TOUR: RAFTING ON THE URUBAMBA RIVER

Urubamba river - Cusco tour

BACK TO PERU TOURS...
The Urubamba River, also called Urupampa, rises in the knot of Vilcanota, running across much of the territory of Cusco with the name of Vilcanota River. When it runs through the City of Urubamba it is called Urubamba River. The turbulence of the Urubamba Rivers when running across the Sacred Valley of the Incas is suited for the practice of riding downstream, which is one of the most interesting attractions of adventure tourism in Peru.
