Huaraz Travel Guide

White-Water Rafting

There's good rafting on the Río Santa with Class 3 and 4 rapids. The freezing cold glacial river water brings heart-pumping rapids. The most-often-run stretch of river is between Jangas and Caraz. The river can be run year-round, but is at its best during the wettest months of the rainy season, between December and April. Be prepared with the right equipment; the river is cold enough to cause serious hyperthermia.

Monttrek. One of the best rafting outfitters in Huaraz, the company also has friendly and experienced guides for trekking and mountaineering. Av. Luzuriaga 646, upstairs, Huaraz. 043/421–124. From S/45.
