DAY 01: CUSCO / MAUKALLAKTA / LORETUYOC
After a balanced breakfast we will make a short walk to visit the forest of Loretuyoc where we will find trees of more than 200 years. We will also find part of the real road that comes from Cusco and goes towards the Apurimac River and then to the Pacific Ocean. We continue walking for the next two hours going through the remains of Kusichaca to the town of Huanca Huanca (2800 meters) where we will meet local people and we will have the opportunity to offer some help to the local school.
We will board our van and we will go for half an hour towards the end of the road where we will have a walk of descent of about an hour until the base of the Inca position of Huajachaca, used by the old Peruvians to exchange goods between the coast of the Pacific ocean and Cusco like capital of the empire . Lunch en route
At this point we will meet the rest of the group, our canoeing guides and all the necessary equipment to continue our expedition along the river. Our guides will give us a brief safety talk before facing the fast class 2 and 3 of this fantastic river. We will paddle about two to three hours, find a tributary named Santo Tomas and continue through an impressive limestone canyon until we reach our camp. (Breakfast / Lunch / Dinner)
DAY 03: THE BLACK CANYON OF THE APURÍMAC RIVER
After breakfast we will run the most intense series with fast class II to IV, like "the other right" and "3 condors" among others. We will take lunch and finish our adventure followed by 4 hours back to Cusco by private car. Farewell dinner in one of the most emblematic restaurants of the city. (Breakfast / Lunch)
