Trip Summary

Today you will enjoy the rapids on the Quijos River that challenged two hundred and fifty of the world’s best rafters as they battled it out in October 2005 to be crowned World Champions!

The day starts early with a 2, 5 drive towards the Quijos Valley. 

At the base you’ll enjoy a country style breakfast and be fitted up with wetsuits, life jackets and helmets. You will also receive a briefing with safety instructions and paddling techniques. 

You’ll be thankful there are some easier rapids to warm up on before we hit the big technical rapids of the river’s upper canyons. But don’t panic – it was our years of experience running the Quijos that convinced us to invite you all to compete on this truly remarkable river. Rafting time approximately 2, 5 hrs.

During the trip we’ll stop by the side of the river for a snack and a delicious picnic lunch including fresh tropical fruits and served with soft drinks, juice and water. And of course we celebrate a fun day on the river with an ice-cold beer.
