Ecuador in January 2011
Posted: Fri Nov 05, 2010 10:21 am
I am heading to Ecuador for a week of packraft river and ocean paddling. I have contacted a whitewater kayak guide service to do a packraft based tour. Dates are 1/15 - 1/23. They are calling it rivers and oceans. 4 days running class III rivers, 3 days on the coast playing in the ocean. The outfiter has set up paragliding, and surfing lessons at the ocean that is included in the price. There will be deep sea fishing available for an additional fee if you like. Snorkel gear will be available for our use as well. After landing in Quito, on Saturday 1/15, the plan is for the group to head for the rivers on Sunday. We keep moving west staying in a new town and running a new river each day. On Saturday, 1/22, we drive back to Quito, stop on the way to run a final river, spend the night in Quito. Fly out on Sunday 1/23. Price includes just about everything, quality lodging, food, guides, transportation, and side tours when we are off the river. This is not a dirty bag budget trip, it is for folks that appreciate comforts, and want to use their time well, no hanging out for a day trying to figure out where the put-in is and how to get there. Fire off an email if you want to get on board, want to keep the group to 4- 8 paddlers.
