  • White-water rafting, Tena

    Tena is known to be a good place for white-water rafting. There are rivers nearby for different levels; class 3, class 4 and even class 5. There are many agencies adverticing rafting in Tena, but you should be sure to go with one with good reputation. I went rafting with River People, a company owned by a family who moved to Ecuador from Ireland...

  • lots of choices in Ecuador

    Ecuador has more than its share of sporting activities. An avid hiker could spend a lifetime here and backpacking in the wilderness is pretty unlimited too. The snorkeling and scuba possibilities are top notch and even the simple act of swimming can be a joy if you find the right watering hole like Las Grietas!

  • Cycling - Quito area and beyond

We did a 4 day cycle trip with Jorge Cruz out of the Hosteria San Jorge, 15 minutes north of Quito. The routes were a blast & very challenging. Jorge loves to cycle so you are in good hands! jorge provided the equipment,...

  • Climbing Volcan Tungurahua

    This volcanoe is very active at the time and not considered stable. Many guides will refuse to take you up, but they WILL show you the way if you want to go on your own. So I climbed it on my own with no problems. You can't go all the way to the top because of the volcanic activity. But you can climb up to the refugio which sits at about 3800...
