Day 1. Canaima National Park

The Angel Falls are located deeply inside Canaima National Park. Your tour begins in the Canaima Lagoon area, from which you can see a group of four different cascades known as Hacha, Wadaima, Ucaima and Golondrina.
After a tasty lunch at a local indigenous village you will be taken across the lagoon and walk along the pink sand banks and up, through the jungle to the majestic Sapo Falls. From this point and on, you may swim in the lake before walking up through the jungle and behind the falls while enjoying a great scenery through a powerful water curtain. Dinner at the camp before going to sleep (beds) to the sound of crickets. Feel free to walk in the Pemon Community and get to know a bit more about their culture.

Day 2. Angel Falls

After breakfast, you will walk through the jungle before taking a motorized canoe up Carrao and Churún rivers towards the spectacular Angel Falls. As you travel along the rivers for about 4 hours, you will have the time to take in the lush scenery and the fantastic Tepuys, you will enjoy a light picnic lunch afterwards.
At Devil’s Canyon, you can see the Angel Falls cascading 1km down from the top of Auyántepuy and running all the way to Churún river. From here this point, you will walk up through the jungle for about an hour to the Laime viewpoint and then down to the rock pools near the base of the falls. If you get lucky, you may swim in the freshwater of Angel Falls. Have a good sleep in our comfortable hammocks front of the tallest fall in the world, if you have not experienced sleeping in hammocks, your tour guide will show how to get a perfect sleep as local Pemons do.

I made my home in Venezuela some years ago mainly because I fell in love with the country, it’s people and the natural wonders of the country.

One such, which in the early days, kept me coming back – Angel Falls in Canaima’s National Park (otherwise known as the Lost World) – not only the location but the history and topography of this unique place. The falls gush from the top of a table-top mountain that is millions of years old. It should be one of the seven natural wonders of the world! Perhaps it is eighth in the list – and so it should be – it’s a spectacular place, even quite spiritual.

Sadly, for adventure and ecotourists, Covid intervened and ALL flights to and from Caracas were badly affected, International and National, but now things are slowly getting back to normal – I am even learning about flights returning this year (2022) from France, Italy and even Spain. So, the future looks promising for tours to Angel Falls and Canaima National Park – believe me this location should be on top of your bucket list.

With good forward planning we will accommodate single tourists if we can and help them to join a group, but it is better to travel when there are 4 or more (talk your best friend into joining you.

I fell in love with Angel Falls and this tour – you will too for sure.
