Venture into the Andes and Amazon, travelling overland from Cayenne to Boa Vista
Whether you’re a wildlife photographer, twitcher, all-round nature enthusiast or simply an adventurer looking to delve into the Amazon Rainforest, this is a journey not to be missed. A trio of tiny countries on the North coast of Brazil – Suriname, French Guiana, and Guyana – are awash with natural wonders and largely unspoiled. Explore laidback Georgetown and Paramaribo on foot, visit the space station in French Guiana, take a boat cruise around the famed islands of Papillion, and penetrate the dense wilderness of the Amazon in search of pink dolphins. A winning combination of beach, jungle and wildlife is only bolstered by a relative lack of tourists, so if you’re looking for destinations that are all the more incredible for being “not so hot” – look no further.
Visit the exotically located Guiana Space Centre, the massive spaceport where France dreams of Europe being a world space power
Take a boat trip to the infamous Iles du Salut (Devil’s Islands) to explore the local history, snap photos of native wildlife and even take a swim in the convict’s swimming pool
Escape to a private island in Upper Suriname on an exclusive two-day rainforest retreat, surrounded by the buzz and twitter of the Amazon Jungle
Guided walks get you closer to the heart of destinations, from the colourful backstreets of Cayenne to the suspended canopy bridges of the Iwikrama Forest
With a village eco-camp your base, take your time exploring the diverse Rupunini Savannah, with some hiking, biking or canoeing among some 9,000 species of wildlife
