Prepare yourself for an expedition that will ignite your spirit in one of the most isolated regions of the Amazon rainforest. You’ll embark on a 25-mile (40 km) trek on foot, venturing deep into the untamed jungle, until you arrive at the source of a river. Once there, we will craft canoes from palm tree trunks to journey down the river for 50 miles (80 km), until we reach a native community.

Our choice of this area is inspired by its rich biological diversity, providing an ideal setting for capturing stunning wildlife photography.

These expeditions are tailored for teamwork. There are no “tourist” services. All participants are expected to actively contribute by gathering firewood, fishing, preparing meals, purifying water, constructing shelters, crafting rafts, and engaging in all the essential activities required for success in this challenge.
