Signature Venezuela: Highlights of the Lost World

13 days from £3,500pp

(based on two people sharing & excluding flights)

Venezuela

  • Angel Falls

Overview & Highlights

Visit Venezuela, with unspoilt landscapes and a welcoming population. See the Angel Falls, the wildlife of the llanos plains and jungle wetlands of the Orinoco delta, and the spiky ice-capped Andean peaks.

It is not on most people’s radar as a holiday destination but you will fall in love with Venezuela, a Latin republic with a Caribbean beat and a strong indigenous presence. On this varied holiday you’ll start off with an adventurous canoe expedition to the foot of Angel Falls, the longest drop in the world, where the stream of water breaks down into a veil of misty spray. Then move on to the spidery network of waterways in the Orinoco delta where the indian Warao communities practice their simple lifestyle.   

Travel on to the country’s portion of jagged, snow-capped Andean mountains, where the upland plains shelter quaint Spanish colonial towns and offer active adventure sports. Finally descend to the extensive savannah grasslands and on to the marshy llanos where capybaras, caiman and anteaters jostle for space and the skies are full of parakeets, toucans and macaws. If you have time after all this exploration, we suggest you spend some time on Venezuela’s glorious Caribbean coastline, where there are laid back barefoot and family resorts, nature reserves and a sprinkling of coral islands with beaches of dazzling whiteness.

  • The boat trip,down the river, the waterfall and above all the trip,through the mango swamps and seeing the flamingos it was magical. However the archeological trips to the different pyramids were also amazing.
    It was overall an excellent experience.

    IR, Malta
  • "Hats off to the Ecuadoreans for reinstating this railway line! It really is one of the world's great train journeys, and all managed with such style and comfort."

    AD, Newcastle
  • One of the most memorable moments was walking up to Machu Picchu and revealed itself in front of us!!! The places we went to eat at were advised by the tour leader and local guides with really good local dishes and good quality. We were unlikely to have found them otherwise.

    MN, Wantage
  • The Penguin tour was a great introduction to Chile, covering such a variety of landscapes and temperatures. Flying over the Andes was impressive. We were also surprised by the wildllife including condors, penguins, guanacos and flamingoes. All the local guides were excellent with superb local knowledge and the ability to make it enjoyable. Our tour leader fed in lots of interesting information as we travelled around.
