Ascend of South America 2018. Expedition
Join us for this once in a lifetime journey
During the course of the expedition, we will travel through four countries: Argentina, Paraguay, Bolivia and Brazil. Our team will navigate 7000 km from the Delta of the Parana River in Argentina, Buenos Aires to the Amazon River City of Manaus on three 13ft. inflatable boats with outboard engines, and capture as much of the unique natural landscape, flora and fauna as possible.
We envisage the duration of the expedition to be 75 days, this being September, October and part of November 2018, and are open to splitting this into two parts of 35 day or four parts of 17 day , according to the needs and expectations of the participants.
Section 1: Buenos Aires Argentina – Asuncion Paraguay
(04/09/2018 – 21/09/2018) 18 days: 1550 km.
The Delta of the Parana River is a limitless source of untouched nature. Attractions along the Parana River and the Tigre Delta include fine examples of colonial architecture, wooden bridges, green islands.
Amazing views of paradise can be experienced and enjoyed cruising on the Paraguay river. The Paraguay River is a major natural asset of Paraguay that feeds it economy and natural ecosystem as the second largest river of the RÃo de la Plata watershed.
Section 2: Asuncion, Paraguay, – Caseres, Mato Grosso, Brazil
(21/09/2018 – 09/10/2018) 19 days: 1755 km.
The Pantanal, the worlds largest wetland is worldwide known by its great diversity and concentration of flora and fauna. The Pantanal is considered the cradle of a great variety of animal species, from birds to reptiles and is a unique place in the world, with plentiful aquatic resources and vegetation. These characteristics give the Pantanal some important titles like the Third Largest Biosphere Reserve of the World and Natural Patrimony of Humankind (UNESCO). Wildlife in its most primitive form and men with their cattle farms share the same space. Along with the Amazon, the Pantanal is considered an example of the best of Brazil – untouched nature, ready to be seen and appreciated by those willing to treat themselves to this gift. It is in fact an amazing mixture of ecosystems with different landscapes such as fields, floodplains and forests that may resemble the Amazonian Forest.
Section 3: Caseres, Mato Grosso, Brazil – Gujara Mirim, Brazil
(09/10/2018 – 25/10/2018) 17 days: 1705 km.
Rondonia is a state in the western Amazon Basin of Brazil. Rondonia borders Bolivia to its west and south; and the Brazilian states of Mato Grosso to its east. Prior to 1900, the region was occupied mainly by indigenous groups. The Amazon is itself a place of nearly mythical status. Our Expedition will lead us on the rivers Guapore, Mamore and Madeira to the Amazon River. On a river whose size is legendary, it’s actually the little things that make it special. Give it some time, forget your expectations, and the Amazon cannot fail to impress.
Section 4, Gujara Mirim, Brazil – Manaus Brazil
(25/10/2018 – 08/11/2018) 15 days: 1665 km.
Amazonas, largest state of Brazil, situated in the northwestern part of the country. Despite its size, it is one of the most thinly populated. The Amazon is itself a place of nearly mythical status. Our expedition will lead us on the rivers Guapore, Mamore and Madeira to the Amazon River. On a river whose size is legendary, it’s actually the little things that make it special. Give it some time, forget your expectations, and the Amazon cannot fail to impress. Amazonas occupies the greater part of the tropical forest zone of the Amazon River basin.
Notes on the sections:
*Sections 1 and 2 (wetlands) will be an adventure trip with great challenges in a rather easier environment. In any case, it will be for folks with the heart on the right place
*The Amazons Sections 3 and 4 will be much more challenging and designed for people who already have a great outdoor experience and who also accept the landscape and weather conditions and circumstances!
*Important: You should also have a certain time flexibility on all sections
The cost of each section will be more or less: €2500.- ex VAT. (It is a non-profit trip, we are sharing the expenses.)
If you are interested please contact me and tell me which sections you would join. Space is limited!
There are still many questions to be answered about the expedition logistics, but we are working fully on it and hope that you can also help to make this dream project real. We are in also in planning with NGOs and a Film- and TV-production company, to give the expedition an even more interesting aspect.
Thanks in advance for your quick respond.
With best regards.
