About this trip

It is time to reconnect with Nature. In a time when fifty percent of people across the world live in cities, we are further and further distanced from the ecosystems and wild places we come from. Where better to rekindle old connections than a place with the greatest array of life on earth: the Amazon Rainforest. At a remote research station, participants will be immersed in pristine forest, a biological reservoir of unmatched diversity, beauty and of course, ADVENTURE! 


The Las Piedras watershed is located in the sacred headwaters of the Amazon Basin, the system that contains 1/5 of our planet’s fresh water, produces 1/5 of global oxygen, sequesters a substantial amount of the world’s carbon, and is home to more biodiversity and threatened cultures than anywhere else on earth. Here you will have access to places no one has ever set foot. Where the quiet thrumming of the forest is a roar of life. The Amazon is also home to trees, streams, waterfalls, wildlife, and more stars in the sky than you have ever seen before! It is in this incredible, life-altering abundance that you will have the chance to become immersed in nature at a level rarely felt.

It was the most amazing trip . A great educational trip and you could see the passion to save the Amazon from the chef to our guides. The beauty and sounds of the rain Forrest are like non other . It brought all your senes to a new upper level . I was so glad I was able to do this and meet other new friends in our group by the end they became part of your family. I highly recommend this trip!!!

Amazing trip! Once in a life time opportunity to visit a Primary Rain Forest and view the various plants and animals that live there. We saw numerous monkeys, macaws, frogs and spiders. We went fishing for piranha and even caught a 10 foot Anaconda (which we released into a near by lake). Our guides (Ian & Empi) were extremely knowledgeable, taking their time to point out various plants and animals along the way. You really get a sense of their deep connection with the area and their desire to conserve and protect. Definitely would recommend. It's a rare opportunity to experience the rain forest this up close and personal.
