Canaima - Tour (3 days / 2 nights)

A tour to Canaima and the Angel Falls is one of the most spectacular happenings during a visit in Venezuela. Already the ca. 1 hour flight to Canaima via the Guri dam or the Gran Sabana are a breathtaking experience. The “Laguna of Canaima” in which five waterfalls flow is like an oase. In the Gran Sabana you will find nice sand beaches to relax and swim under a waterfall.
The “Carrao” is the connection to the Angel Fall. With its almost one thousand meters the Angel Fall is the highest waterfall in the world.



Day 1: In the morning we start by plane from Ciudad Bolivar. During our one hour flight we pass the immense Guri dam, the biggest dam in the world. In the distance we can already see the first table mountains. When coming closer and seeing the „Laguna of Canaima” we can already imagine what the next days are going to be like.
In a motorised log-canoe we cross the Laguna, passing the immense waterfalls and reaching the other side. After a short walk, we reach Salto Sapo where we have to go behind!!! (Do not forget your swimming cloth and a protection for your camera.) In the evening we go back to our camp, where the supper is already waiting for us.



Day 2: Today we start after breakfast with our log-canoe to go up the “Carrao“ and “Churun” river in order to reach Angel Falls. The ride takes between 5 and 6 hours, depending on if it is rain or dry season. If the water is low, it is possible that the men have to jump out of the boat and help to push the boat over the chutes.
We drive through a breathtaking landscape upstream to the Devil’s canyon. Thanks to the good work of our guides, we are now at the highest waterfall of the world. After a break we walk ca. 90 minutes to the plateau where we can see the Angel Fall really close. Breathtaking!!! A little bit further is a natural swimming pool where we can take a bath.
We sleep close to the Salto Angel in a camp of hammocks. In the camp each person can review the great impressions of the day and fall asleep while listening to the waterfall. The supper will be served directly at the river.


Day 3: After breakfast we go back to the Laguna of Canaima. You have enough time to take a bath in the Laguna or visit the Indian village before we fly back to Ciudad Bolivar.
