Our adventure begins in BOGOTÁ, the Colombian Capital, accompanied by a fun and charismatic tour guide. Our MOMENTS will be so UNIQUE and MEMORABLE that we will feel like true ‘ Amazonians ‘.
We will fly to LETICIA to arrive at its pier in the Amazon River and travel upriver to reach the MARASHA Nature Reserve in Peru, from where we will see the spectacular panoramic view of the 3 borders: COLOMBIA, PERU, and BRAZIL.
We will do bird watching and canoe riding on the Marasha Lake. We will paddle in canoes in the night to observe the natural fauna, among them, alligators. We will visit the Ticuna and Mocawa communities to walk around their houses and crops. We will hike through Maikuchiga to finally get to ‘ the House of the Monkeys ‘. When enjoying the jungle landscapes, we will identify species used in ethnobotany.
We will visit the Community of San Martín de Amacayacu; we will walk in the night through the continental jungle, on the Moon Trail, looking for the luminescent mushrooms in the dark. We will continue hiking to find the Victoria Regia, the world’s largest lotus flower. We will visit the Natutama Foundation and walk through a medicinal path to recognize the ‘ Chagra ‘, a unit of medicinal fruit and plant cultivation.
Attending to workshops on vegetable fabrics and natural inks and artisan galleries will be other of our unique experiences as well as dancing with the grandparents with songs in their mother tongue. We will enjoy the scenic tour along the Loretoyacú River and the Tarapoto Lakes, where we will see the gray and pink dolphins.
We will finalize this experience by touring LETICIA´s places of interest as well as enjoying a City Tour by taxi in Tabatinga, Brazil. We will return to Bogotá to put an end to this true Adventure of the Amazonian Lung.
