Toachi & Blanco 2 DAYS 

Class II & III

 

The Toachi and Blanco rivers are a blast for experienced rafters and have proved to be the beginning of a whitewater addiction for thousands of first-timers. 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 environment we pass through and you are guaranteed a day to remember.

Departures
Any day

Day 1

Starts when we pick you up from your hotel or from our Meeting Point at Magic Bean (7.00am corner of Foch y Juan León Mera). We travel west down through beautiful cloud forest to the shores of the river (approx. 3hrs).

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”. Rafting time approx. 3 and half-hours.

During the trip we’ll stop by the side of the river for a delicious picnic lunch including fresh tropical fruits and served with soft drinks, juice and water. At the end of the trip we celebrate a fun day on the river with a few ice cold beers and return to our hosteria alongside the river – the sound of the waters a constant reminder of our adventure. In the afternoon there’ll be time to hike in the surrounding rainforest or just relax by the pool. In the evening we can relive our experiences as we enjoy a delicious dinner and a few celebratory drinks.

Day 2

On day 2 Today we’ll head back to the river for more whitewater action but also have the chance to catch our breath and take in the splendor of the surroundings. At the end of the trip we celebrate a fun day on the river with a few ice-cold beers and return to Quito. Arrival time is approximately 6.30 – 7.00 pm but may be earlier or later depending on the river level and traffic conditions.
