Orquidea Island Tour consists in taking a rustic vehicle to a dock in Puerto Ucaima where you will board a canoe. It takes 15 minutes to reach the Mayupa Rapids. While you're sailing on the Carrao river to the Mayupa Rapids you will enjoy the view of the Kurún, Venado and Kuravaina tepuyes in the background. To avoid the turbulence of the rapids you will walk through the savannah for 30 minutes-. Then, you will take again the canoe and continue your trip on the river through the Arautaima Rapids. Gradually, the Auyantepuy will surprise you with its majestic size. You will continue up the river for about 45 minutes to the Pozo de la Felicidad where you will stop to enjoy the waterfall and a delightful swim in its crystal fresh waters. After, you will continue navigating the river for 45 minutes until you reach Isla Orquídea located on the Ahonda area. Now, you will have the opportunity to walk around the island, swim in the river and rest a while before enjoying a delicious grilled chicken prepared by the pemons. After relaxing a little longer you will return to the camp.
