White Water Rafting in Baños
From USD 30.00
Lowest Price Guaranteed
Prepare for a wet and wild day of fun during this 5-hour rafting expedition in the clean, tropical waters near Baños, Ecuador. Head to the Pastaza River, where you’ll strap on your safety gear to brave Class III and IV rapids (depending on the time of year), splashing, paddling and laughing as you go. Finish off your day of rafting adventure with an included lunch at a local eatery. This rafting adventure also covers a guide, a kayaking safety spotter, digital photos and videos of your trip and round-trip transport from Baños.
What to Expect
Your river rafting adventure begins as we meet at our agency at 9am. You can be picked up from your hotel to go to the office if you prefer. At the office, you will be provided with the necessary equipment for your rafting tour. Once everyone is equipped, start the 40-minute drive via private van to San Francisco Town. On the way, you can see and admire different waterfalls, such as Agoyan, Manto de la Novia, El Pailon del Diablo, along the route of the cascades.
When you arrive at the river, you will be given a safety briefing to learn what to do on the raft such as paddling commands and other tips that will keep the group safe on the river. You will practice the commands on land first before getting on the river.
Then, it is time for your rafting experience through the Pastaza River and beautiful scenery. You will raft through Class III to IV rapids, depending on the season of the year. The route through Class III rapids can be taken all year round and covers La Penal to Madre Sierra villages. Rafting on Class IV rapids can be done only from August thru May. This route passes through the upper Pastaza River and goes from San Francisco to Topo.
After an incredible hour of rafting through Class III to IV rapids, we will finish the trip in Topo where your driver will be waiting. To top-off this adventure, enjoy a well-deserved lunch at a local restaurant before returning back to Baños.

Rafting for Families

We loved our morning white water rafting! We were a little nervous about this with young children (daughters 7.5, 9, and 11) but our guide (papuchka??) was amazing- confident, fun, and professional. The kids loved it! Highly recommended.

An absolute blast

I could see this being perhaps scary if you can't swim. But if you are comfortable in the water it is an absolute blast. Probably the most fun we had in Ecuador was white water rafting. The tour guide was awesome, no complaints, definitely worth...More

We where there during March- April and it was all good. I think it doesn't matter as long as you don't go there during wet session because the river might be to strong then.
