Due to popular demand, our Venezuela tour is back! After years of absence, it’s finally back on our travel calendar. During the tour, you will experience the incredible diversity that Venezuela has to offer to visitors.
Of course, a YPT-tour is not complete without the full socialist experience. So expect the Chavez mausoleum, socialist murals, the square where the anti-government protests took place and a walk through a socialist neighbourhood in Caracas.
One of the best-hidden secrets of Venezuela is Catatumbo lightning in the south of Venezuela. It’s a hell of a tour to get here (car, plane, boat), but it will surely leave you in awe. This incredible phenomenon happens around 140 to 160 nights a year, 10 hours per day and up to 280 times per hour. So what is it? It’s a major storm cloud in the distance that gives this incredible lightning show. Scientists still don’t know exactly why it happens at this specific spot, but it surely is a once in a lifetime experience!
Another (not so hidden) gem of Venezuela is, of course, Angel Falls. Both parks are located in the east of the country on the border of Brazil, which means we’ll have to take a local flight to get there. Angel Falls is the highest waterfall in the world. While in other countries it would be a packed place, in Venezuela you are probably the only one!
