The tour starts early in the morning headed 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 at the shore 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 safety briefing and paddle technique on land. Once in the water the idea is first to get acquainted with the board, paddling techniques and making turns.
At our return the family at Piuray will recieve us with a nice lunch, made based on local produce such as potatoes, corn, quinoa and if we are lucky and the local fisherman did well, we will have fresh Trout Cebiche. After a hot infusion, we relax and enjoy the spectacular views. This is for sure an experience that will amaze you, join us!
Things to know:
The lake offers perfect conditions, no wind or waves so the board is pretty stable. Depending on your skills, the idea is to circle all the lake, paddling a distance of approximately 5 km in more or less 1.5 to 2 hours. The difficulty level is minimum as most of the time we paddle close to the shores.
