Full Day Rafting Quijos River IV


The Quijos is set to become Ecuador’s premier whitewater trip with mile after mile of class IV rapids and spectacular jungle scenery. Expect to run more whitewater in a day than you’d do in a week elsewhere.





Full Day Rafting Quijos River IV

Depart from Magic Bean, 6:30 am. Drive to Baeza. On arrival you’ll be issued with wetsuits, life jackets and helmets. After a short drive to the put-in the Trip Leader will give a thorough safety briefing and conduct a swim test. Then you’ll 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. In the afternoon we’ll raft through the first canyons of the Quijos running big, technical rapids. At the end of the day we celebrate a fun day on the river with a few icy cold beers and return to Quito (approx. 7:30 pm).
