Itinerary

We leave at 9am from the Raft Amazonia office at Av. 15 de Noviembre y Cesar Augusto Rueda. (We can also pick you up from your hotel/hostel if you prefer).

We then head out in the 4×4 to the banks of the river of your choice with the kayaks and all the equipment in the truck.

Once we’re all kitted out and ready to go, we wave goodbye to our driver, push off from the bank and take to the waves!

After a mornings’ kayaking we stop for a delicious lunch when your guide can tell you more about the river and the plants, animals and people who live here.

After more paddling in the afternoon, as the trip ends, we pull in to the side of the river, where the 4×4 will be waiting for us.

A 10-minute drive brings us back to Tena for around 3 or 4 pm.
