Visit two of the icons of Venezuela in one trip. Fly in a small plane over the tepuis (table top mountains) they total 116 in the park and imagine yourself retracing the steps of  Sir Arthur Conan Doyle in his famous book (and film) “The Lost World”.  A magical place full of mystical energy and legends….

Visit Canaima lagoon with its seven waterfalls gushing into it and walk behind one of them – a raw roaring curtain of water – an absolute adrenaline rush and an experience not to be missed. Take a curiara, motorized dugout canoe, on the rain forest lined Carrao River to Devils Canyon and then the Churun River to Angel Falls. It’s easy to imagine why the Pemón never looked up at the spirits in the rocks in fear of reprisal in the early days; especially at the rock formation they call “The Devils Horns”. Your hammock awaits right in front of the falls a short hike away.

Combine this soft trek with an active trekking experience, a six day trek to the top of the tepui that inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s novel the “Lost World” itself, Roraima, bordering Venezuela, Brazil and Guyana. An incredible experience and one of the most popular tours in our portfolio – the views from the tabletop are simply incredible, couple this with the indigenous flora and fauna it makes this a once in a life time experience.
