This unique journey visits off the beaten track destinations including the three Guianas. You will be travelling in land transport where possible, with public transport our first choice.
The accommodation you’ll be staying in, such as Rock View Lodge and Atta Lodge, offer community-run programmes and undertake conservation work. These lodges which are run by the same owners form part of the CATS partnership which is a model of ecotourism that proves the tourism sector, a conservation NGO, and an indigenous community can find joint economic success while providing local opportunity and an excellent experience for visitors from around the world. The Walkway and Lodge are staffed entirely by local Makushi Amerindians who grew up in the rainforest, walking its trails, swimming in its rivers, and learning from countless days of experience.
