Rafting and kayaking

White water rafting and kayaking can add a real touch of excitement to any Ecuador family vacation.

Since Ecuador is crossed by the natural wonder of the Andean mountains, it is blessed with many tumbling rivers, some flowing east down to the Pacific coast and some west into the Amazon basin. These natural conditions make Ecuador an ideal place to enjoy this high adventure sport.

There are great spots around the Mindo and Baños areas where rafting and kayaking tours can be undertaken, along beautiful rivers which pass through the stunning landscapes of canyons and jungles.

There are different classes of rivers to accommodate all levels of adventurers, some offer an easy and enjoyable course whilst others offer more difficult rapids for those who are looking for a bigger challenge.
