On August 15, 1914, the SS Ancon made the first official ocean to ocean transit through the Panama Canal. This event, that soon proved to have changed the world forever, was possible thanks to the labor of more than 75,000 men and women who worked for 10 years facing unprecedented challenges. Since 1914, more than 1,000,000 vessels have transited through the waterway bringing commerce, cultures, and people from all corners of the world closer together. On June 26, 2016, the expansion of the Panama Canal was completed.
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 Oros New World fortifications and many untold story tales. This adventurous and extremely challenging 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 over to the Embera village at Madden Lake, crossing the watershed divide of the Boqueron river and reach the town of Portobelo on the Caribbean 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 the most part of the day due to multiple forking river hikes over large distances.
