Huancaya - 3 Days / 2 Nights Rafting

Lagoons, Landscape & Waterfalls.

Huancaya is probably one of the most impressive places on the Peruvian Andes. Lots of waterfalls and little lakes are on the way of the Cañete River. The water of the river is totally clear and has a turquoise color. There are trout everywhere on this Natural Reserve. We will have delicious meals during the days we will have different activities in which we will trek and enjoy the nature.

Just 7 hours from the city of Lima the town of Huancaya, which offers visitors a natural environment away from the smog and traffic of the city, with bucolic surrounding countryside.

Despite the fact it is the largest town in the area, Huancaya is one of the few places in Peru that has not been spoiled by modernization. One can stroll through its cobled streets and feel like one has gone.

Huancaya and its surroundings form part of the Nor-Yauyos-Cochas Reserve, which features a wide diversity of flora and fauna, such as the vizcacha rodent, puma and fox, as well as birds and reptile species which are native to the area. The region also features archaeological sites and ideal routes for trekking, mountain climbing and biking. The rivers also provide some excellent whitewater rafting, while the whole family can go on horseback rides and taste the dairy products for which the area is famous.
