We took a 2-hour tour with barely speaking English guides that was quite lovely and a nice change of pace. There were 4 boats loaded in all. During May the river was quite calm, so it was more of a rafting versus white water trip,...More

River Rafting the Urubamba River was a very nice outing with lovely scenery. This is a wonderful experience for first time rafters as the water is very calm. If your an experienced white water rafter, this may be too clam a ride for you.

Took a private rafting trip on the Urubamba River outside Ollantaytambo and had a great time. We encountered rapids up to Class III. Got VERY wet and the river was COLD. I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a little adventure.

Is August a period of low water levels on this river? I'd prefer an adrenaline fix and don't just want to float down the river on a day trip Thanks for your input everyone!
