Propel yourself through the waters of the Sacred Valley on a stand-up paddle board. The Incas have been practicing 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 paddle boarding 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. Teetering at around 3,300 metres you’ll 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 paddle board, 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.
