Ecuador Rafting & Kayaking Tours

Ecuador is one of the world’s premier rafting and kayaking destinations. Perhaps nowhere else on the planet is there such a concentration of whitewater goodness as where the Andes Mountains meet the Amazon basin and the plains of the Pacific. All trips can be organized out of Quito, and the towns of Tena and Baños also have several operators that specialize in whitewater. The Tena area perhaps offers the most diversity and is where kayakers tend to hang out for the longest period. From Quito, both the spectacular Upano and the trips to the western slope rivers of Rio Blanco and Rio Toachi make it the most highly visited starting point for day trips.

Below are several highly reputable rafting and kayaking companies that can assist you in organizing day trips and up to week-long expeditions.
