AAER01   Full Day Rafting (Toachi or Blanco Rivers)    1D


The Toachi and Blanco Rivers are a fantastic introduction to the rivers of Ecuador. Flowing off the coastal side of the Andes they have some of the longest navigable sections of white water in the country. Combine this with the sights and sounds of the forest environment we pass through and you are guaranteed a day to remember.


The day starts when we pick you up from our meeting point. Transport to Santo Domingo de los Colorados, from where we drive approximately 15 minutes to the put-in, where the adventure starts. Before setting off, we will fit you with life jackets and helmets and give you a comprehensive safety briefing training each crewmember on the paddling techniques needed to navigate our way down the river. Once on the river you can expect both the action of thrilling white water and the tranquility of drifting silently through tropical rainforest. Therefore, while you are guaranteed to get wet, you will also have the opportunity to be absorbed by the sounds of the forest and to see wildlife up close from our mobile “viewing platform”. Rafting time is approximately 3 ½ hours. During the trip, we will stop by the side of the river for a delicious picnic lunch including fresh tropical fruits and soft drinks, juice and water. At the end of the trip, we celebrate a fun day on the river with a few ice-cold beers and return to Quito (approx. 6:30 – 7:00 p.m.) .
