Kayaking and River Rafting Tours in the Galapagos Islands, Costa Rica and More

Fifteen adventure tours, six trip extensions, all with the same focus: rafting/kayaking. It's one of our specialties. We offer such a variety of these Central and South American eco trips, knowing they appeal to an eclectic mix of adventure travelers. Some enjoy kayaking through narrow waterways seeking a close-up view of Galapagos wildlife or sidling up to a Patagonia glacier. Others want the adrenalin rush of Costa Rica rafting on the Pacuare and Chile rafting on the Futaleufu. Whatever you're looking for in a rafting or kayaking trip, we offer it.
