Peperpot Bike tour
This Bike tours is a historical trip that takes you through the district of Commewijne, along old Sugar, coffee and cocoa plantations. With every plantation having its own unique story, we extensively visit plantation Peperpot.
• A boat trip to the Commewijne district
• A visit to beautifully restored plantation “Peperpot”
From Paramaribo to Meerzorg by tent-boat (ferry) on the Suriname River. Enjoy a bike ride through the tropical rain forest where butterflies, dragonflies, monkeys, sloths and reptiles are some of the many animals you may encounter. Halfway through the nature trail you may stroll along the irrigation canals to see coffee trees as well as the ‘kofimama’ (Erythrina glauca or shade providers). The trail leads to an historical plantation village where a tour is given of an old coffee factory. Along the way you will see the kampongs, homes of primarily Javanese and Hindustani citizens.
On your way back to Paramaribo you will make a stop at a local restaurant for delicious local lunch.

Most tour operators (like Orange Travel) list their rates in Euro.
The most advantageous way to pay is cash or by bank* in Euro.
Followed by cash in SRD or U$D, then POS in SRD * and finally a credit card payment **.
* If there are any additional bank charges, these should be paid by the customer. If it turns out that not the full agreed amount is credited to our account, the difference should still be paid before participating or checking in.
** When using POS (our machine only excepts SRD) we will use the daily exchange rate of the cambio’s. As these sometimes differ significantly from the rate your- and our bank uses, you can come out worse between 10% and 30% (in this Orange Travel has no benefit, yet influence).
*** All credit card payments are processed in U$D and a bank fee is added. The fee for Visa and MasterCard is 5% (in this Orange Travel has no benefit, yet influence). This payment method requires you to show your passport.
