The tour starts early in the morning heading to The Sacred Valley, after about an hour drive we arrive to Chincheros, where Piuray Lake is located. This beautiful lake offers spectacular sceneries, perfect flat water and plenty of birds.

Our base is the home of a local family that lives on the shores of the lake, they will greet us with a smile and share with us a little of their lifestyle and culture.

We start with a yoga inspired stretch and warm up, followed by a safety briefing and paddle technique on land. Once in the water we get acquainted with the board, paddling techniques and making turns.

The lake offers perfect conditions, no wind or waves so the board is pretty stable. Depending on your skills, we circle all the lake, paddling a distance of approximately 5 km in 2 hours; the difficulty level is basic as most of the time we paddle close to the shores.

Back on the ground we put on warm clothes and relax, enjoy a box lunch and a hot infusion before we head to the picturesque town of Ollantaytambo. Free afternoon to explore the Inca ruins of Temple Hill; including monolithic walls and fountains facing the terraced hills.
