At Envago, we’re all for adventure at every level, from easy to moderate to full on extreme! And the adventures on offer from our new planner Green Wild Amazon Adventures could only be classified as extreme on every level. We look at the awesome Green Wild Adventures available this week on Envago app.
12 Day Survivor
Your location: the Amazon River, Peru. Your mission: to survive 12 days in the jungle! Heading by boat along the Amazon with very little by way of provisions to sustain you, you’ll have to learn the rules of the jungle to make it through. First up, finding shelter and no, we don’t mean finding the nearest hotel but actually building a shelter from scratch using materials found in the natural environment! Then it’s finding fresh drinking water and learning how to find and prepare your own food. In the jungle you’ve got to be careful of which plants and fruits are safe and which are poisonous, and in this 12 day survivor experience you’ll learn all this and more. From surveying your surroundings to finding sources of communication, making weapons and assisting injured people. One thing is for sure, this adventure will be unlike any you’ve ever experienced!
4 Day Amazon Expedition
Experience a real Amazon expedition with an immersive four day adventure in the jungle! With a four to five hour boat ride along the Amazon, you’ll reach the jungle where you’ll set up camp. After dinner comes the best bit of all- a night time cruise by canoe along the Amazon spotting alligators, nocturnal birds and monkeys with your every sense enlivened by the unique sounds of the jungle. Day two dawns with an early morning bird watching excursion and a piranha fishing trip followed by swimming with the grey and pink dolphins of the Amazon. This time, your night time excursion will be in search of tarantulas, scorpions and snakes! Day three and you’ll be heading even deeper into the jungle, learning about different varieties of medicinal, poisonous and hallucinogenic plants along with a visit to a river village to see how the native people prosper in this inhospitable environment.
Perhaps the most extreme of all the adventures we offer from Green Wild Amazon, this trip takes you deeper than ever into the Amazon, home to the native hunter and away from the tourist trail. It is here, several days of trekking later, that you will find the heartland of the mighty anaconda. And it is here, in these remote and hidden areas that the anaconda thrives. You will explore lakes and swamps, brooks and creeks and with patience, silence and time the anaconda emerges! Learning native techniques as well as natural paints, saps and inks you will become un-seen, un-heard and un-noticeable, able to observe the anaconda in its natural environment.
