Overview & Highlights
This trail-blazing holiday follows a unique itinerary through the three Guianas. The remoteness and the nature of the wilderness terrain makes it a route difficult to negotiate independently, so travelling with a small escorted group is the ideal way to make progress across the borders and visit off the beaten track, extraordinary places.
This is a trip which emphatically goes off the beaten track, taking in some of the rarely-visited highlights of Suriname and the Guianas. You won’t find a group tour like this offered by anyone else: the logistics of researching and organising such a trip are daunting but as South America experts we relished the challenge. You'll scramble through dense jungle; surround yourself with wildlife in a rainforest canopy and drive through sweeping savannah punctuated by ancient sandstone plateaux.
You’ll stay in sweltering frontier settlements; visit the French space station and an old penal colony; take boat rides down jungle-fringed rivers and lap up the atmosphere of colonial towns and brash, bold capital cities. You'll have to be prepared for delays, for things not going quite to plan, but you'll be rewarded by an unforgettable trip.
