Kayaking and rafting

Kayak along the great rivers of Latin America, along the coasts and through archipelagos; ride white water in a professionally guided raft.


Synonymous with adventure sport, white-water rafting is exhilarating and good fun. A day’s rafting can add a splash of adrenaline to many of our holidays, particularly in Costa Rica, Peru and Chile, where infrastructure is excellent and safety standards top-notch. Meanwhile kayaking is widely available throughout Latin America and is often combined with wildlife spotting.

What our experts say

The grounds are breathtakingly beautiful with orchids and epiphytes dripping from every tree. On a short morning bird walk I saw 3 types of toucan as I wandered around the lodge.
