A journey into the beauty and diversity of Ecuador provides not only a connection to nature and indigenous culture but also into how we can create a life of adventure and inventure from start to finish.
While the ‘gap year’ tradition opens the minds and hearts of high school grads as they transition between high school and college, nothing currently exists to assist those of us stepping out of the ‘Age of Ambition’ – work, parenting and daily grind into the ‘Age of Transcendence’ – a joyful rediscovery of freedom, independence and opportunity.
Into Thin Hair Adventures™ serves the ‘fit and fifty plus’ demographic that seeks to re-fire and inspire…not just retire.
A fourteen day trip to Ecuador – the hidden jewel of South America – offers an opportunity to explore the most biologically diverse country on the planet in the company of like-minded adventurers. Our journey takes us from the Andes mountains to Amazon jungles – hiking through alpine meadows and lakes, mountain biking at the foot of glaciers, rafting through tropical forests, photographing exotic wildlife and discovering hot springs and hidden waterfalls along the way.
A culturally oriented expedition, our itinerary features visits with indigenous communities in the high Andes and seldom visited jungle tribes in the Amazon headwaters … including optional participation in a traditional, over-night healing ceremonies deep in the rainforest with the Shuar elders.
Along with exploring one of the most beautiful, interesting and diverse places on the planet… our objective will be – through facilitated discussions and informal seminars – to re-discover just how beautiful, interesting and diverse our own lives can become.
