Important Notice!

Due to the high volume of upcoming expeditions our high season is completely full between December of 2021 and June of 2022. We are unable to take any more bookings or schedule new multi-day treks outside the ones shown on our DATES page. On those treks with the label “SPACES AVAILABLE” we still have room for one or two more participants, but those are filling up fast.   Dates not shown on the calendar are likely full with private expeditions, overseas travel, or down time, so the dates that we don’t advertise are therefore unavailable as well. We hope to be open to new bookings for July of 2022.  The Hike & Paddle Chagres River and H & P Camino de Cruces day trips are relatively easy to organize and can happen at any time provided we’re not busy leading longer expeditions. In any case we encourage you to contact us several weeks in advance if you’re interested in these day trips. Many thanks!

Darien Gap Expedition

5 days / 4 nights   or    14 days / 13 nights


Explore the inside of one of Central America’s most fabled regions, the Darien. With its exuberant rainforests, endless meandering rivers, and its local people, here is an expedition of a lifetime. One of the best ways to experience the Darien is by joining our custom trips. Please enquire about the multiple possibilities. For example, one of our journeys begins with a commercial flight out of Panama City to the village of Sambu.
A dugout canoe then takes the expedition members to Pavarandó, a small hamlet on the shores of the upper Sambu River. From this point on we commence the 6 day tramp southbound through the jungle, crossing rivers and climbing mountains until we reach the head waters of Piñas River. We then descend its course to the coastal town of Bahía Piñas, on the Pacific Ocean; just in time to enjoy that cold beer we’ve been longing for all these days. Check out this short clip from one of our last treks in the Darien.
