One of those countries that you cant take anyones word for it, you need to visit and experience it yourself. Its controversial political turmoil, the raw natural beauty, the passionate warm-blooded locals, and harsh social realities will surprise you beyond belief. Well adventure deep in the Amazon jungle to Angel Falls, the highest waterfalls in the World, witness life in vibrant Caracas, and finish off with another uncharted adventure in the Orinoco river exploring its fauna, flora and indigenous communities. What are you waiting for?


Day 1: Arrival in Caracas.

  • The Expedition starts with an Airport pick-up and welcome dinner in the city. Meet the group and settle in for our life-changing adventure.
  • Dinner and overnight at our four star hotel in downtown Caracas.

Day 2: Exploring Caracas

  • Full-day exploring Venezuela’s lively capital. We’ll visit the city’s most famous landmarks, walk around the Old Town and see Bolivar’s house, as well as the daily lives of local Caraqueños. We’ll venture into a Barrio, humble neighbourhoods where street art and culture takes over, and we’ll wander to the best viewpoints in town. From there, we will experience some of the quirks of Venezuela like its super inflation and almost free gas. Of course, when in Caracas, we’ll have time to feast on the best Venezuelan gastronomy.
  • Dinner and overnight by the airport to catch our early morning flight tomorrow.

Day 3: Journey to Angel Falls

  • In the early morning our Expedition heads to Maiquetía Airport, to catch a small charter flight to the rainforests of Canaima NP, where the infamous Salto Angel Waterfall lies, the highest waterfall in the World, towering at 979m over the forests of Canaima. It will be a river expedition that will take a few hours crossing the incredibly photogenic jungles of Canaima, rich in biodiversity. After a short hike, we’ll reach the base of the falls, where we will overnight. Usually tours go back to the lodge on the same day, having just a brief visit in Angel Falls. However, we’ll try to maximize our time at the falls and enjoy a sunset and sunrise there. A night you’ll never forget under the stars, the falls and the sounds of the jungle!
  • Dinner and overnight in an adventurous hammock camp at the base of Angel Falls.

Day 4: Angel Falls and Canaima

  • After breakfast, we’ll make our way back to Canaima following the course of the winding rivers coveted by the jungle canopy. A cruise you’ll always remember!
  • Dinner and overnight in our hammock camp in Mayupa.

Day 5: Laguna de Canaima & Sapo Falls, & Orinoco River

  • Upon our arrival in Canaima, we will venture out to explore the Lagoon of Canaima, as well as Sapo Falls.
  • Flight to Ciudad Bolivar or Puerto Ordaz after midday. Lunch before departure. Boat ride in the Orinoco river and late arrival to the lodge, dinner included.
  • Dinner and overnight camp at our luxury Canaima Lodge.

Day 6: Pedernales – Orinoco Delta.

  • Departure to Pedernales. Visit to Isla Misteriosa and Winamorena, both quite interesting Warao indigenous people villages. Boat ride back to Orinoco Queen, late arrival.

    This was hands down the adventure of a lifetime! Hard to put into words what a transformative experience is sharing 10 days with people of 13 different nationalities. The best part is everything is planned for you, so you just need to show up and start having an incredible time!
    You can’t go wrong with a WanderExpedition!

  5. Leon Weiss

    I had an amazing time in Venezuela with Wanderexpeditions! The country is incredible and a new highlight waited almost every day. But what really made the trip were the people. Our group was very international and we had a lot of fun together. I definitely made some good friends here that I will travel with in the future. Do yourself the favor and join a wanderexpedition!
