Description

Trip to attractive South American Ecuador nicely combines various sport activities and touring. First stop of this expedition will be Quijos, Misahualli, Pastaza and Napo rivers. They have different character. Some start as technical low volume rivers and change with every tributary gaining on volume and strenght. Some are big water rivers from the beginning. These five white water days will definitely not disappoint even those with high expectations.

In between the rafting we'll have two days tour out in the Amazon rainforest.

Next mainstay of the program is climbing of Cotopaxi Volcano - World's highest active Volcano and the second highest mountain in Ecuador reaching 5897 altitude meters (over 19000 feet). It's summit is covered with glacier, therefore we'll have to equip ourselves with proper climbing gear. Prior to the climb we'll do some trekking and short technique training of climbing equipment practice.

Beeing already in South America is the best opportunity to visit unforgettable Galápagos Islands (optional additional program).
