Immerse yourself in the Peruvian Amazon

Our experience in the Amazon has allowed us to approach and learn from the immense wisdom of the forest and its people. This wisdom and life experience is what we want to share with you.

Our programs are oriented to those who want to feel and experience life in the Peruvian Amazon in a different way. We invite you not only to immerse yourself, but come and leave your own footprint.

Depending on your needs or qualifications, you can be part of our Trainee or Volunteer Program. If you have any question, please contact: yann@chaikuni.org
