What to expect on the Rafting Trip
- Unforgettable Experience: For the rest of your life, you will not forget the 7-8 hours that you will spend with us on the Jatun Yacu River. The rapids and awesome nature will make you feel glad to be alive!
- Class III Rapids: The rapids on the Jatun Yacu River are classified as III meaning that they have moderate waves and are suited to intermediate rafters. (If you are a beginner, don’t worry, as we will teach you all that you need to know and guide you through the rapids safely.) At some points on the river, you will be able to relax and float calmly down the river enjoying the scenery, at others, you will be left energised and your body pumping with adrenaline.
- Professional, Fun Guides: Whilst safety is our absolute priority, the highly professional and experienced guides at Kayak Ecuador will make sure your trip is entertaining. They will make you laugh and ensure that your trip is enjoyable and 100% fun and safe!
- Amazonian Cloud Forest: This part of Ecuador is insanely beautiful. From the crystal clear waters to the colourful orchids blooming on the side of the mountain. The Jatun Yacu River is a tributary to the mighty Amazon River.
- Kichwa Community: On our journey downstream, we will stop on a small island and interact with a local Kichwa community, indigenous to this part of the Amazon.
