7D/6N Starting at $653 per person

The Roraima Trek is one of the highlights of Venezuela and all of South America. Mount Roraima, a tabletop mountain locally known as a tepui, is located on the Guiana Shield in the southeastern corner of Venezuela and is the highest of the Venezuela tepuis at 2,600 meters (8,530 feet). During the climb and while on top you will discover bizarre rock formations, amazing landscapes and unique flora and fauna. The isolation of the tepuis has led to the existence of endemic plant species with two species found only on Roraima. Tepuis are also home to unique species of fauna, such as the Roraima Bush Toad, found only on Roraima. The private trek can be modified with additional days/nights on the summit.

*Included with the trekking price: English-speaking trekking guide, tents and kitchen/cooking equipment, porters for expedition equipment, 1 night Santa Elena hotel (night 6), excursions and meals as specified on the itinerary. Personal porters, sleeping bag and pad not included but can be arranged locally in advance.

Depending on current airline schedules it may be necessary to transfer overland from Puerto Ordaz or Ciudad Bolivar (along a very scenic route) or charter a flight to Santa Elena. For this reason the hotel night prior to the trek is not included.
