Venezuela offers you all the classic ingredients of one of those unforgettable holidays.

From Caracas fly off on a camping expedition to Gran Sabana with its beautiful waterfalls, remote villages full of charming local people and sleepy gold mining towns. You’ll explore the extremely old geological formations that make up Canaima National Park – as well as its wildlife – and then it's onto the natural wonders of the fabulous Orinoco Delta; home to alligators, monkeys, colourful parrots and fearsome piranhas.

The culmination of your trip is three days surrounded by the glorious beach islands of Los Roques Archipelago.

This is a sample itinerary to inspire your holiday – it can be tweaked in every way possible from the places you want to go to and number of days you spend in each, as well as hotels you stay in and activities you do.
