Peru Jungle Expedition and Desert Scientific Exploration

Peru Jungle Expedition and Desert Scientific Exploration

Duration: 2-3 weeks

Peru is a mystical and magical place steeped in rich culture and sometimes bloody history; it has everything from the deep impenetrable Amazon jungle and its astonishing wildlife, to some of the highest and most impressive mountains in the world. It also has deep endless forbidding deserts that seem empty and impassable… but not for Polaris Outdoor. This may be one of the most enriching expeditions a person could ever complete.

This expedition is especially special… In partnership with the Natural History Museum of Lima we offer participants the unique opportunity to go to the seemingly impassable desert regions to look for buried treasure in the form of ancient fossil remains of giant whales and the largest carnivore to ever have been discovered! Key archaeological sites are also yet to be discovered.
