, but we're more than happy to accommodate those who aren't).
The final 15 minute stretch before we hop out of the river is Class III with sizeable rapids.
Upon leaving the river, you'll change out of your wetsuits and gear and make a quick stop at our storehouse for a snack. We'll drive you back to the Plaza de Armas.
