One of the natural wonders of the world Beautiful scenery refreshing views. Not easy to access. Remote from civilization. About 3 hour ride through rivers (some with cat 3 Rapids). Some climbing and trekking involved.

Best energy I have ever felt in a place! It's one of the most peaceful and natural places I have seen and looking at that amount of water all over the place is great how nature can provide us a water system so perfect like Angel Falls.

I was on a 3-day trip with a private group visiting Venezuela, Cuidad Boliva and Canaima Park to see the Angel Falls. The trip up river was by 14-seater canoes that were very low in the water. We kept our bags in plastic garbage bags to keep stuff dry. The river run was fantastic- an exhilarating up river run with... More

We went for a 3 days/2 nights trip to Canaima and Angel Falls. The trip was organised by Angel Eco Tours, they arranged pick up and airport assistance in Caracas which is great since Caracas is a bit of a scary place. Small towns feel safe, but assistance with check in and money changing is definitely appreciated and worth the... More

2 x 64 years old''s with no Spanish arrived in Caracas thinking it would be easy to arrange a trip to Angel Falls. Tried a couple of travel agents and they were way over budget. Then we found Ben at Osprey Expeditions. Speaks English and knew exactly what we wanted. Within 6 hours we were on our way. Flights, accommodation,... More

This is not an easy place to get to, small plane, dugout canoe and then trek, but it was so worth it. For most of the way up the river it was cloudy and at times very heavy rain, but as we got closer to the falls the cloud began to clear and wow what a spectacular sight.

It is definitely worth the effort getting up to Angel Falls. I am no waterfall enthusiast, but this is a very special place. Epic. We booked a 3D/2N tour through Hike-Venezuela with Kavac Camp the operator in Canaima. The trip included the standard flights in a Cessna to/from Ciudad Bolivar and Canaima. A four-hour trip in a wooden river boat... More

Angel falls was the best excursion we have done on our travels through the Americas. It is so much more stunning in person than in pictures and the journey there and back is a highlight in itself. From Ciudad Bolivar we got a light aircraft - with only 4 passengers - and took the picturesque flight to Canaima. This in... More

This trip will stay in my memory forever, you are warned before you fly that there may be too much cloud cover to see all of the falls. We were lucky, it was magnificent. We also enjoyed the walk through the river and the visit to the village by the landing strip.
