Marañón rafting tour (Inner Gorge: Grand Canyon of the Amazon)
At SierraRios LLC, we offer and outfit rafting and kayaking expeditions on Río Marañón through the Grand Canyon of the Amazon. These are trips similar to those through the Grand Canyon of the Colorado but on a less developed more rugged river and canyon. To raft the full canyon requires ~26 days, but it can be divided into 4 sections each of which takes ~7 days. We provide fully guided tours or basic outfitting service (for experienced groups of boaters). Rates vary based on the number of days for the tour, the number of participants in your group and the level of service you desire, but start at ~$800/pp for a week-long tour with basic outfitting service for a full group (16+). UPPER GRAND CANYON trips (6-14 days) are based out of Huaraz, while MAIN GRAND CANYON trips (7-14 days) are based out of Trujillo. We have outfitted/guided 38 groups to traverse the river between 2012-2018 and are the original and primary service provider for the Marañón. We have friendly trusting relationships with the residents along the river and work actively to protect the river. We know how to provide what you desire to accomplish your goals.

We offer and outfit rafting and kayaking expeditions through the Grand Canyons of the world. These are trips similar to those through the Grand Canyon of the Colorado but usually on less developed, more rugged rivers with little visitation. Trips are a minimum of ~7 days but generally average 12-14 days. To raft through the some Grand Canyons requires ~30 days. We provide fully guided tours or basic outfitting service (for experienced groups of boaters). Rates vary based on the number of days for the tour, the number of participants in the group and the level of service desired. Our main goal is river conservation, which we accomplish through publicity, bringing more people to the rivers we seek to protect, and working with employing local residents to protect their free-flowing rivers.

Outfitting Service is akin to basic rental and available to experienced rafting groups. Outfitting Service pricing includes boats/equipment, shuttle, food pack, coordinating bilingual guide, and varies depending on the number of days and how many are in your group. Rates start at $780/pp for a 7-day trip with full group but are most typically $1200/pp for a 14-day trip with full group. [For comparison, a fully guided trip is roughly double this cost for an individual to join.]
