Ecuador's Upper Rio Jondachi

Here at Sundance Kayak School, the Pacific Northwest is definitely home. However, one thing about whitewater thrill seekers is the fact that we love to travel, especially for a bit of international whitewater.

Our friends at Precision Kayaking run international custom kayaking trips in some pretty amazing places. Primarily, they run instructional and guided trips in Ecuador (though they also offer trips in Peru, Costa Rica, New Zealand and Nepal).

The Lower Misahualli in Ecuador

Lead instructor Andy Round has led trips all over the world but has spent most of his time leading Ecuador kayak trips. He was actually one of the first kayakers to begin exploring Ecuador and can boast multiple first descents in the country.

He runs Ecuador kayak trips each year and specializes in taking small groups of equally skilled kayakers or just one paddler at a time. Each excursion is completely customized for each individual.
