CarChallenge organizes this trip for the fourth time. The Amazone Challenge is meant for 4WD drivers that are not afraid for kilometers and are looking forward to driving on a whole new level. Every 4WD-car is fit to conquer the Amazone, as long as they are equipped with the right tires and a capable driver!
Everything about the Amazone Challenge
It always rains in the Amazone and many of the roads are unpaved. Sometimes the rainforest is so dense and impenetrable that the only option is to take a ferry. An indispensable element in this amazing adventure.
The tour will start in Paramaribo. The cars will be shipped there and will be ready in front of the best hotel of Paramaribo.

We start in the best hotel of Suriname and sleep in a beautiful jungle lodge. In Guyana the accommodation is also fine, but in the Amazone the hotels are simple. A few shelters are even primitive.
The local food is in the center of attention and we enjoy eating among the local population. Food in South-America is good, a lot of fish along the rivers, and meat elsewhere. Vegetables are also well available. Lunching beside the road is even recommended.
Dinners and breakfast every day
Depending on the weather conditions the route will change from a piece of cake to a true adventure. The Challenge will always be driven in the dry season, yet the rainforest is not always dry.
