Aaron Chervenak & Gareth Jones are crossing Brazil from north to south on a historical ‘human-powered’ journey of over 9000km (5500 miles).
The expedition starts in August 2012 at Monte Caburaí in the remote Amazonian region where Brazil borders Venezuela and Guyana. It ends at Chuí on the border with Uruguay.
After travelling through the Amazon basin by canoe, they will hike out across the scorched Caatinga hinterlands and on down thousands of miles of tropical coastline.
Brazil 9000 will present an unprecedented portrait of Brazil and the Brazilians; visiting indigenous territories, deforested ranch lands, industrial ports, deserted beaches, fishing villages, pristine jungle and huge metropolises.
