Propel yourself through the waters of the Sacred Valley on a stand-up paddleboard. The Incas have been practising this skill for more than 3,000 years. Traditional fishermen, encumbered with their precious catch, can still be seen today negotiating the waters upon tightly-woven reed boats.
The method may be ancient but your equipment on this stand-up paddleboarding experience is far from antique. Wet suits, life jackets and top-of-the-range boards make it easy for you to navigate the water. Your specialist adventure guide and vehicle will meet you at your hotel. You will then wind through the Sacred Valley’s ancient mountains to Lake Huaypo. At a height of 3,300 metres, soak up uninterrupted views of the rolling Urabamba range.
After taking it all in, it’s time to don your wet suit. Don’t worry: we’ve niftily put up changing rooms and gathered kit tailored to your size. Then set off on your paddleboard, oar in hand. Glide through calm lake waters where you may spot exotic birds nesting in the reeds and local fishermen going about their daily lives.
