Peruvian Amazon Expedition
A unique opportunity to experience the biodiversity, hidden valleys, jungle mountains and cloud forest of the Amazon. The expedition will take you deep into the Peruvian jungle and into the Amazon basin to trek and study the biodiversity of the area while documenting your experience through creative media projects. By day you will cut your way through the untouched jungle and by night you will camp to the sounds of its wildlife.
Working in partnership with the crees foundation, you will be involved in their conservation and sustainability studies to help further our understanding of the Amazon through scientific fieldwork. Surveying wild monkeys, birds, snakes, butterflies and a huge array of reptiles. You will also have the opportunity to work on innovative sustainability projects in the village of Salvación that are helping to build sustainable livelihoods, enabling families to live prosperous and healthy lives without destroying their rainforest home.
All of our expeditions are designed to take you out of your comfort zone in a challenging yet safe environment, with a real focus on the skills and personal development you will gain from the experience.

About British Exploring
British Exploring are a youth development charity that runs expeditions with a focus on science, media and adventure to some of the world’s most remote locations for young people aged 16-25.
British Exploring is a pioneering youth development charity, which develops resilience and mental toughness, leadership, confidence, teamwork and a range of outdoor and science skills in young people aged 14 to 25 through challenging expeditions to wild, remote overseas locations. It was founded in 1932 during another period of austerity by Surgeon Commander George Murray Levick who participated in Captain Scott’s ill-fated expedition to the South Pole.
British Exploring is the only organisation in the UK delivering permanently transformative, intensive learning experiences through challenging overseas expeditions. 80 years of taking young people into remote wildernesses has enabled us to develop a robust youth development model. This works particularly well for young people lacking strong role models, exhibiting high-risk behaviours or low self-esteem. In recent years we have specifically refined our model to meet such needs – and would like to be more inclusive in future, including in relation to physical disability.
Our unique approach enables young people from all backgrounds to recognise, unlock and act on their individual potential through exploration - supported by teams of exceptional leaders acting as role models - and is transformational for all participants - leaders as well as explorers - and for the wider communities around participants. Society therefore benefits considerably, over many years, from the impact of what we do.
