This trip offers a fascinating mix of adventure, nature experiences and cultural insights into Venezuela, with direct contact to the different ethnic groups. The trip is guided by a specialized tour guide who will introduce you to all the special features of Venezuela.

 

Day 1: Bienvenidos a Venezuela!

When you arrive in Caracas, head to the terminal of Simón Bolívar International Airport in Maiquetía. There, you'll be greeted and handed your tickets and vouchers for the round trip. A transfer to a hotel near the airport will be arranged for you.

Caracas, the political and cultural capital of Venezuela, holds significance for us due to its excellent airport connections. However, tomorrow, you'll be drawn away from the bustling metropolis to explore the country's natural wonders. While Caracas boasts some impressive museums and Venezuela's finest restaurants, the allure of nature beckons.

As evening falls, immerse yourself in the city's ambiance. Feel the atmospheric fog descending from the lush mountains, keeping the city comfortably cool year-round. Listen to the melodious symphony of chirping sapitos (small frogs) and crickets, creating a beautiful evening chorus that serenades the night.

Accommodation: Hotel Cayena Caracas *****

 

Day 2: By domestic flight and canoe to the Orinoco Delta

In the early morning you fly from Caracas to Maturin. Our driver will be waiting for you at the airport and drive past cattle and buffalo farms to the river village of San José de Buja. In San José, a motorized canoe will take you to the Eco Camp - a 30-minute ride along the river surrounded by dense tropical rainforest and Warao communities.

On arrival, you will take a short tour of the camp before heading to your Warao-style hut to relax before lunch. In the afternoon, you will take a boat trip along some of the smaller channels of the delta, looking for wildlife such as macaws, toucans, capuchin and red howler monkeys, sloth bears and freshwater dolphins.

At sunset you can lie comfortably in the hammock until dinner is served and you can round off the day with a drink at the bar.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner

Accommodation: Orinoco Delta Lodge

 

Day 3: Visiting the Warao aborigines

In the morning after breakfast, you set off again to explore the delta by boat, traveling through primary forest and mangrove forest. Your guide will lead you on a walk through the jungle (rubber boots provided) and explain how the Warao Indians use many of the trees and plants growing there for food, medicine and tools.

You will either have a picnic by the river or back at camp. Later, you will have the opportunity to swim in the river (in Piraña-free waters). You will also visit a Warao community to get an insight into the life of the indigenous people and buy some locally made handicrafts such as jewelry and baskets.

Spend the evening at the camp and enjoy the peace and tranquillity of the delta, interrupted only by the sounds of the jungle animals.

Meals:Breakfast, lunch, dinner

Accommodation: Orinoco Delta Lodge

 

Day 4: Colonial buildings and river panorama in Ciudad Bolívar

Today you can spend the morning at leisure: explore the river in a small canoe or visit the Warao once again to buy souvenirs. Alternatively, you can simply enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the camp and laze around in a hammock before preparing for your departure to Ciudad Bolivar.

Once in Ciudad Bolivar, we head to the very well-preserved old town with its beautiful, colorful colonial buildings and then on to the hotel with a view of the gigantic Orinoco. This important river flows into the Atlantic to the east of the city, which is why Ciudad Bolívar has the most important river port in eastern Venezuela.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch

Accommodation: Casa Angostura ****

 

Day 5: El Salto Sapo - a special waterfall in Canaima

We will pick you up from your hotel in the morning and accompany you to the domestic airport terminal for yours spectacular  private flight to Canaima.  A transfer is already waiting to take you to the camp on the Canaima lagoon with its spectacular views. After a welcome  We start at the pink sandy beach of Laguna de Canaima to take a walk in this enchanting area and approach the wild waterfalls such as the Sapo waterfall. The dramatic scenery offers you the opportunity to take the best photos in the park. A hollow under the cascading water masses allows you to walk behind the waterfall - a very special experience that is best done in swimwear.  We then return to our camp to enjoy a delicious dinner.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner

Accommodation: Waka Wena Lodge *****

 

Day 6: Helicopter or Cessna flight to Salto Angel

Today you get to see the Salto Angel for the first time, either by helicopter or in a Cessna. It is the most spectacular way to visit the gigantic cascade. The exact time for take-off is decided by the pilot, who knows the clouds and wind conditions. The flight lasts an hour and is an unforgettable experience. We can spend the rest of the day on the beach of the Canaima lagoon.

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner

Accommodation:  Waka Wena Lodge *****

 

Day 7: Domestic flight to the Caribbean archipelago of Los Roques

After collecting your luggage at the lodge, you will be transferred to the airport and have the opportunity to browse the local stores en route.

After the domestic flight back to Caracas, you check in for the next flight - today's final destination is Los Roques. After a 50-minute flight, you will be met at the archipelago to take you to your beautiful Inn, which is located right next to the beach.

Los Roques is an archipelago of 67 islands located north of Caracas in the Caribbean Sea. Here in this Venezuelan paradise you will spend the following  days of your vacation

Meals: Breakfast, dinner

Accommodation: Posada La Lagunita ****

 

Day 8: Sun, beach and sea!

Spend the whole day on the beach!

Today you will visit the remote islands of the archipelago by small boat to relax, walk along the white sandy beaches or swim in the crystal-clear water. Explore the underwater world while snorkeling through the aquatic paradise and enjoy the sound of the sea. In addition to all the aquatic creatures, with a bit of luck you may also spot dolphins, whales, turtles, manta rays and the pink queen conch!

Meals: Breakfast, lunch, dinner

Accommodation: Posada La Lagunita ****

 

Day 9: A toast to life at sunset by the sea
