|Rafting -Quijos River|
The Quijos river is set to become Ecuador’s premier white water trip with mile after mile of class IV-IV+ rapids and spectacular jungle scenery. Expect to run more white water in a day than you’d do in a week elsewhere. This trip is for experienced rafters that are confident swimmers.
You will then be split into groups for an intensive in-boat paddle practice with your guide. Once we set off we’re straight into the action but with some easier rapids to warm up. Along the way we’ll stop for a riverside picnic lunch and in the afternoon we’ll raft through the canyons of the Quijos, running bigger, more technical rapids. From the take-out we’ll head back to Quito stopping at Papallacta Hot Springs for a well-earned soak in the volcanically heated mineral waters. Arrive in Quito at approx. 8pm or there is an optional overnight stay at Papallacta.
