River Chili – Charcani

We pick you up from your hotel at 8 am and drive to the Chili River.  It is located approximately 25 minutes from the city of Arequipa, in southern Peru, near Chapi Chico (Charcani).  Along the way, we pass through the Traditional District of Yanahuara beside the bank of the Chili River, then we continue to Carmen Alto viewpoint and Acequia Alta up to “La Gruta de la Virgen” (Virgin´s grotto).  We start the rafting at the base of a cliff between Chachani and Misti volcanoes.

The rafting time in the river is one hour and a half and the distance is about 7 kilometres.  In some parts, the river is narrow, making the navigation of the river exciting and adventurous.  Be prepared to get a little wet and feel an adrenaline rush. The journey through the valley of Chilina offers us marvellous geographic formations and picturesque platforms or terraces with several cultivations.

Enjoy a hot drink at the end of the rafting before we take you back to Arequipa and your hotel.
