Full-day River Tour (9.00am to 5.00pm) – St Jean du Maroni, Apatou and the “Saut Hermine” rapids

9.00am – Your departure meeting point is our landing stage at St Jean du Maroni (a 15 minutes’ drive from St Laurent) where you will board a motorized pirogue and cast off to explore the Maroni River.

This river tour will take you to the “Ile Portal” river island, the Amerindian village of Biguiston and its polishing stones and finally to the Wacapou creek. Extra stops may include a number of other Maroon and Amerindian villages where you can discover crafts and local workshops (pirogue building, “couac” flour preparation from cassava roots; peanut shelling and sorting, etc.).

11.00am – Exploration of the former “Forestière” penal colony (depending on the season, this will include a visit of the ruins and/or discovery of the local fauna and flora).

12.00am – Arrival at Apatou. Tour of the village—the capital of Tembe art.

01.00pm – Thrill as your pirogue navigates the Saut Hermine rapids—right before your lunch stop and leisure time for swimming.

03.30pm – Return to St Jean du Maroni.
