#SocoTour: Discover Roraima

7 days hiking trip to Mount Roraima, Venezuela

7 days hiking trip to Mount Roraima, Venezuela

A message from our Founder:

You know what?

Roraima is a magical place.

It’s an undescriptible place. A place filled with energy you can feel like electricity running under your feet.

It’s a journey that drags you in.

It’s an ambient that connects you with your inner self.

It’s a trip that makes you wonder about your life.

In fact, when you start walking you may feel that it's a group trip… but as you walk, it becomes a journey with yourself.

Even if you are traveling in group, the challenge is with you and only you...

And before starting this company, I took that challenge several times.

It was awesome, of course. But my guides’ services had some holes…

So, when we built this #SocoTour we focused on solving all of those weaknesses, complaints and observations that me, my friends and all the other tourists in my travels had.

Specifically, we focused on these 3 common issues:

Problem #1:

Most tour operators won’t give you enough meals on Mt. Roraima

The guides from my first 2 hikes were natives, used to walk a ton and eat very little.

Natives only give you 2 meals per day and maybe a lollipop during the hike (and most tour operators do the exact same).

The problem is that food conditions way too much your mood at Roraima.

If you don’t eat enough, you’re gonna have a hard time there (believe me).

Our fix?

When you travel Roraima with us, we give you not 2 meals like the rest of the companies… not 3 main meals… but we give you 4 meals per DAY.

Caloric expenditure during your hikes is huge and that 4th meal is great to recover your energies.

Also, we serve an awesome menu with tasty meals so you enjoy every single bite.

More:

We also send our custom #SocoKit tailored to your adventure: snacks, dehidrated fruits, nuts and chocolates… superfoods rich in sugars and fats with enough calories to provide energy to your body so you can stay fresh and active the entire time.

Problem #2:

The pics from the hike almost always suck

And without awesome pics… did you even come to Roraima?

Thing is most tourist are afraid of putting their cameras at risk. And considering the high humidity, the rapidly changing weather or you know, the hike in the wilderness… they’re probably right.

Or, some of them don’t have the necessary equipment to begin with…

Our fix?

We brought our A-team of professional photographers (think NatGeo quality…) to our past trips to capture the breath-taking landscapes in the most unbelievable pics.

And after your tour, we give away 10 of our best-est so you always have the best memories of your trip to Roraima!

Problem #3:

When you travel to Roraima, you just never know what to bring

At least I didn’t. When I came as a tourist, I was never told what to pack...

My guides’ only recommendation?

“Bring dri-fit clothing”.

And each and every time I ended up overpacking, with unnecessary weight and clothes I wouldn’t need (let alone wear…)

But the real problem is that with long treks, as little as 2 extra pounds can feel like a thousand bricks!

Our fix?

Before you start your journey, you’ll get your own Travel Guide where you’ll learn specifically what to bring, what to leave at home and even how to pack to make sure you have the most comfortable time up there.

With us, you’ll always know what to carry with you to enjoy.

With us, you’ll have delicious meals every day.

With us, you’ll have the most comfortable trip so you can focus on building unforgettable memories of your adventure.

Because this is a trip you have to live...

But it’s also a trip you have to enjoy.

That’s what we focused on when we created this tour.

We focused on making it so you not only explore The Lost World, but you have the best experience of your life while you’re at it.

Roraima will change your life.

And I’m thrilled to be a part of your adventure.

What will you do in your Tour?

Here's a short list of what will happen during your #SocoTour to Mt. Roraima:

  • You'll trek on the oldest rocky formation on earth (Mount Roraima was NEVER under water, unlike most places in the world. In fact, the plants and animals you can see here don't exist anywhere else...)
  • You'll camp on one of the most remote places of the planet (complete with unbelievable landscapes and tasty meals)
  • You'll visit the most unbelievable spots of this Tepuy (Like The Maverick stone, The Window, The Abyss, Guacharos's Cave, The Pit, The Triple Point... and the list goes on)
  • You'll discover the mountain's secrets (i.e, Roraima has the world's purest water running in one of it's waterfalls, you'll visit it.... You'll listen to the stories and legends of the natives... why Roraima is the mother of all good and the Kukenan next door is the father of all evil... and more)
  • You'll dig deep in the local culture (you'll try their Tribe's typical food and see their lifestyle first hand)
  • You'll smile, enjoy and be thankful for being one of the few who got to explore The Lost World

What will your trip look like?

Here's a quick overview of your trip's itinerary. Jaw drop, sold separately.

Day 1

 Your journey has begun. You'll take a jeep tour from San Francisco de Yuruani to Paraitepuy. After a short stop, you'll start your very first trek all the way up to Rio Tek Camp.​

Day 2

The day starts at Rio Tek where you left off. The hike is long, but easy. You'll get to Base Camp going through the Kukkenan River, the bad boy in this pic.

Day 3

This is it. The big one. From Base Camp you'll walk all the way to La Cima (the very top). This is the hardest trail of your 7 days adventure but the reward is just as big. Just take a look at the view up there.

Day 4

Day 4 is all about exploring. You'll go to: Roraima's Natural "Jacuzzis", La Ventana (where you'll catch the most impressive views from the top), The Crystals Valley, The Pit (in the pic).

Day 5

The secrets of the mountain will be revealed to you on day 5. First you'll see the Maverick Stone (pretty standard thus far) but then... You'll go deep into the mystical cave of El Guacharo where an ancient Pemon ritual takes place. And then it's time to rest for the way down.

Day 6

Good thing you took that rest 'cause today it's time to walk back home. From La Cima you'll go down to Camp Kukkenan.

Day 7

All good things come to an end. On day 7 you'll leave Roraima behind but we must warn you... your life won't be the same anymore.

So... what's included with your package?
