Description

This trip will take you deep into the Amazon, to pristine and distant places that remind us how magical and admirable nature is. In this ecosystem where the human race is just another species, we will visit true natural wonders that remain sheltered among a deep jungle, so vast that it extends to the entire horizon. We will get to know the ancestral ethnic groups of the Amazon and share with the Tucanos, Taibanos, Barasanos, Cuberos, Tatuyos, Besanos and Guananos who have coexisted with the endless jungle since time immemorial. 

More than a trip, this is a call and an invitation to participate in a magical and spontaneous event that is in danger of extinction and that is part of the intangible heritage of humanity; The Sacred Dance of the Yurupari. 

Formerly, this ceremony was kept in the jungle and hidden for visitors, but the Elders have opened their doors so that these dances remain engraved in our memory and that of humanity and thus be remembered forever.

Important information

This trip has a low comfort level. We will be in very remote and difficult to access places, so we have to be prepared. Although we will be sleeping under shelter, we will be moving around a lot and traveling light.  

For the accommodation everyone should bring their own hammock with mosquito net or, if you prefer, tent (without stakes) and mat and carry everything in your backpack. For this reason we recommend the Hammock to minimize the volume and weight that we will carry and reduce fatigue while walking. 

As for food, we will eat what the locals eat (based on fish, flour and vegetables). If you have a specific diet you will have to bring your own food. 

The water we will consume will always be boiled but if you are sensitive to water we advise you to bring water purification tablets or a filter. 

The last night we will sleep in a basic hotel in Mitú.
