Amazonas Explorer began as a Cusco based white water kayaking and rafting adventure company and this is where the heart of the company belongs, again we try and do things differently. We use top quality whitewater equipment, run proper wild water safety course’s for our guides such as Rescue 3 or Swiftwater Rescue where we bring these 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 white water 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 river for the faint hearted but an awesome expedition if you’re up for it.

The Tambopata 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.

The Apurimac river, source of the Amazon, has the classic grade IV-V 3 day white water section that many companies offer but we also include the longer and less mad black Canyon section for those who wish a wilderness and slightly milder grade III-IV White wáter 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.
