How was UIKA born?
WYK of the kambeba indigenous language, adopted by us as UIKA, means traveler, a border dweller, who lives in a place where he can see both worlds but looks into the unknown. It is an unconventional traveler.
UIKA was baptized by a young man from a Kambeba indigenous community called Muipiruata on the Cuieiras River, about 60 km from Manaus during a visit to the community.
In 2016, Camila Matos, who is the founder of UIKA, and her friends from X - Lab Manaus go on various volunteer trips around Amazon and find out many amazing destinations, people and stories. And during a conversation with one of your friends comes up with some ideas for a local travel and tourism agency.
Two years later, UIKA, a producer of AMAzonic experiences for unconventional travelers, was born. Where the protagonism of experiences that go from the city to the forest, are only realized by local entrepreneurs. With the purpose of supporting and valuing the local creative economy involved in tourism in AMAzônia and also in enabling the positive social, economic and environmental impact in the destinations where we operate.
