These rivers wind their way through spectacular gorges, canyons, valleys and jungles, and leave behind hundreds of miles of breathtaking world class whitewater that feed into the mighty Amazon River.
Ecuador offers excellent, year-round whitewater rafting. In addition to their nearly continuous flows, Ecuadorian rivers, especially those in the east, have warm, tropical waters and excellent accessibility. There are a variety of rivers to choose from, with varying grades of difficulty.
