The Amazon still has unexplored areas
Expedition to an unexplored jungle area in the Amazon. There are areas that features dormant volcanic cones and hills, as well as virgin forests that form one of the geologically oldest areas of the Amazon rainforest. Most of this area is unknown and unexplored. This historically inaccessible and highly biodiverse area is home to an impressive number of rare and endemic species.
These expeditions are designed for teamwork. There are no “tourist” services. All participants will form a team and must strive to collect firewood, catch fish, prepare food, purify water, build shelters, make rafts, and other activities that help us succeed in this challenge.
