  • Bespoke Tour: We organise this trip as a private trip to fit your dates and suit your interests. Please email us for details and a quote.

Angel Falls is the tallest waterfall on Earth. At 979 m in height (nearly a vertical kilometre high), this immense cascade is twice the height of the Empire State building and fifteen times the height of Niagara Falls - it is one of the great natural spectacles of our world.

Seeing Angel Falls from a light aircraft is an unforgettable experience, and the possibility to capture spectacular photographs of this beautiful waterfall. We organise flyover tripson a bespoke private tour basis to fit your dates.

We particularly recommend undertaking a flyover of Angel Falls before or after our helicopter or trekking expeditions to Mount Roraima, or our canoe trips to Angel Falls, as flying above this gigantic cascade really gives a full impression of the size of the Falls, and the dramatic scale of the Tepuis.

Note: if you are undertaking our canoe trip to Angel Falls (either as a bespoke tour or as part of our one our other trips), we can often build in a flyover above Angel Falls very economically, either make use of the planned flight to/from Canaima Village. Please email us for details.

Flyover Angel Falls Itinerary

Day 1: Meet at Puerto Ordaz Airport, Venezuela for 8.00 am departing flight in a light aircraft. We fly directly to Angel Falls. Prior to departure, participants can decide how much flying time they use circling over Angel Falls. We recommend at least 40 minutes flying time in situ, this will allow approximately four passes over Angel Falls (two for each side of the plane), giving all participants opportunities to photograph the beautiful cascade. The plane then returns to Puerto Ordaz (or will land in Canaima Village if you are undertaking out canoe trip to the base of Angel Falls).
