We made this historic crossing in July 2012. Ask us about it!
A rare opportunity to walk from one side of Panama to the other in one week.
If the mossy river rocks, the gurgling translucent waters and the majestic, ancient trees could talk, they would tell epic stories of long mule trains hauling the King's gold, of dashing incursions by pirates against Castilla de Oro’s New World fortifications and many untold story tales. This adventurous and extremely challening trekking expedition led by the country's most experienced trekking guide Rick Morales and operated together with his Jungle Treks expert team takes you from Historic Panama City (1) over to the Embera village at Madden Lake (2), crossing the watershed divide of the Boqueron river (3) and reach the town of Portobelo on the Caribbean (4) from where you go on a scenery ride on the Panama Railway back to Panama City. Prepare yourself not only mentally, but also physically: 2 trekking poles are mandatory; well broken in hiking boots provide best foot comfort for the grounds & rivers you will encounter; and expect to be wet for most part of the day due to multiple foarking river hikes over large distances. (Note: final schedule will be determined according to conditions, weather, etc)
