A JUNGLE EXPERIENCE
Explore the last remaining frontier - The Darien. Rarely seen by outsiders, the Darien region has been testing man since the dawn of time. Bordering Panama and Columbia, its the impossible gap in the Panamerican Highway. Full of mysticism and history, this is an expericnce like no other!
Enjoy 8 days, 7 nights deep in some of the most remote jungle on Earth, and come out with insane bragging rights!
With its exuberant rainforests, endless meandering rivers, and its local people, here is the expedition of your lifetime.
Rated by many as 'Notorious,' 'An impossible place to be,' and 'Dangerous,' Ukaliq Wilderness has worked hard to open this route to you.
An epic Journey like no other!
Your journey begins with a commercial flight out of Panama City to the village of Sambu.
A dugout canoe then takes the expedition members to Pavarandó, a small hamlet on the shores of the upper Sambu River. From this point on we commence the 6 day tramp southbound through the jungle, crossing rivers and climbing mountains until we reach the head waters of Piñas River. We then descend from the mountains to the coastal town of Bahía Piñas, on the Pacific Ocean; just in time to enjoy that cold beer we’ve been longing for all these days.
Meet local indigenous people, experience their existence. See and touch ancient petroglyphs.
No previous experience is required for this expedition although, being reasonably fit and abe to carry a pack for mutiple days is a must. Although we use local indigeonous porters to help carry the load, it helps that you can perservere.
