THE AYAHUASCA AND KAMBO  JOURNEY 5D/4N, it is undoubtedly the most interesting introduction experience offered for a complete and short spiritual retreat of ancestral Amazonian shamanism, and like many of our jungle crossings trips, it is very much in our nomadic style.

During this journey our team will plunge visitors into the depths of the Amazon jungle. At daylight we will carry out with our usual survival activities, explorations of wildlife, and Kambo ceremonies, at night all of our Ayahuasca ceremonies will take place in different locations as we progressively advance with our journey through the jungle, same with the Rapé and Sananga sessions, we’ll be camping in safe and enigmatic places that have a very special energy field, and most importantly connected with mother nature.

Our journeys are designed mainly to give all first-time and experienced visitors, a direct and profound connection with their inner-selves and everything natural around them, a legitimate introduction and travel experience, focused on the physical, mental and spiritual healing and self encounter, where the idea is like the rest of our shamanic and exploration expeditions, to clearly show our visitors the origins, secrets and the right step by step process on how the preparation of the Ayahuasca medicinal brew is done, steps in the treatments with the Kambo medicine, and to discover the purpose of all that exists around us. Experiences like this we believe all authentic adventurer deserves from beginning to end.

Also, during this journey, visitors will have the privilege of making an Amazonian crossing trip, navigating a minimum of 5 rivers (Maranon, Ucayali, Yarapa, Tahuayo and the Mighty Amazon River at the end), finally arriving in Iquitos along a path different from where it started.
