Our goal is to provide a worry free and safe experience with maximum paddling and luxury in mind. Spend 7 days paddling the continuous and scenic rivers of Ecuador while being treated to cozy accommodations and cuisine. Let our professional river guides take you on an experience of a lifetime. We take away all the stress of shuttles, river beta, and everything in between. With Ecuador Kayak all you have to worry about is making that boof stroke on the river. From morning to night we are dedicated in making your experience fun filled and memorable.
What To Expect:
7 days of paddling class II to IV in the cloud and rain forest rivers the Quijos and Napo Valley, two different drainages with many different styles of whitewater. Whether you enjoy steep boulder gardens or miles of wave trains you will have the time of your paddling life as you meander through lush jungles literally screaming with wild life. Experience the wonderful culture of Ecuador and it’s friendly people. At Ecuador Kayak with Endless Adventure International we are focused on providing a memorable experience both on and off water. The two different areas explored offer two entirely different climates. The Napo Valley promises tropical weather and warm rivers while the Quijos Valley host’s temperate days and cooler nights with glacier fed rivers.
Land Lover- perfect for the non paddler to accompany the High Roller.

If you want an Ecuador experience without all the paddling we have a trip for you! Join a High Roller trip with friends to explore Ecuador at your own pace on land tours with a guide or solo. Choose one or two days to experience the sights from the river on a mellow cruise or exciting ride in an inflatable kayak. The stability of the Inflatable kayak makes paddling fun, easy and safe.

Off river days consist of site searching, waterfall viewing, exploring caves, soaking in hot pools or a warm Laguna, massages, market shopping, and other adventures are possible. Meet up with your paddling partner for dinner to share your unique experiences with each other.
All Land Lover trips are offered in conjunction with High Roller all inclusive kayak tours. A perfect trip for the accompanying partner of the passionate paddler. If being on land is your preference and you have a trill for adventure and new experiences join an Adventure Trek with Endless Adventure Intl.

We will then retire to a feast of local cuisine and trade river tales over some brews.
