Brownsberg & Stone Island tour

At the foot of the Brownsberg in the Brokopondo Lake, lies the beautiful peninsula “Ston Island”. The breathtaking view of the lake with its typical tree trunks artistically emerging from the waters is an attraction of its own. Because of its central location, Ston Island is suitable for adventurous activities such as jungle hikes, fishing and cruising in a dugout canoe. With a bit of luck you may catch a Peacock Bass, Silver Croaker or the notorious Piranha. A visit to Brownsberg is also part of the program. This Nature Reserve is not only praised for its exotic wild life and beautiful flora and fauna, but also for its adventurous hikes through the rainforest and exploration to its idyllic waterfalls.

The most advantageous way to pay is cash or by bank* in Euro.
Followed by cash in SRD or U$D, then POS in SRD * and finally a credit card payment **.

* If there are any additional bank charges, these should be paid by the customer. If it turns out that not the full agreed amount is credited to our account, the difference should still be paid before participating or checking in.

** When using POS (our machine only excepts SRD) we will use the daily exchange rate of the cambio’s. As these sometimes differ significantly from the rate your- and our bank uses, you can come out worse between 10% and 30% (in this Orange Travel has no benefit, yet influence).
