Full description
Spend the day whitewater rafting in the Amazon rain forest of Ecuador’s Jatun Yacu River on a full-day tour from Tena. The trip starts early with a pick-up at 08:30 for the 45-minute drive deep into the jungle at Cando. There you will be equipped with a life jacket, helmet, and paddle, and on rare cold days a splash jacket. Fully equipped, your guide will take you through all the safety briefings, including some fun, but serious, role playing to keep you on your toes. Then, it’s time to hit the river, a majestic stretch of water that is just perfect for beginners, with wide open spaces and large waves. But it’s also fun for more experienced adventurers, thanks to large volume rapids. Go downriver through a beautiful landscape, mastering outstanding rapids, and experiencing the adrenaline rush of the white water. A delicious lunch will be served on the river bank, while at the end of your rafting adventure, you’ll be refreshed with complimentary cold beverages.
