Amazonas Explorer offers the safest and most professional rafting in Peru. Conde Nast Traveller calls us " The best adventure outfitter in Cusco."

Thirty years ago we began as a Cusco based white water kayaking and white water rafting company. We continue to offer you the best Peru rafting, in the best style. We use top quality whitewater safety equipment, run proper wild water safety course’s for our guides such as Rescue 3 or Swiftwater Rescue where we bring qualified White water instructors to Peru and carry out courses exclusively for our Cusco rafting guides.

We only use highly experienced Peru rafting guides - course’s only teach you to rescue people. Experience lets you run whitewater rapids without getting into trouble. This is demonstrated by our Cotahuasi expedition where we are about the only Peru rafting company which runs this river, this wild water rafting expedition which offers the most continuous technical whitewater of any commercially run river in the world. Not a white water rafting trip for the faint hearted but an awesome expedition if you’re up for it.

Our Tambopata rafting expedition allows us to combine fun white water with the perfect wild life watching platform, mixing up fun grade III-IV whitewate rapids and awesome wildlife such as Tapirs, Jaguars, capybaras, giant otters and hundreds of birds. 

Our Apurimac rafting trip is the classic grade IV-V 3 day white water section that many Peru rafting companies offer. We pride ourselves on doing it in a better and safer style than any other outfitter.

We also raft the Black Canyon of the Apurimac, offering a slightly milder grade III-IV White wáter rafting experience section for those looking for more of a relaxed wilderness experience.

So if you’re looking for a classic outdoor adventure holiday then we can offer you the best Peru rafting vacation, white water canoeing, white water rafting or Peru adventure holiday.
