I went there exactly one year ago. It is a wonderful experience for people who like adventure, great views and particularly don't care about luxury accomodations. I recomend to find a trustworthy guide and agency, and, if you really want to enjoy this, to have patience with the local and natives will go a long way. Enjoy! Don;t foeget to... More

We are just getting back from Canaima. The National park is one of the most beautiful places I've ever seen. It's so untouched and its views are so breathtaking that if you ever doubted there's a god you will be convinced there's a major power somewhere by the time you leave Canaima. The Angel Falls trip is definitely worth doing.... More

Is there a place to stay at the falls or do we need to bring camping gear? Or do we get all that with an organized tour? Any recommendations?

Angel Falls are one of the most amazing waterfalls that I have ever seen (equal in awe-factor, but very different to, Iguasu Falls). The falls themselves are very remote: the section of the national park where they are located can only be reached via flight (there are no roads) and from the airport a boat must be caught upstream to...

The reviews here prettymuch cover the basics of organising a tour so my two cents is to assure those on the fence about visiting this place to fall in favor of having one of the greatest journeys of your life. Canaima national park is unique and beautiful and angel falls is the highlight. My only advice is to go in... More

We did both the long boat ride up river and the helicopter ride, both were very different but worth it. The helicopter ride was definitely a splurge but you get a different viewpoint...and that's priceless. The boat ride is only rough because it's so small and sitting for so long gets really rough for your back and knees. It is... More

Angel Falls was the highlight of our whole 6 month South America tour, which is saying something considering the amazing natural beauty South America has on offer. Osprey organised our whole expedition and it all went really well, cannot recommend them enough. Check out my video to get a feel for the experience https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oVzNnA-wo4M
