“Eric Hertz has devoted his life and his company’s resources to saving some of the world’s last great white-water, wilderness rivers.".
"Earth River is the premier river runner in the world. Their staff includes the finest guides to be found."
“Earth River is more than a great whitewater outfitter. Their contributions have made a real difference in our efforts to preserve some of the world's most beautiful rivers in Chile and Canada."
"I want to personally thank Earth River for helping us stop the hydro-electric projects on our land preventing the destruction of one of North America's last great wildernesses.
“I’ve rafted with Eric Hertz down some tough rivers—the Futaleufu in Chile, the Colca in Peru. He's one of the best in the business—obsessed with safety."

“After 20 years of searching, on five continents, 
we have finally discovered an expedition that rivals the Futaleufu."


Only a handful of people have made this extraordinarily diverse journey. It begins in an area that once led to the Lost Incan City of Gold and ends at soaring mountain-top Inca ruins of Machu Picchu. The river takes you from the white crown of the Andes to the raucous, green symphony of the Amazon Jungle. The exotic sights and sounds along the river are astounding: palm tree-size ferns, massive cacti, giant otters, finger-size monkeys, blizzards of butterflies, and rainbow-colored Macaws.

This recently discovered whitewater gem has dozens of class 3 and 4 rapids, for paddle rafting and inflatable kayaking. Two of South America’s grandest marvels, the Pongo Mainique Canyon and Machu Picchu, are part of the itinerary. In terms of biological diversity, native culture and history, weather, scenery and whitewater, this Peruvian journey stands alone in the world of river-based adventure travel.  It is also rare to find a river with few bugs, swimming pool temperature water, days in the low eighties and nights in the sixties.
