Join Amazon Watch on an Amazon rainforest adventure that will enrich your life!
Starting from historic Quito, Ecuador, this trip will be led by Atossa Soltani, Amazon Watch founder and executive director - a remarkable opportunity to travel and share this amazing adventure with someone who understands all of this from the inside out. You'll learn from key staff and partners about the history of the struggle to protect the Amazon and support the rights of indigenous peoples who call the Amazon home. Traveling overland, by air and by water, you will see sights that few will ever have the opportunity to see.
We'll take you into the heart of the devastation wrought by oil companies who sought profits over people and the environment, getting a first hand look on our Toxic Tour. We'll go to the Yasuní EcoLodge in the heart of the Yasuní National Park where we and our partners are working to keep the oil in the ground. We'll experience the beauty and wonder of pristine rainforest with activities led by local guides, with comfortable accommodations and delicious meals. Then it's off by chartered plane to Sarayaku, home of the Children of the Jaguar where we'll be their honored guests, learning about this Kichwa community in a vast, living rainforest. Sarayaku stood up to Big Oil and the government and won their case with our support, establishing once and for all their rights to self-determination and a healthy environment.
This is a journey without parallel, taking you safely to the heart of Ecuador's Amazon and providing everything necessary to learn, discover and grow from the experience.
Trip cost: $3500 including domestic flight from Quito to Lago and chartered flights to Sarayaku and transport to and from Yasuní, accommodation and meals.
