This tour is about peace and tranquility, and about getting reconnected with nature.
Our Rainforest Expedition boat will take you and the kayaks to a very secluded part of Gatun Lake, where you will be able to kayak through pristine Tropical forest.
A wildlife guide will accompany you, and as you make your way through a maze of inlets and islands, we will identify various plant and animal species, and share insights into how those species all interconnect to ensure a healthy biodiverse system.
