Begin the tour with a visit to the three borders (Colombia, Brazil, Peru) and the beautiful Victoria Regia Nature Reserve. We will sail down the Amazon River observing grey and pink dolphins and you will have the opportunity to get to know this region around Leticia full of biodiversity.

On the second day, you will start your adventure to the Calderon River as the spectacular destination of this great trip, providing the most adventurous experience for those who are willing to discover the real Amazon rainforest. Deep jungle treks that uncover not only the most beautiful flora and fauna, but also all the stories and knowledge that local guides have to share with visitors and the most amazing survival skills for jungle explorers.

We would like to point out that the jungle will create new challenges for all of us! Be aware of these challenges and trust our local guides. They care about the personal well-being of each individual and the group. Tour elements can therefore be shifted and adjusted individually during the trip with our guides.

This project is based on 4 pillars that explicitly promise a radical change towards a real tourist sustainability.

1. Wild species are visited only in their natural environment, not exposing them to direct contact with humans to avoid the vulnerability and disrespect through the abuse of technology and ‘animal selfie’.

2. The local guides or ‘baquianos’ are mainly former hunters and former hunters who have decided to release their shotgun to tie a photographic camera and become image hunters in the jungle, promoting thus the respect to the natural environment visited by the tourists.

3. Visits to the indigenous settlements are carried out respecting a tolerable loading capacity and that does not alter the form of life of these small communities. Visitors learn how they live today in Amazonas by carrying out the same activities accompanied by local guides and avoiding cultural exploitation in the region.

4. Regional gastronomy is the main source of economic income for peasants and indigenous people in the Amazon. To achieve touristic sustainability, it is necessary to promote regional products only in the menu offered to tourists who come to visit a place full of biodiversity, where we can find hundreds of species and fruits that allow to provide an authentic experience in this aspect, reducing the environmental impact of each visit and opening new gastronomic fusion markets for responsible eco visitors in search of vegan, vegetarian and regional options.

 

At the request of the visitors it is possible to spend the nights in cabins or camping in the jungle.

The menu of meals may vary according to the season and the preferences of the visitors. The guide service is provided by local guides from the region.
