Therefore, Ecuador is one of the very few spots worldwide where you can run so many rivers in such a few days.
If you are looking forward to become a better paddler you might want to pick our Progression dates, but if you know your whitewater level and just want to paddle as much as possible; go ahead and choose the right class Week for you (Class III-IV or III+IV+) While in the water there will be 1 Kayak Guide for every 3 kayakers and 1 photographer/safety for the whole group.

Since we are a local Ecuadorian company and our staff lives in the area, we know the best and coolest places to eat and hang out. This guarantees that paddlers will make the most of their time, both inside and outside the water. No matter your previous experience, you will learn and make the most of your trip by paddling new rivers, and living in the amazing Ecuadorian Amazon rainforest for 7 DAYS, 7 RIVERS.

Itinerary

Meeting Place

Quito Airport/Hotel

Tena/Archidona, Kayak Ecuador's Headquarters

7 Days of pure fun and whitewater! Forget about logistics, we've got it all covered! Check out the details...

Day 1:

Hotel/Airport Pick Up and Transfer to Tena. Kayak selection & Briefing. Optional Run during the Afternoon + Welcome Dinner Quito, the capital of the country is located 3 hours away from our Headquarters. We are going to travel from the Andean city of Quito (9 350,4 ft) to the Amazon basin.

Day 2:

Descent of Jatun Yacu & Napo River. Today is a good day to warm up in one of the most friendly and popular runs in the area. This big water pool drop river, has some big waves and powerful hydraulics if the water is up. At low water, it is much easier and a bit more technical.

Day 3:

Descent of Upper Misahuallí River. This is our backyard run and probably one of the best runs in the country. Logistics are easy today...we can finish breakfast and walk down the stairs to start our run. We can do one big descent or laps if you fall in love with one section of the river.

Day 4:

Descent of Jondachi & Hollín River This is one of the premiere Class III/III+ jungle runs in the area. This run is very remote and has beautiful waterfalls spilling into the river, not to mention fun rapids all the way down. Probably the longest day of the week.

Day 5:

Descent of Piatúa River. This hidden Gem is located 45 min from the Lodge but every minute inside the car is worth it. Full of round boulders and as many lines as you can imagine the Piatua river will provide a memorable run in Ecuador

Day 6:

Descent of Cosanga River or Qujos. Depending on the levels we will choose the right run, but our goal is for you to check the rivers in the valley next to Tena. Water is a bit colder but the whitewater quality remains the same.

Day 7:

Descent of Quijos River & Transfer to Quito This section is pretty continuous Class III+ at low to moderate flows and is relatively steep in the upper part. After a short but fun run we will drive you back to the capital for you to keep enjoying Ecuador or to catch your flight back home
