ECUADOR is considered as one of the hot-spots for white water rafting in the world. Our Ecuador Rafting trips will take you to enjoy exciting 1 or 2 day tours on Blanco river and Toachi river. These are fantastic introductions to the Ecuador rivers. Flowing off the coastal side of the Andes, they have some of the longest navigable sections of white water in the country. We also take you to one of the best kept river secrets in the world, the Upano river, for a tour up to 5 or 8 days.
The Quijos is set to become Ecuadorīs premier whitewater trip with many miles of class IV-IV+ rapids together with a spectacular jungle scenery (over 50km!).
