As your light plane weaves through the tight rock walls of Devil’s Canyon, you’ll catch your breath as you bank sharply amidst untouched rainforest to reveal the cascading waters of the world’s highest waterfall.
Experience all the color and character of Caracas – Venezuela’s bustling capital – and prepare yourself for a natural adventure that will feel worlds away from the sights and sounds of city life. In Canaima, step into your dugout canoe and paddle across Canaima lagoon with impressive views of its seven waterfalls. On shore, hike through savannah to reveal a path that leads behind the impressive water curtain of Sapo Falls en route to expansive views of the Tepuy landscape. You’ll also paddle down the Carrao River and hike through dense jungle to discover Yuri waterfall where you’ll have time to relax on the pink sandy beach at the bottom of the fall. But the highlight will undoubtedly be your scenic flight into Devil’s Canyon and on to soaring Angel Falls – the highest waterfall on earth.
In addition to revealing the secret life of the jungle and its abundant wildlife, your team of experienced local guides will also share with you the colorful legend of Jimmy Angel – the down-on-his-luck bush pilot who discovered the world’s highest waterfall while lost in the wilderness following a gold prospecting expedition gone wrong. You’ll have a much easier time than Angel, however, as you enjoy all the comforts of a luxury range of accommodation throughout your trip.

Departure from Canaima airstrip, and flight over the spectacular landscape of Canaima National Park. After approx. 20 min. we enter the impressive Devil's Canyon, and soon we see the highest waterfall on earth: Angel Falls. It was 1935, when a stranger offered Jimmy Angel $5000 to fly him to an uncharted mountaintop in southern Venezuela, and the bush pilot, down on his luck, jumped at the chance. He flew his mysterious passenger to this mountaintop, and set up camp by a stream. In three days, they found 75 pounds of gold. Returning to Caracas, Mr. Angel lost contact with his passenger. Trying to return, but without his treasure guide, he fruitlessly scoured the vast wilderness for the golden stream. One day he crash landed on top of a 2400 meter high mountain. Two weeks later the exhausted adventurer emerged on foot, bearing with him knowledge of a secret the local Pemón Indians had guarded for centuries: Churún Merú, the world´s highest waterfall.
