Kourou River, Kourou

3.2
#4 of 8 in Nature in French Guiana
Flowing farther than the eye can see, Kourou River pours out in the Atlantic Ocean. The river's brown, muddy waters give it a striking resemblance to the Amazon River. The many fish species living beneath the water's surface remain an important part of the local diet. Set off in a traditional log canoe called pirogue for a chance to appreciate the river and effortlessly snap a few memorable photos. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Kourou holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Kourou River and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Scenery for a city dweller like me. What pleasure of navigating this river and to become aware of the strength of the all powerful nature. The water is teeming with life. The forest is lush.
