Six kayakers. 400 kilometers. A 17-day self-supported trip down the Apurimac River.
In 1975, Calvin Giddings led a group of paddlers down the first descent of Peru’s Abismo de Apurimac. Thanks to their commitment to complete the first descent of the Apurimac’s main whitewater section, the We Are Hungry (WAH) crew can confidently enter this box canyon.
In September 2016 Jan Praprotnik, Andrej Bijuklič, Matjaž Lužar and Jure Stan went to Peru to kayak multidays. Alonso Compana ”Rambito” (Apuramic explorer rafting agency) kindly hosted us in his house (gracias amigo). First we stormed to the Urubamba to get the feeling of Peruvian rivers. It is there were we all met. Next on the menu were some clasics. Paucartambo to warm up (3 days), Apurimac abismo canyon (3 days), Pachachaca (3 days).
