Mount Roraima, located on the triple border of Brazil, Venezuela and Guyana, is currently one of the most desired mountains by mountaineers and trekkers around the world. We will be the first group to arrivego to the base by bike. And we are going to do this in a different way, as we will have porters for our luggage and people to take care of the bikes while we are trekking.

Incredible landscapes of great scenic beauty,
a fascinating bike base arrival, long, pleasant and easy walks, in addition to inspiring stories and legends, are the attractions of the itinerary.

Famous for Conan Doyle's novel about the Lost World, Roraima is a mountain unlike any other, as it has a summit of over 100 km2, where, according to the British writer, prehistoric monsters lived. Despite the fantasy, the summit landscape actually inspires a lost world due to the various bizarre geological forms, such as stone towers, caves, deep crevices, waterfalls, icy lakes and the somewhat exotic vegetation, almost always shrouded in fog due to of the temperature difference between the top and the surroundings of the mountain, in equatorial latitudes.

Even in the middle of the Amazon, the Roraima region is not surrounded by forests, but by the “Gran Sabana”, a type of Venezuelan cerrado that extends through the Brazilian state of the same name. This landscape will be part of the first days of biking/trekking. Despite being part of Brazil, access and services are all Venezuelan. The base city for this itinerary is the small Santa Elena do Uairén, located on the border with Pacaraima (Brazil). Access is via an indigenous village, Paraitepuy, the entry point to the Canaima National Park where the mountain is located in Venezuela.

This itinerary lasts 8 days and 7 nights, plus days of arrival and return in Boa Vista and includes travel from Boa Vista (RR) to Santa Elena and then to the mountain (round trip). And it also includes mountain guides, and the entire structure for carrying out the challenge.

Here we will weigh and distribute the luggage of the porters. Our ride starts here and will take approximately 5 hours (14km) to camp on the Kukenan River or Tek River.

Today we will cross the Kukenan River, which requires the use of socks as there are extremely slippery rocks. On this day we will do a bike ride to observe Roraima up close and think about it the next day. In the camp we have a small river nearby where we can bathe. From here we can observe the imposing Roraima up close. In the evening we will have dinner and we will pass on the information about the next day.

Today we will only have 6 km of route, however we will gain 800 meters in altitude. As soon as we leave the camp, we will have a very winding and steep trail through the forest that takes us quickly to the base of the Roraima wall. We will walk through dense forest, roots and loose stones. This will be one of the most beautiful moments of the trek, with stops along the way for photos and rest. The entire route will take 4 to 6 hours and we will have water at 3 points along the trail. We will reach an altitude of 2800 meters and for this reason the temperature will drop considerably.

Just 300 meters away is Vale dos Cristais. A curious point where there are thousands of small crystals and curious formations. In less than 1 hour after the triple point, we already have the Coati Hotel, which is an immense sandstone cavern where dozens of tents fit. There is a kind of hall where you can see the sky. We won't have much unevenness today, however we will have some descents and ascents due to the rough terrain at the top of Roraima.

Distance: 12km


Day 6 – Coati Camp – Lake Gladys – Mirante da Proa
means of displacement: Trekking
Altitude – 2800m

Those who are willing can leave very early to see the sunrise from the Roraiminha viewpoint (a smaller tepui), located 500 meters from Coati. We'll have breakfast and take a 6 km hike towards Lake Gladys, a curious lake at the bottom of a cave with a collapsed roof. On the way, we'll eat a trail snack and then head to the huge crevasse that separates the bow of the Roraima. This will be the northernmost point of our route and if the weather permits, we will be able to see beautiful landscapes of the equatorial forest of Guyana. We will return to Coati Camp for dinner and sleep. For those who prefer a little rest, they can stay at the camp.

Distance: 14km


Day 7 – Coati Camp – El Foso – Ventana – Yacuzi – Hotel Sucre

If time permits, we will visit the curious Ventana, which is a rock formation that resembles a window. In the background of the window is the landscape of the distant Amazon rainforest. On the way we have the Yacuzis which are pools that resemble jacuzzi tubs. Our night will be at Hotel Principal or Hotel Sucre.
