angel falls & Roraima - The Lost world expedition

Angel Falls, Roraima (14 days)

Canaima National Park

Experience the “Lost World of Venezuela”, comprising two unique tabletop mountains, Auyántepui and Roraima (the latter will require trekking), both will impress with rock formations millions of years old. The trek to Roraima can take six days but one can also spend an extra day should the group agree.

These destinations are two icons of Venezuela, spectacular waterfalls, pristine rainforests, indigenous communities (Pemón), and the unique summit of Roraima – quite an adventure in store.

You could also terminate this adventure by adding another destination, the Orinoco Delta, an extra two days required. The Delta is teeming with wildlife and the Warao indigenous tribe live there.

Angel Falls is the tallest waterfall in the world and a must visit for any adventure traveller, it is one of the eight wonders of the world. Fly to Canaima, Canaima National Park and take to the river to visit Angel Falls, flanked by spectacular table top mountains and dense rainforest.
