Tour Information

Day 1

From Paramaribo we travel 2,5 hours by jeep (with the canoes on a trailer) to the point of departure along the uper Coesewijne river. Once in the boat we make our way through the narrow Upper Coesewijne river. If the water level is low we will often have to get out of the boat to pull it over the obstakkels and fallen trees. Late in the afternoon we make our camp and there is nothing nicer than to enjoy the different sounds from the jungle while we have our delicious meal knowing that there is no one in the close surroundings. Just us in the jungle.


Day 2

Today we continue by canoe on the Coesewijne River passing Pakoeli, the place where STINASU had a lodge, and other amazing places.
Here we will also see a lot of beautiful birds like Hawks, weaver birds and different species of Parrots. After lunch we start our last part of our trip and return to Pakoeli where the jeep will be waiting to take us back. We arrive in Paramaribo at the end of the day.
