CRUISE OF AMAZON

…3 MONTHS, 6500 KM, 2 MEN AND THE WORLD´S WILDEST JUNGLE…

AMAZON

PROJECT

VIKTOR AND JAKUB,
TWO ADVENTURERS,
ONE COMMON GOAL.
FLOAT DOWN THE AMAZON RIVER IN 3 MONTHS.

OUR GOAL IS TO FLOAT DOWN THE AMAZON RIVER IN THREE MONTHS. THE LENGTH OF THE ROUTE IS MORE THAN 6500 KM AND TO CONQUER IT WE WILL USE A TRADITIONAL WOODEN KANOE WITHOUT ENGINE, WHICH WE HAD MADE SPECIALLY FOR THIS TRIP.

Our trip will begin in the middle of July 2021. We start in Peru, in the town Nauta and the final destination is the river delta, just past the Brazilian town Macapa, where the river flows into the Atlantic Ocean. Before the trip itself we will be spending some time by the natives, which are the direct descendants of the aboriginal Peruvian Indians. In these couple of days, we will master the technique of hunting using bow, spear or just a knife in one of the most dangerous jungles of the world. We will also dust off the knowledge that we already have (from our last visit of Peru and Colombia) concerning the use of miraculous plants in different situations.

Our diet will consist of actually ‘’all you can eat’’ or all you can hunt. What does this mean? During the whole time of our expedition, we will consume only what the nature will offer us. Fresh piranhas or electrical eels, giant anacondas, versicolor insects but also tropical lianas will be on our menu every day. A hammock hanging from the tree in the lap of nature will be our luxury sleeping arrangement and a quality resting place after each demanding day.

Climber, diver, free-rider and ski alpinist, who likes to study plants and animals and their behavior. He lives his life on the edge filled with various activities, which are most of the time way out of the comfort zone. Free diving with sharks, survival in the jungle or climbing frozen mountains is for Jakub as usual as the days of the week. He visited countries like French Polynesia, Seychelles, Maldives, Cuba, Peru and many others. Currently he is trying to achieve one of his lifelong dreams – to climb 82 highest peaks in Europe, which are over 4000 meters above the sea level. So far, he managed to conquer 61 of them.

UP UNTIL THIS DAY WE MANAGED TO FINANCE ALL OF OUR TRIPS ON OUR OWN. BUT THE AMAZON RIVER WILL BE DIFFERENT AND TO PREPARE FOR IT PHYSICALLY, MENTALLY AND FINANCIALLY WILL NOT BE THAT EASY. WE CONSIDER THIS TO BE A UNIQUE PROJECT AND WE WANT TO GET THE MOST OUT OF IT. WE ARE PLANNING TO FILM GRANDIOSE VIDEOS, WHICH WILL BE LATER MADE INTO A FEATURE DOCUMENT AND ALSO TO CAPTURE PHOTOS OF BREATHTAKING MOMENTS FROM THE JUNGLE THAT CANNOT BE COMPARED TO ANYTHING ELSE IN THE WORLD. TO BE ABLE TO DO ALL OF THIS WE NEED A LOT OF EQUIPMENT AND THERE IS WHY WE ASK FOR YOUR HELP. DO YOU WANT TO EXPERIENCE AMAZONIA FROM OUR PERSPECTIVE TOGETHER WITH US?
