In Summary

Why this trip ?

Our Amazon excursions intentionally neglect the more commercial tourist sites, offering a more authentic and representative adventure of the tri-border (Colombia – Peru – Brazil) heart of the Amazon rainforest. Leticia (Colombia) and Tabatinga (Brazil), are the obligatory starting point to access the most interesting protected areas and indigenous reserves of the Amazon River and its tributaries. This adventure is an intense physical and emotional experience amongst fascinating and unique landscapes. The trips are made on foot, by canoe, and by small motorboats. The places you visit, the routes you take, and the activities offered to allow you to enter the heart of a region that will amaze you with the diversity of its fauna and flora.
