Embark on an expedition of a lifetime, into one of the most secluded corners of the jungle, where you’ll trek 25 miles (40 km) on foot through uncharted regions of the Amazon. Upon reaching the river’s headwaters, we’ll craft dugout canoes from logs, setting off on a 50-mile (80 km) downstream journey that will lead you to an indigenous community.

Our choice of this area is driven by its remarkable biological diversity, making it an ideal destination for pursuits like wildlife photography and tracking in this thriving wildlife hotspot.

We designed these expeditions for teamwork. There are no “tourist” services. All participants must strive to collect firewood, fish, prepare food, purify water, build shelters, make rafts, and carry out all the activities necessary to succeed in this challenge.
