About us

Whitewaterescape organizes guided kayak trips in Ecuador. We made it our mission to plan tours and adjust them exactly to the wishes of our guest.

After exploring Ecuador by several month long tours by our one, we now have the knowledge about the rivers and the regions. To ensure a quality tour not only at, but also next  to the river, we work closely with local transport companies, hotels and restaurants.
