Short Description

Do you what it takes to tackle the Amazon Challenge? Fancy competing in our own version of the indigenous olympics? Or how about rubbing shoulders with some pink dolphins? Keen to dodge piranhas as you paddle downstream? Do you often have vivid dreams about hammocks? Do you like to take your adventure with a spoonful of ‘oomph’? If you answered ‘yes’ to all of the above, it sounds like you were born for the Amazon Challenge. Our Amazon Rainforest Challenge is the ultimate bucket list adventure holiday in South America.

Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.

Anthony Bourdain once said the following "Travel isn’t always pretty. It isn’t always comfortable. Sometimes it hurts, it even breaks your heart. But that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, on your consciousness, on your heart, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind." This accurately (and far more eloquently) describes how a trip with Julian and his company, Large Minority Travel, will leave you feeling. I've taken two trips with LM, Lanka Challenge Southern Route and India Rickshaw Challenge. Large Minority has completely changed the way I like to travel and it will do the same for you should you decide to go on one of their adventures. It is both responsible and meaningful travel. It will push you out of your comfort zone. You will: grow as a person, laugh, get frustrated, get lost, try things you never thought you would and you may even cry, the good kind of course. You will see unrivaled beauty and things that may break your heart. You will drink, dance, and stare at the stars. You may even catch a glimpse of an elephant. You will find your tribe and you will make friends for life. You will help local economies, schools, children, and villages. You WILL have the most epic vacation you've ever had and will come back for more. Cambo Challenge 2019? Family Tukster will be there. Will you?
