Det skal I lave

We will sail on canoe through the most conserved channels of Xochimilco wetland. During the tour, we will tell you about the history of the place and its importance to the sustainability of Mexico City. In your way, you will recognize the biological richness like birds, snakes, frogs and plants. We will arrive at a chinampa where you can get your hands dirty experiencing the ancestral technique of cultivation and discovering why it is considered a world heritage. Also, you will get involve in the diary activities in the chinampa like crop irrigation, harvest or seeding. Before going back to land, you will have time to relax and enjoy the peace of the place. This is a cultural tour that helps to promote the community development.

We are a bunch of biologists and farmers that have been working in Xochimilco's wetland for 10 years. Armando and Maya arrived to the site thanks to their posgraduate projects, which involved restoration of axolotl populations on refuges, while Manuel and Paco get involved in Humedalia at our environmental education program. We all fell in love with wetland cultural and biological charming, from the ancestral chinampas to the beatiful migratory birds, and now we are part of local community. The team have been working to show the magic of this place to all ages people and nationalities, so they can be embassadors of Xochimilco's conservation efforts all around the world. We are only the face of a big team of local farmers and young researchers that are commited to wetlands conservation.

Her skal du være

Xochimilco wetland is immersed inside Mexico City, you won't believe that you will be just 10 minutes from the stress of civilization. The place is a natural protected area and is the remnant of the Great Mexico Lake, where some aspects of one of the most importants prehispanic cultures still survive.

This was a great tour! Great tour guide from a great organization. It was really nice to see the ecology rather than be on a party boat. We loved this tour!

My partner and I had a tour with Paco and Daniel today. Excellent story-telling, and great knowledge of flora and fauna. This is the first experience I would recommend to friends visiting Mexico City. Very culturally significant, and a great way to get out of the crowded city.

This is one of the highlights from my trip to Mexico City. Definitely the best way to learn about the Xochimilco area and its history. Definitely the best way to explore this area without being overwhelmed by the busyness of other traditional tours of the area. Paco, my host was incredibly friendly and passionate about this tour. We snacked on traditional treats and food, toured the farm and learned so much.

I couldn’t say enough about what a great experience this was! Pack was so kind and such a wealth of knowledge - of both the history of Xochimilco and of sustainable agriculture. The tour is tailored to your specific interests and all the hosts have incredible hospitality! Would highly recommend!

Cannot recommend this experience enough! It was a magical experience to canoe through the Chimampas and get to view the natural wildlife of the area. This is a once in a lifetime experience of Xochimilco and far different from any other tour available. Learning about the history and culture of the region and hearing about the indigenous farming techniques used on the farm was amazing. Both hosts were extremely knowledgable, kind, and full of great stories. The meal made with items grown on the farm was delicious! I would definitely go on this tour again next time I visit.

Get off the beaten path from the party boats and paddle deep into these ancient chiampas with a local biologist and organic farmer as a guide. The meal prepared at the farm was delicious and thoughtful. We saw a lot of wildlife and unique birds, to include a bird of prey. Highly recommend this as an ecological alternative to seeing this area if you would like to learn more about how the farmers live and produce on these islands and to intimately experience the more peaceful areas away from the crowds. Highly recommended tour!
