Join us for another South America adventure, but this time we are heading to the jungles of Ecuador! We are stoked to announce we have teamed up with a long established outfitter in Ecuador which combined with our international guiding experience means we can finally offer you the Ecuador River Running Adventure! 

Who is this trip aimed at?

We are aiming this trip at the paddler who's comfortable paddling grade 3 and looking to push their paddling to grade 4. An example of this would be paddling the Upper Dart but may occasionally walk round features like surprise surprise. If you're still not sure, drop us a message and we will be able to discuss if this trip is right for you.



We aim to paddle as many of the "classic" rivers as we can during this trip, and with the huge variety of whitewater available no two days need be the same!  Given the quality of the rivers in the area though, the plan can be flexible to allow repeat days on some rivers if the group wants to revisit any favourite runs. Below we have a plan outlining how we'll spend the 12 days in Ecuador.
