Seeking adventure and an unforgettable experience? Jump on a raft with us for an adrenaline-packed ride down a Class III – the Jatun Yacu River in Ecuador’s amazon region. Continuous rapids, landscaped by lush rainforest walls dripping with waterfalls, give you a flavor of what will be in store for you.

 

You will paddle over 15 rapids, many of them rated Class III, big gradients lead to a big splash as you ride down the pristinely clean, sparkling waters of the Jatun Yacu River. One of the most exciting runs in Ecuador!

 


This trip begins in Tena where our expert guide will pick you up in private transportation from your hotel and you will travel for 40min to the river put-in. After fitting all of your equipment, we will give you a safety orientation and paddle practice before the adventure begins.

Once on the river, participants will paddle for 4 1/2 hours along the 12-mile stretch with a stop for Lunch halfway down the river to restore your energy for the latter half of the paddle. At the end of the river section, your private transportation will be waiting for you and will take you to your hotel ordown town Tena.
