The First Descent of the Huallaga River in Peru

The Kayak Telluride team recently went to Peru, where they made the first Descent of the Rio Huallaga, which was the last major tributary of the Amazon that had yet to be navigated. What they found there was plenty of whitewater to run and unexplored river to float. Check out some great footage from their adventure in the video below.

Exploring by kayaking on a river that hasn’t been run before has to be a fantastic experience.
