Our newest rowing school is on rivers of the Amazonian rainforest in Ecuador. We’ll be stying an eco lodge each night and rowing a variety of local rivers each day.
This winter (2024) will be our first course offered in partnership with our friends at Kayak Ecuador. Zach will be researching this trip the week before and guiding/instructing this trip.
