CUSIPATA Rafting and Biking

We offer a unique experience in the city of Arequipa. Located at only 20 minutes from downtown is the Chilina Valley, place where the Chili river flows free of contamination and an area where impressive walls of volcanic rock make themselves known.

The valley is a beautiful place to get to know on a mountain bike or in a boat, during our rafting tour.
