Morning River Cruise, Amazon Rainforest


Suriname packs an enormous punch for such a small country. Criss-crossed with rivers and swathed in Amazonia’s oldest roots, it is a pioneering holiday destination ideal for nature enthusiasts.

Besides being the smallest independent country in South America, Suriname remains the colonial home of the Dutch and has a diverse mix of European, African and Amerindian cultures. These cultures have fused together creating an eclectic blend of food, music and culture.

What to expect on your Suriname holiday

Its vivacious capital, Paramaribo, is a bustling port with lively markets and an jumble of 18th and 19th century buildings, yet beyond the Atlantic coast Suriname’s main attraction lies in a sparsely populated interior blanketed by a dense and untamed rainforest which covers some 80% of the country.

John Faithfull

My love affair with travel began in a vintage Italian train carriage at sunset on a hot and sticky September evening in 1983. Sardined into a two-bench compartment, I’d spent five hours sharing sweaty thighs, broken-Italian pleasantries and furtive glances while rattling towards Turin, stopping at every wisteria-draped village along the way.
