Peru: Canoeing

Mountainous terrain, vast coastal deserts and steamy, tropical rainforests

Peru provides wonderful opportunities for combining canoeing and kayaking combined with other types of adventure holiday. For example, in the Cusco area kayaking is becoming increasingly popular and experienced kayakers will often join rafting trips, taking their kayaks with them. You can also hire kayak equipment from some of the local tour agencies in Cusco. Why not try what the locals use to travel up rivers and hire a dug out canoe? This is one of the main forms of transport in the Amazon region. However, it will not be cheap to hire.
