Explore The Amazon By Kayak On A New Adventure Tour By Tofino Expeditions
Explore the exotic wildlife and culture of the Amazon on this innovative new tour
Countless books detail how challenging Amazon exploration can be, but Tofino Expeditions has created an Amazon kayaking trip that combines unprecedented accessibility with a genuine spirit of adventure. Using tropical expedition sea kayaks and led by both naturalist and aboriginal guides, guests paddle the river systems of the Ecuadorian Amazon around the diverse Yasuni National Park. Kayaks are the ideal craft for the exploration of the flooded forest and guests experience the thrill of seeing exotic wildlife, flora and fauna, and wild landscapes up close and from a truly unique vantage point.
This region of the Amazon is thought to have been a Pleistocene Refuge, an area where numerous species survived extinction during periods of dramatic climatic change. This in part explains the exceptional richness and diversity of this area of the Amazon basin. Each day participants explore a new and fascinating aspect this supremely unique ecosystem. The adventure takes passengers through the subtle transitions zones between the black water and white water ecosystems. Guests are led by true jungle experts that can identify the numerous plants and creatures encountered and can explain the fascinating relationships that make up the ongoing drama of life in the Amazon.
At the end of each day’s exploration, travelers return by motorized dugout canoe to the comforts of one of the three deluxe jungle lodges that make up the accommodations on this trip. There will be time to have hot shower, get a cold drink, and discuss the day’s highlights before sitting down to dinner that blends local ingredients into international cuisine. Linking these jungle lodges together on this trip gives visitors unparalleled logistical support and offers access to the unique features of each of the facilities including a truly remarkable canopy walkway. Along with kayaking, guests have an opportunity to explore the forest in its entirety--from the jungle floor to the canopy--all with expert interpretation.
