Utcubamba River, Amazonas
With the increase in tourism to this spectacular region, it has now become viable to offer full and half-day rafting tours on the lovely Utcubamba River, beginning and ending in Chachapoyas.
It is a 45-minute drive from the city to the entry point, which is just after the turning to Lamud and Karajia. From here, rafters spend an hour and a half in the water, negotiating Level II & III rapids. There is one rocky section which requires portage.
The exit point is the tiny riverside village of Churuja.
