Ready to sign up for a trip?

Awesome!  Scroll down and use the form below to sign up. Small World Adventures will operate next season in accordance with Ecuador’s entry requirements and COVID protocols.

You can also use this form to order the Kayaker’s Guide to Ecuador. If you are ordering a book from Europe then try our friends at AS WaterSports in the UK.

If this form does not meet your needs or you have questions then contact our main office by email or phone and we will help you through the process of choosing a trip or making a payment. We are here to help and are looking forward to boating with you!

Note: Most folks do a good job of signing up for a trip that is appropriate to their ability level. However if you get to Ecuador and we find that your skills are not up to the trip you’ve selected, or your roll isn’t working and you are swimming frequently, we may have to ask you to sit out certain days, or pay for a private guide to take you to a different section of river. We must prioritize the safety of the entire group so we encourage you not to get in over your head in Ecuador! Please contact the SWA office if you have questions about this.

Paddling with Small World in Ecuador is a personalized fully catered experience. Get yourself to Ecuador and let our experienced guides and staff take care of the rest. All of our trips in Ecuador include seven days of paddling, great food and accommodations and plenty of time to relax and explore when off the water. For all these trips, you will arrive in Quito, Ecuador (UIO) on a Saturday at the latest and fly home the following Saturday night (after 6pm) or Sunday.

Items that are included:

  • All accommodations while paddling (Sunday night through Friday night)
  • Transportation from Quito to the lodge and back
  • All shuttles while kayaking
  • All meals from lunch Sunday through lunch Saturday
  • Kayak rental
  • The best guides in Ecuador!

Items that are not included:

  • Airfare to and from Ecuador
  • Hotel in Quito the Saturday you arrive and the last Saturday of the trip (if you stay the night)
  • Airport pick up (your hotel should offer this service and the pick up usually costs $5-$10/person)

Deposits and Cancellation Policy

CANCELLATION POLICIES. A non-refundable deposit of $375 is required to make a reservation. Full payment is due 60 days prior to departure. If you cancel your trip at least six weeks before the trip start date you will receive a full refund less $375. Written cancellation is required. You are welcome to find a qualified replacement, and receive a refund less $100. We regret that we cannot make refund exceptions for personal emergencies or health problems. Once your reservation is confirmed, we lose the potential to sell that spot to someone else. Because of this, we strongly recommend “trip cancellation/ trip interruption” insurance. Trip insurance is also good for unforeseen costs/delays in your travel. For example, all the hotels in Quito will expect you to pay for your room if your flight is delayed and you can’t make it for the night of your reservation. Itineraries and trip prices are subject to change due to circumstances beyond our control. Trips may be canceled if required minimums are not met. Normal minimum is 3 people. A trip maybe cancelled with less than 3 participants or a surcharge of $400 may be added to keep the trip running. Full refunds will be given for trips we cancel.
