Coropina kano tour

Date homeward travel:
Travel time: 2 days
Price: EUR 149,-
We gather up at ‘Cycling in Suriname’ and travel by car, with the kayaks on board, to the journey’s starting point: Coropina Creek. This is where we load up our kayaks and begin our kayak journey to the Hanover plantation. We paddle our way across the sometimes narrow and dense creek. This is also a lovely opportunity to encounter special animals or witness the colorful splendor of the loudly screeching parrots. We have lunch at an amazing spot in the middle of the forest on the creek’s banks, and what could be nicer than enjoying the sounds of the jungle while enjoying a great meal, knowing there’s no one around for miles?
Including: Experienced guide, all transport, the all-inclusive use of kayaks, lunch, medical kit and safety jackets.
Commonly asked questions
HOW IS THE WEATHER?
The wind will keep you from noticing the sun’s brightness, so you will need to protect yourself well by regularly applying protective lotion with factor 30.
IS IT A DIFFICULT JOURNEY?
No. Anyone who is decently in shape and of good health can participate in this canoe trip. It is not a race and the intention is to enjoy the amazing environment in a more active way.
WHAT TYPE OF KAYAK IS USED?
We use the new Tarpon 160 Sit on Top kayaks for this tour. A flat bottom in the cockpit ensures for a stable boat, while its length and limited depth give it sufficient speed. The boat has a comfortable backrest, plenty of storage to accommodate a longer expedition, two cockpit hatches and a large oval cockpit. Length 4,27 meters/width 71 cm / weight 28 kg, in short; the ideal boat for this tour!
CAN I JOIN WITHOUT ANY EXPERIENCE?
In principle, all those without prior canoe experience can participate in this tour, but we do advise those travelers to rent a canoe a few times beforehand to gain some experience. Experienced guides will accompany you during this journey, who will assist you wherever possible.
ARE THERE DANGEROUS ANIMALS?
You will not find any dangerous animals per se, but you’ll have to combat mosquitos during dusk. That is why we recommend proper protection like long sleeves, long trousers and an anti-mosquito solution like ‘DEET’.
SHOULD I BUY SPECIAL EQUIPMENT?
The largest part of the equipment is made available to you by Travel4Pros, but give us a call should you hesitate about your equipment. An extensive packing list will be sent to you during booking.
IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT?
We do not usually employ an age limit. It is much more important that you possess a flexible attitude and team-spirit. This is a journey through rugged and uninhabited natural terrain, where the chance persists that we deviate from the pre-determined route because of local conditions.
NOT INCLUDED: Insurance, personal expenses.
