Rafting is one of the most -if not the most- popular tourist attraction in Tena. So while in Tena, make sure to go rafting with the best. River People raft more rivers than any other company in the area. They have some of the most experienced guides IN THE COUNTRY. And you can’t beat the amazing lunch you’ll have on your trip.
