Roundrip Los Llanos & Amazonas - 12/13 days

From all the roundtrips we offer this one is the most adventurous one by fare. Because the regions of Los Llanos and the Amazon have different highlights during the rain and the dry season we have chosen for 2 different programs that fit the best for the different seasons. In the months June to November we will include Caño Cristales as a destination in the program because these are the best months to see the red water plants. Caño Cristales and other destinations in la Macarena we will combine with San José de Guaviuare and its surrounding.

In the relatively drier season (December until May) we will go to the Casanare to spot wildlife,
to make a fascinating tour by horseback through the savanna and by boat over the Río Meta. Both programs end with the spectacular destination Inirida and the Cerros de Mavecure where we will be on the border of the savanna and the jungle, there we have some great activities on the program and will sleep with Indian communities.

Both programs are intended for the experienced traveler with and adventurous spirit and open mind.
We will visit beautiful destinations which are also very special as the infrastructure or tourism has not really been developed. This roundtrip can be booked as a group tour by choosing one of the planned starting dates or as a private tour on any given date by a group of 2 or more people.

Important
To get to Inirida we will use the airline Satena for our flights. Satena only flies on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday to Inirida and with the here mentioned options the flight to Inirida is planned on Saturday, when we will fly on Tuesday or Thursday the program will be shortened by 1 day or extended by 1 or 2 days. Since Satena regularly changes their flight schedule it is recommended to check with us the latest information about the flying dates with Satena.
