How hard is it go get to see Angel Falls, from what I'm reading it doesn't seem straight forward. Is flying in or travelling in via boat an option? Are their tours that cover this kind of thing?
Hi! Yes, the only way to get there is by flying or boat. You need to get to Canaima National Park first. There are various excursions or tours that will take you there. From Ucaima port in Canaima you can take one of the tours by boat that takes about 3 hours to get there. Also, there are tours taking a plane from Caracas, Puerto Ordaz or Ciudad Bolivar (last 2 located in Bolivar State where Canaima National Park is located) Here's the link of 1 of the tours you can take http://www.salto-angel.com/howto-get-there.htm
Hope it helps you! And it's something you need to see... It's AMAZING!

Cheapest and easiest way to see the Falls. Previously book a 3 Day / 2 Night tour. Get the Bus to Ciudad Bolivar. Flight over the jungle in a light aircraft for about 1 hour until the Pemon Village of Kanaimö, otherwise known as Canaima. From here you will embark on a 4 hour motorized canoe ride to the base of the Angel Fals and, weather permitting, walk to the base of the falls for a swim in the pool at th efoot of the Falls. Ovenight in rustic camp opposite the falls in a hammock with mosquito netting. The next day back to Canaima by boat and from there on another canoe across the Canaima Lagoon lake until the Sapo Falls, where, in the raimny season, you can walk behind it's thundering curtain of water.
All the best,
