This unforgettable tour includes a flight from Ciudad Bolivar deep into the Canaima jungle and accommodation in a camp close the the waterfalls.
Day 1: The angel falls are located impenetrably deep inside Canaima national park. Your tour begins with an impressive flight in a light aircraft to the camp, close to the Laguna de Canaima, from which you can see the beautiful Hacha Falls.
After a tasty lunch in the indigenous village you will be taken across the lagoon and past the Hacha falls in a small boat. From this side of the lagoon you will walk along the pink sand banks and up, through the jungle, to the majestic Sapo Falls. From here you can swim in the lake before walking up through the jungle and behind the falls and enjoy the scenery through the powerful curtain of water. Dinner at the camp before falling asleep in hammocks to the sound of crickets.
Day 2: After breakfast at the camp you will walk through the jungle before taking a motorized canoe along the Carrao and the Churún Rivers, to the spectacular Angel falls. As you travel along the rivers you have time to take in the lush scenery and the dramatic Tepuys and enjoy a light lunch.
Only when you arrive at Devil's Canyon can you see the Angel Falls cascading over 1km from the top of the Auyán-Tepuy to the Rio Churún. From here you will walk up through the jungle for an hour to the Mirador Laime vantage point and then down to the rock pools near the base of the falls where you can swim in the fresh water. That night you will eat a delicious, freshly prepared meal at a camp close to the falls before falling asleep in your hammock to the sound of the falls.
Day 3: After breakfast and coffee at the camp you will travel back down the river to the first camp where you will eat lunch before taking a final flight over the jungle to Ciudad Bolivar.
