Brazil Custom Trek 2020: Amazon Jungle

OUR EXPEDITIONS   >  
BRAZIL CUSTOM TREK 2020
Brazil Trek


The expedition begins in Recife, the capital of the state of Pernambuco, and one of the largest and most important cities on the northeastern coast of Brazil. Famous for its beautiful beaches, many rivers, small islands and over 50 bridges in the city center, it is often called the "Brazilian Venice". Recife will be a great starting point for this adventure where we will work to improve the lives of children from a local children's home.



Our Purpose

Our group of Trekkers will spend 3 days with the children from a local children's home in Recife. We will spend time getting to know the children, playing games, improving their home, taking them on a field trip. and celebrating our time together with food, music, and dancing.

Our Adventure

After we complete our work in Recife we will fly to Manaus where our 4-day jungle adventure begins. We will travel by van and then boat to the confluence of two of the world’s greatest rivers, the Rio Negro and the Amazon. We will then continue on to our accommodations for the next 3 nights in the heart of the jungle, at Juma lodge where we will explore the river by canoe, take a jungle walk to learn about the native plants and animals, fish for piranha and other local fish, swim with porpoises, and have plenty of time to just relax on hammocks listening to the sounds of the jungle.

Please contact Tricia Donaldson, Director of Operations, for more information.
