Discover responsible travel in the Amazon; Colombia, Peru & Brazil  

Deep down in Colombia’s southeastern tip, lies a tri-border where languages, accents and appearance barely matter. A captivating corner of peace and tranquility where man and nature have learnt to co-exist in relative harmony. This little piece of heaven, home to indigenous communities and thriving fauna and flora, is without a doubt one of the most charming spots on the globe. One to tick off your “To do before I die” list.

Oh yes, we’re talking about the astounding rainforest and the magnificent River Amazon, which in this wild region zigzags through the contrasting nations of Colombia, Brazil and Peru. A challenging place where nature is King – just as it should be.

Itinerary

 Day 1 – Leticia (Colombia)

Colombia’s Amazonian capital pulses with energy. This gateway into the jungle offers the perfect balance between urban and rural life. Explore the one and only paved road (fully 14 miles long). Start your trip with a nature walk to an indigenous Maloka (hut) where you will learn all about the process of Mambe, Rape and Ambil.

 

 Day 2 – San Juan Del Soco (Colombia)

Feel the wind whip past while traveling down the almighty Amazon in a speedboat. Visit this distant community and see the reality of Amazonian life. Witness the impact of shortsighted development and the constant struggle to save customs and traditions. Learn the local ways and get back to basics.

Relish a walk through the virgin jungle and get involved in community activities. Take part in our project setting up a sustainable water supply for the local people before spending the night in a hammock on a riverbank.

 Day 3 – Puerto Narino (Colombia)

Arrive at Puerto Narino, the prime jewel of the Amazon and a world-class model for sustainable living. This ecological community is living proof that man and nature can peacefully exist. Explore this captivating symbol of hope and meet the local community.

Spot the gentle pink and playful grey dolphins on a visit to the Tarapoto lakes. Turn hunter-gatherer, as you catch piranhas that you might have the chance to chuck on an evening BBQ.

At night, hit the billiards hall, bar and disco.

 Day 4 – Sacambu (Peru)

Cruise on a traditional slow boat down the enigmatic Amazon. Stop for lunch and a swim at Benjamin Constant (Brazil) before heading on a motorbike-taxi jaunt through the funky little town. Pass by Islandia (Peru) an enchanting, sleepy, semi-floating village before cruising down the River Yavari to Sacambu.

At Sacambu, the delightful owner and his family will charm you with theirAmazonian hospitality. Spend the night suspended in a hammock over wooden decking above a pristine lake, surrounded by the enchanting sounds of nature.

 Day 5 – Yavari (Peru)

A slow ride through winding canals and thick mangroves take you to the Yavari Nature Reserve. Kayaking, canoeing, fishing, swimming, walking and bird watching guarantee an unforgettable day.
