Our flagship adventure circuit lets you combine the majestic beauty of the Andean mountains with breathtaking views of Angel Falls and the sparkling beaches of Venezuela's Caribbean. This trip is a great choice for couples, families or anyone else seeking adventure without really roughing it.
Day 1 Friday - Caracas
Arrival in Caracas, Venezuela. Airport reception and transfer to the Caracas Hilton. Overnight.
Day 2 Saturday - Caracas / Canaima
Today you'll head out to the Lost World of Canaima National Park. This is a land of tepuis, spectacular rose-colored mesas, rising 4,600 feet to 6,900 feet. Each tepui is associated with an ancient Pemon Indian God. Arriving in Canaima, you'll check into your simple bungalow with private bath facilities. After lunch you may embark on a short boat excursion in the Canaima Lagoon, approaching Hacha Falls. Other optional excursions are also available. Though surprisingly sparse in wildlife, this virgin wilderness abounds with natural beauty. You'll see numerous waterfalls, small islands dotted with pink and white sand beaches, and exotic tropical flora. (B,L,D)
Day 3 Sunday - Angel Falls
Weather permitting, you'll board a Servivensa DC-3, for an overflight of Angel Falls. Flying over the massive Auyan-Tepui mesa, you may have a spectacular bird's-eye view of the world's tallest waterfall cascading 3,200 feet into the jungle below. Angel Falls is 15 times higher than Niagara. The cascade is named after Jimmy Angel, an eccentric American bush pilot, who discovered the falls while exploring the area for mineral deposits. (B,L,D)
Day 4 Monday - Merida
Today you'll fly to Merida, capital of the Venezuelan Andes. Enjoy the awesome sights of the mountain plateaus and rugged peaks of the Andes. Choose one of our hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding or jeep excursions and experience a region steeped in a culture that seems to have stood still for centuries. (To prepare our guides prior to your arrival, please advise us which activity you prefer when making your reservation.) Accommodations range from small hotels to rustic mountain inns. (B,L,D)
Day 5, Day 6, Day 7 Tuesday-Wednesday-Thursday - Andes
Over the next three days, your Scenic Andes adventure will allow you to experience the grandeur of the mountains and the charm of small Andean hamlets. Throughout each excursion, your local, bilingual guide can help you discover the Andes and meet its inhabitants in a personalized way. Lodging is at the Hotel Don Juan or Belensate in Merida, and Los Frailes Inn in the paramo region near Santo Domingo. (B,L,D)
Day 8 Friday - Caribbean
As a finale, choose from one of Venezuela's varied Caribbean options. Puerto La Cruz and Margarita Island offer comfortable, 5-star hotel accommodations and resort-type amenities. In contrast, Morrocoy National Park and Los Roques Archipelago have protected coral reefs teeming with marine life. Snorkel, swim, explore or just bask in the Caribbean sunshine.
