WELCOME TO CANAIMA

Renowned for its cascading waterfalls and as the gateway to Angel Falls, Canaima National Park is UNESCO-protected, remote and spectacular.

Canaima National Park is surrounded by ancient tepuis, flat-topped mountains up to 180 million years old. The park’s centrepiece, Angel Falls, drops 979 meters from Auyán-tepuy, the largest tepui in the area.

Named after the pilot Jimmy Crawford Angel, who flew over them in the 1930s, Angel Falls has a staggering 979-meter plunge, earning its reputation as the world’s highest and arguably most impressive waterfall.

TRAVELLING DEEPER

Trek to the summit of Mount Roraima, journey up the Churún River to reach Angel Falls, unwind at the Canaima lagoon and hike to El Sapo waterfall.

We’ll help you see Canaima a little differently. Positioned between Ciudad Bolívar and Canaima, a journey along the Río Caura to Para Falls offers a more offbeat experience, with fewer crowds.

October and November are our favourite months to visit the National Park and the falls. Heavy rainfall in August and September can obscure visibility, and water levels during the dry season (Jan-May) can make access to the falls more difficult.

Our team have travelled extensively throughout the region, so please contact us with any questions.
