About this trip


French Guiane is the neighbor country of Suriname on the north part and the smalles country of South America.

Also it is an overseas colony of France, where we have the baguettes and croissants. 

French Guiana is know for the movie or book Papillon, The Devils Island and Space center. 

A visit to French Guiane is recommended since you are in Suriname. We can do a 3 days highlight tour of the must see and do in this overseas colony. Going to Kourou or Cayenne and return is only possible by overland transfer. 

Day 1

You will Depart Suriname at 7am for an apprx 3,5 hour transfer to the border city Albina in Suriname.

Here we have the border formalities and cross the river to St. Laurent by piraque or ferry. ( what is available at that moment) 

From St. Laurent we visit the penal colony of France and the jail where Papillon was banned. This tour will take around 2 hours. 

After this tour we will proceed to Cayenne and have a city tour of this historical site. After this tour you will be transferred to Kourou for the overnight.

The trip was good! There were some problems with the itinerary details which required updating. It involved a lot of traveling for short stays at some very enjoyable resorts, which should be lengthened. The Jewish Settlement and Roti attractions should be discarded. But overall a very good trip, good people and wonderful scenery!

Thank you Laura for taking part of this experience.
This trip was fantastic. A very small group, responsive agent (Mr. Dinesh), and beautiful destinations. I would recommend maybe asking to stay 2 nights in one or two of the resorts if possible though just to take a little time to relax. 2 nights at Akira and Anaula for example.

Hello Brian, we will work on the ity to have 1 moe day to relax at Akira and enjoy nature.
Kaieteur Falls is a must see if you’re in Guyana and there’s a trip going out (more likely on the weekend - they need to fill up the tiny plane with 12 people). It’s stunning. The flight over is also quite nice, over pristine rainforest. Communication was excellent, and the trip went smoothly. Well there were delays in our flight takeoff but it happens. Overall highly enjoyed this trip!
