The Amazon or Ecuadorian jungle is a place that is very hard to describe with words. Millions of different species product of a billion years of evolution, embracing sounds of birds, various smells, colors and texture adaptations that can be confused with the scenery. To get to the heart of this beauty, we will drive, walk and ride a boat. Fruits, plants and animals are unique to this place, and during our very long walks with our local guides, we will discover that this place is a huge natural pharmacy.
In the Jungle we will stay with the family of the Shaman Agustin Grefa, where we will have our “limpia” with Ayahuasca.
Day 1: (Quito)
Arrival to Quito. Welcome cocktail and dinner.
Day 2: (Napo River)
The adventure starts today, with our departure towards the exciting Amazon!!! To get there we will have to cross the Andes mountain range and descend towards the rainforest. On our arrival, we’ll walk to the Napo River to enjoy our first sunset at the jungle.
Day 3: (Walk towards the Shaman's House)
After a relaxing sleep surrounded by the rainforest sounds, we will cross the Napo river, and we will walk almost 4 hours along the primary forest in order to get to the community of the Shaman.
Day 4: (Trekking inside the primary rainforest / Handicrafts)
Today we will wake up and after a fruity breakfast we will visit the Rio Blanco Waterfall. On the way we will learn about all the medicinal plants that are naturally found on the Jungle. If somebody is ill, then we will probably find a plant that will heal us. In the afternoon we will learn how to make handcrafts.
Day 5: (Shamanic night / limpia)
In the morning we will have a canoe trip along the Rio Blanco and in the afternoon we will prepare ourselves for SHAMANIC NIGHT. We will learn about the “medicinal plants”, the different types, the preparation and the uses. In the night, those who are prepared will experience this ceremony which will end with a “limpia” of each of us.
Day 6: (Chocolate preparation / Farewell cultural night)
In the morning we will have a talk with the Shaman, where he will explain us individually the visions that we had the previous day at the Shamanic night. In the afternoon we will prepare chocolate with the cacao fruits recollected from the backyard. In the night we will say goodbye to the jungle and to the community, at the Cultural Night.
Day 7: (Night tour to Colonial Quito)
Today we’ll start heading back to Quito. During the night we will do a guided tour around the colonial center and have a farewell dinner at one of the typical colonial neighborhoods of Quito.
Day 8: (End of the tour)
End of the tour. After breakfast, some will be driven to the airport to go back home and some will get ready for the incredible Galapagos Islands or the Otavalo & Inca Trail Journey.
