Stand Up Paddle Huaypo

We Have Very Safe, Stable and Easy-to-use Boards.  

The SUP tour offers the possibility to enjoy the beautiful surroundings in a safe and relaxing way. The tours are designed for people who want to enjoy the peace and tranquility offered by the calm waters of the lagoon.


Practiced originally on the shores of Hawaii, stand up paddle boarding (SUP) has become increasingly popular in recent years. Having heard a lot about it, I decided to try out the soft adventure sport on a stunning high altitude lake near Cusco. This adventure activity takes half a day and is best in the morning when the winds are calmer. Combine SUP with an afternoon visit to Incan ruins or other top adventure activities in the Sacred Valley.


  • Access a place of breathtaking beaty and explore it in its own nature.
  • Learn about the customs of the Andean people and their close link to this magical lagoon.
  • Delight your palate with a delicius outdoor luxury picnic.
Day 1: Cusco | Stand Up Paddle at Huaypo Lake

Stand Up Paddle  in Cusco -Unlike many activities in the Cusco area, Stand Up Paddle Boarding is not a sport that requires a great deal of physical exertion on a gentle, still lake (unless you want to push yourself to go faster!), therefore it can be gentle option to take on while acclimatizing to altitude or when unwinding on the days after a long trek.

  • Tour Type: Private Service Only
  • Activities: Sustanaible Activity, ecological, nature, wildlife and Adventure with Scenic Views.
  • Tour Duration: 2:00 hours (activity on the lake).
  • Pick up location: Customer’s hotel in Cusco or anywhere in the historical center such as the Plaza de Armas, or another place, just let us know. This Stand Up Paddle tour can be started from Ollantaytambo, Urubamba and finishing in Cusco or viceversa.
  • Pick up Schedules: @ 8:30am if the tour starts in Cusco and too if the tour begins at any hotel in Ollantaytambo or Urubamba.

08:30 am - Recommended time to leave either Cusco or Urubamba. Huaypo Lake is equidistant from either city - approximately a 45-minute drive.
09:30 am - We arrive to the facilities of Pacha Peru on the shores of Huaypo Lake, where there awaiting us are hot drinks, water, and snacks (fruits and other light snacks). We start with a welcome briefing, then do a stretching session to warm up. Once the stretching session is finished, the following equipment will be provided: boards, oars, wetsuits and life vests. The guide will give you a technical and security briefing.
10:00 am - We enter the water where, depending on the level of the group, we’ll paddle for anywhere from an hour to an hour and a half. In this time, you will be able to learn the technique and paddle around the lake, taking in the awe-inspiring landscape, abundant birdlife, and surrounding farmland.
11:30 am - We return to the shore, where you have the rest of the afternoon at your disposal. There will be fruit and drinks available.
01:00 pm - We head back to the hotel, arriving at approximately 2:00 pm.

We want to make your trip to Peru as memorable and as carefree as possible. In this section, you’ll find the answers to all the questions you have about traveling with Pacha Peru Explorers in one place. Please read the following information carefully – it will help you with any questions about our services.

Briefing or Informative Meeting: All information meetings and briefings are held in our main office in Cusco (or your hotel) at 5:00 pm, one night before the tour begins. These meetings last approximately 30 to 45 minutes. If you’re unable to attend, you must coordinate another time by email, by phone or at the Pacha Peru Explorers office.

Trek Balance Payment (in Cusco): The trek has to be paid for in full at most 7.30 pm one day before your departure (generally after the briefing).
It would be much appreciated if you pay the trek balance in cash US dollars or local currency at our office in Cusco. You can withdraw some money from several ATMs along Avenida Sol (either in US dollars or local Peruvian Soles). You can pay by credit card or PAYPAL online, but you will have to pay an 6% service charge, charged by VISA and PAYPAL. We do not accept bank checks or payment of the balance by traveler’s checks.

Can I store my luggage at your office?: During the trip, your main luggage can be stored at our office (you can organize it with us on the briefing day or by email) or at your hotel, both free of charge.
Any equipment that you won’t need on the trek can be stored safely in your hotel. Nearly every hotel will provide this service. Don’t leave items of value with your bags; put them in the hotel safe and obtain an itemized receipt (in the unlikely case of theft, many insurance companies require that you have a copy of the receipt itemizing everything). It’s best to put items such as credit cards inside a sealed, signed envelope for extra peace of mind.

Pick up of guests: Pacha Peru Explorers can pick you up from your hotel, as long as it’s in the Historical Center of Cusco. Your guide will coordinate the pickup time in the briefing session, but please keep in mind that the time may vary between 30 and 45 minutes due to traffic.
Cusco is an old city, meaning it has many narrow cobbled streets. Some hotels and Airbnbs may be located on streets without access to cars or on long, steep slopes, making it difficult to transport luggage. We strongly recommend that you book accommodation with good access.

Group Tours: Group tours are made up of different types of people, then physical conditions and ages can vary. By agreeing to be part of a group tour, you also accept that some people may be faster or slower than you. Therefore, each person can go at their own pace on the route.
It may be the case that a group wishes to modify the tour; however, the guide will be the one who decides, after consulting with all the participants, if such modifications are possible.

Strikes and demonstrations: Strikes and demonstrations are usually common in Peru, and this may interrupt some of our tours. Roads can be blocked, and train tracks can be taken over. However, we will try to keep your trip as originally planned, even if it means leaving the night before the scheduled date. Under these circumstances, tours may also be canceled. In case of changes or cancellations, everything will be coordinated with you by our operations department. Your safety is our highest priority, and our decisions will be made to protect it.

Lost Objects: Please pay attention to where you leave your things and remember to take everything once you leave our transport or restaurants. You’re the only one responsible for your objects during the tour.

"Stand Up Paddle Tour" can leave any day of the week, from January through December.
