Kourou River, Kourou

Water Body
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. Choose to start, finish, or center your holiday on a trip to Kourou River by using our Kourou vacation planner.

  • 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. The air is pure. The top is access and then stay in one of the many shelters lining the River in order to live a totally unique immersion experience.
