“You’ll probably never discover the best paths without getting lost.”
The approach is simple: you go together with a survival expert into the Amazon rainforest and do what is necessary to survive and thrive in the jungle. Typical activities of the Amazon survival tour include navigation through the rainforest, making a fire, kayak, hunting and gathering food. You can choose to stay on a single spot or trek through the forest during your survival trip.
The waters of the Amazon are quite easy to navigate, because the altitude differences in the rain forest are modest in general. This makes jungle tour very well doable for less experienced kayakers. Besides that, a motorized vessel with our guide is always close by in case something would happen. Before you depart, you will receive an instruction how to handle your kayak effectively.
The Amazon survival tour takes place in the Rio Urubu area. This river is a tributary to the Amazon and it is surrounded by dense forest with only a few inhabitants. The area is located about 200 km from Manaus. You will travel by bus and boat to the jungle lodge Rio Urubu that we have in that area. This is the starting point for your Amazon survival tour. If you have a preference for a different region or you would like to encounter certain types of animals, please let us know. We will see if another area is better suited for what you have in mind.
WHAT TO BRING?
We take care of the necessary equipment, including hammocks a machete and a first aid kit. You should bring light gear that you can easily carry and clothes that dry quickly and offer proper protection when going through rough terrain. If you have some handy survival tools that you are allowed to bring on a plane, just take them with you. Read our blog for a complete list of jungle gear you should take with you!
HUNT WITH A BLOWPIPE
Survival Activities Indigenous tribes traditionally use this technique to hunt for small animals. You learn how to make your own blowpipe and use it.
NAVIGATE THE AMAZON RAINFOREST
The jungle is dense at a lot of places, which makes navigating a difficult task. Our survival experts will teach you some clever tricks, so you can find your way out of the jungle and don’t keep walking around in circles.
FISH FOR FOOD
Fishing is a relative easy way to get food as the Amazon has an amazing variety of fish. You will learn different fishing styles, such as fishing with a net, spearfishing in the night and fishing piranhas with a rod and bait.
MAKE A FIRE
Fire making is an essential survival skill and not the easiest one. You will learn how to gather the right wood and material for your fire and how to ignite it (the hard part).
CREATE A SHELTER
Heavy rains can make you completely wet in minutes and causes you body temperature to drop significantly. This is one of the reasons why preparing a solid shelter is a good idea. You will build your own shelter from local materials together with our survival expert, so you keep dry and save from the animals.
