South America

South America is endowed with the incredible Andes Mountain range which extends like the spine of the continent for 4,500 miles (7,200 kilometres). The geological wonderland of the Andes has created deep canyons, broad river valleys, and an amazing number of rivers suitable for whitewater rafting.

South American countries with incredible river running include Ecuador, Peru, Chile and Argentina. Unlike North America, the best months for rafting in South America tend to be in the months of September to February, which are the spring and summer months in the southern hemisphere.
