THE LONG RUN, a one day rafting trip on the rivers of Ecuador Quito, Ecuador

Happy Gringo Travel  00308691

THE LONG RUN is Ecuador's longest one day rafting trip -departing Quito at 6:30 am and returning approximately 7:30 pm.

The ríos Toachi and Blanco are a fantastic introduction to the rivers of Ecuador. Flowing off the coastal side of the Andes they have some of the longest navigable sections of whitewater in the country. Combine this with the sights and sounds of the forest we pass through and you are guaranteed a day to remember.

Before setting off we will fit you with life jackets and helmets, give you a comprehensive safety briefing and train each crew in the paddling techniques needed to navigate our way down the river. Once on the river you can expect both the action of thrilling whitewater and the tranquility of drifting silently through tropical rainforests. So while you're guaranteed to get wet you'll also have the opportunity to be absorbed by the sounds of the forest and to see wildlife up close from our mobile "viewing platform".

Jun-Feb: over 3 hours of on-river time plus a stop for our delicious riverside picnic lunch. 27km.
Mar-May: over 4 hours of virtually non-stop whitewater on the upper río Blanco. 45km.

For the river you'll need a swimsuit, shorts, t-shirt, river sandals/tennis shoes, and sunscreen. Off river you'll need a copy of your passport, towel, dry change of clothes and insect repellent. Optional items include a baseball cap, sunglasses with retention strap and waterproof camera.

$115 private tour / $87 group tour

Professional guides, rafting equipment, a delicious lunch plus snacks and beers, transport to/from Quito, and fun all the way!

 Happy Gringo Travel.
