" I had an unbelievable experience and still have not yet come down from the stoke or high we are currently on. That was an absolutely epic trip you put together for us and it couldn't have been done better. You dialed everything in perfectly from the river selections, the rooms we stayed at and all the restaurants we went to". Ryan ID.

Personalized services, we keep it as local as possible offering our guest the highest quality trips from beginning to end,  we operate with certified guides and instructors, following ACA (american Canoe Association) standards of safety, Rescue3 international certifications on swift water rescue, and medical training up to date.

Our Rivers:
Long and continuous rapids, Ecuador is known for having lots of CLASS IV drops connected with class III rapids. The fun never stops when you are paddling here.

We have Class II and III in the area of Tena, and lower elevations,  if you are into paddling warm water and taking your time to practice your skills, this is the place for you, our kayaking schools and technique clinics are based out of Tena. More river running and mostly Class IV and above is for the Quijos river drainage.

We offer you the best time you can have in Ecuador,  it will be a lifetime experience while traveling/kayaking world class whitewater with Us.

All logistics during the trip are taken care of so you don't need to worry about anything, if you have special requests for food as vegetarian or Gluten free is not a problem just let us know.

You can pick your own room (extra fee may apply) or a shared room with a partner on your group, we stay at the closest towns were we will be kayaking to reduce traveling time as much as possible.

Have a really good breakfast in the morning and then get ready for the river, some of the runs we will be kayaking are full day runs and we will enjoy lunch in the river and then in the evening we will visit our best trusted restaurants at night to enjoy the best of the Ecuadoriancuisine !!. Tena offers some good night lifetime and some really good cocktails!!. check out the menu at the Guayusa Lounge . Dank!!

We have two seasons in Ecuador's jungle rainy and very rainy, the drier season is generally November to February but varies by region the itinerary of the trip is subjected to changes due to precipitation and water levels, we will paddle the Quijos river drainage and in the Tena area for class III & IV trips, we may include the Baños area for the class V tours.
Quijos and Baños area has a very spring like weather, around the 6000 feet above sea level cool at night and warm during the day, water can be a little cold coming from the highlands (paramos), no many bugs here. Down towards the amazon basin in the Tena area 1500 feet elevation nice and hot during the day, normally has a warm, humid and rainy climate. The average temperature varies from 23° to 26°C [72° to 80°F] skin to the wind paddle weather, even the shorty top can be much, but it keeps water out of your boat, sunscreen is highly recommended to have when in Ecuador.

Piatua is as classic as it gets.

" I really can't tell you enough how awesome the trip was. I'm sure putting together the overnighter was hard. Everything was super smooth and well planned. The food was awesome. We never went hungry or got sick. It was all good. I could keep going on about how awesome the trip was, but hopefully you get the point. "  Allison D.
