About this trip

The Marañón River is one of the most unique river journeys on the planet. Isolated riverside villages, cascading waterfalls, natural swimming holes, ancient rock art, ruins, along with flora and fauna not found anywhere else on the planet.  Our tour through the Grand Canyon of South America will leave you wanting more.

This 8 day  rafting trip in Peru offers a one-of-a kind blend of scenic river journey, cultural experience and brilliant whitewater; all which can be squeezed into a single week of vacation. The Marañón offers unparalleled fly in- fly out access from starting and finish points and a long season which means you can go when its best for you. The best time to go is from June-November, however it's possible to raft this section year round.

We will take you to the heart of the Marañón.

Season

The main season for this raft tour is June to October, where weather is warm, sunny and water levels are perfect, trips are also offered in the shoulder season in May and November.

It is possible to travel between November-May, however water levels can be extremely high, and weather less predicatable (storms to be expected). For this reason, trips in highwater season are only open to participants who are strong swimmers and experienced in the outdoors and not afraid of a true adventure.

Itinerary

Day 1
Get to river and begin Rafting!

 After breakfast we travel over Peruvian highlands before descending deep

into the Marañon Canyon. When we reach the river we will load up the

gear, give safety briefings and begin training the crew for the rapids ahead.

The journey truly starts when we pass under the bridge and plunge into

the Balsas rapid (III), just a taste of what is to come. A short way

downstream we will complete a set of rescue drills, allowing each raft

crew to unite as a team and prepare for the journey ahead. As a

passenger, you will be travelling in a 16’ oar assisted raft, guided by a

highly trained and experienced river guide.

Reviews

This was a trip of a lifetime with breathtaking views, an incredibly dedicated and knowledgeable staff, and a wild ride on the Maranon. THIS is the way to see Peru - and to learn about its many natural wonders and why they're important to protect. Put this on your bucket list.
TIME OF MY LIFE!!! I couldn’t have asked for anything more, the food was insane every day, the rapids were perfect, campsites were unbelievable! My favourite part was visiting the villages, partying and playing football with the kids. The guides were always making sure we were safe, happy and having a good time. I can safely say it was a once in a lifetime that I definitely want to do again!!!
