This is a 14 day Amazon adventure on the MV Victoria Amazonica immersing students in a region commonly referred to as the "lungs of the Earth". The courses travels through the Brazilian Amazon as students embark on an adventure that highlights the home of over one third of the worlds species of flora and fauna. Working with Indigenous leaders local to the area, students will experience the region via Stand Up Paddle Boards and native dugout canoes. They will fish for Peacock Bass and learn from the Indigenous people who will recount historical, environmental, wildlife, and cultural narratives. The Ice Axe Foundation has been leading this trip to the Rio Negro for over 10 years. It is one of the trips that has helped create a baseline of scholarly adventure that has evolved in the holistic, experiential, and expeditionary nature of Impact School curriculum.
