SATIPO, Peru, January 28, 2023 – Amazon Canoe Challenge, a unique event that combines the thrill of adventure with a meaningful impact, announced the debut of its first edition, a canoe race through the Amazon that prioritizes community impact and sustainable tourism. The challenge, set to take place on June 11-19, 2023, will see participants racing along the Ene & Tambo rivers of the Amazon in traditional canoes, while also raising funds and awareness for the Ashaninka indigenous communities who call the region home.
The race is the first event of its kind in the region. Participants will not only be able to experience the thrill of navigating the Amazon but also have the opportunity to learn about and support the Ashaninka communities that host teams along the river course. Each event supports the communities of the Ene & Tambo rivers through donations (financial & equipment), workshops and training, and the provision of local goods and services from the Ashaninka.
“The Amazon Canoe Challenge is a unique opportunity for adventure-seekers to experience the beauty of the Amazon while also giving back to the communities who call it home,” said Carlos Heine, Race Director of the Amazon Canoe Challenge. “We are thrilled to launch this event and extremely proud of the partnership we have developed with the communities to make it a reality. We hope to continue to be able to do our small part in protecting this incredible part of the Amazon”
