About this trip

  The Pachamama Alliance EXTENDED Immersion is a journey designed for those that want to spend more time in the Amazon with our indigenous brothers and sisters. This journey requires more physical stamina than our traditional journey as we will be moving longer distances via canoe and on foot in the elements to connect with multiple Achuar and Sapara communities.  It is a rare privilege to have a profound immersion with intact Indigenous people. You will be invited into their ancestral culture, providing direct experience to learn from an uninterrupted lineage of wisdom amongst the vibrant forest. This remote environment becomes curiously familiar as it awakens an ancient memory, stored in our very DNA, of a natural and harmonious way of living and being.

You will be welcomed at Indigenous-owned lodges and villages that offer the unique opportunity to engage in intimate conversations and activities such as interpretive rainforest hikes, river trips in canoes and kayaks, cultural practices and traditions, and shamanic ceremonies.

Your Guides

 Each Journey is skillfully curated by trained leaders and expert guides on the ground.

  • Our Journey Leaders are volunteers who have experience as a Journey participant and have gone through an extensive leadership training to effectively hold a safe and dynamic space for you on your Journey.
  • Our Ecuadorian guides have been guiding for decades and are dedicated to supporting the rainforest and Indigenous people. Their knowledge, understanding, trust, and relationships are an invaluable part of the Journeys experience.
