Season

The main season for this raft tour is June to October, where weather is warm, sunny and water levels are perfect, trips are also offered in the shoulder season in May and November.

It is possible to travel between November-May, however water levels can be extremely high, and weather less predicatable (storms to be expected). For this reason, trips in highwater season are only open to participants who are strong swimmers and experienced in the outdoors and not afraid of a true adventure.

Absolutely incredible experience! I have know Ben for quite a few years, but never gone on a trip with him and Luigi. I knew it would be fun and interesting -- but this really blew all expectations out of the water. The rafting was wildly fun. The food was fantastic. The camaraderie was great and we made lasting friendships. More than anything, Ben and Luigi shared their passion and knowledge of the area with us. It was an amazing experience.
What an amazing experience! This trip was better than I could have hoped for. The scenery, the guides, the food, the fun. It is obvious from the beginning that these guides are passionate about their work and about the river that they are working hard to protect. They are attentive, organized, and just all around excellent people to spend time with. Our 7 day experience combined a perfect mix of adventure, learning, and simply being. I will cherish my memories of the Maranon for a lifetime. Thank you Ben and Luigi!
We floated the Rio Maranon in October 2019 from Chagual to Puerto Malleta (13 days) with Maranon Experience. We found large sandy beaches, exciting rapids, beautiful scenery, good food and educational cultural experiences with local people. It was a row-your-own style trip with a group of our experienced river friends. Our guide Luigi was fantastic - very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, thoughtful, and fit right in with our group. We highly recommend this trip with Maranon Experience!
I absolutely loved my 7-day trip on the Maranon with Ben, Luigi, and company. The river itself was a perfect introduction to whitewater rafting, with the right balance of thrilling class IV rapids but the safety net of very experienced guides. The natural beauty of the canyon was stunning, with breathtaking views of the Andes around every corner. I really enjoyed the day hikes to lookouts and waterfalls. Connecting with local villagers (e.g., taking part in soccer games and fiestas) was also a highlight. And the food was far better than I thought possible for a large group camping trip. The guides themselves were super friendly and easy to get along with, extremely knowledgeable about the river, the local geography, and history of the region. They are clearly passionate about preserving the Maranon, and have done a fantastic job at creating an enivironmentally-friendly, ethical business. It was truly an experience of a lifetime!
