Rafting on the Chile River, Arequipa

The Chile River is located between to colossal volcanoes Misti and Chachani in Arequipa. The river flows from the high Andes of Arequipa and the border of Cusco and Puno, into the National Reserve of Aguada Blanca y Salinas, then it goes down to Chilina Valley, Arequipa city and finally the river cut the dries desert between the Uchumayo and the Pacific Ocean.

It’s a great experience for nature and adventure lovers, with breath-taking views all along the way. The trip takes about 3 hours with class 2 up to class 4 rapids. The guides are great and each time warned us when we needed to get into the boat, whenever they feel it could get a little rough. We never felt unsafe.
