White water rafting

Enjoy a white-water trip with mile-after-mile class-IV rapids in a spectacular rainforest and canyon sceneries. Here, you can expect to run more white water rapids in a day than you would in a week somewhere else.

Beginners and families can have  their first experience on calmer water along the headwater of the Amazon tributary streams.

Rock climbing

Ecuador offers some of the finest lines in different grades.  The rock is volcanic and tends to offer lots of small holds and crags.

There are walls near Quito, Baños and Cuenca with easy access and pre-established routes.

Sigsigpamba, Quito – the shady basalt crag is likely the most popular in the Quito area.

Cojitambo, Cuenca – the 150-meter wall of Cojitambo was one of the first climbing areas developed in Ecuador.
