Frederiksdorp 2 day tour

Frederiksdorp 2 day tour

Frederiksdorp is a former coffee and cocoa plantation. In the 18th century this plantation was founded by a German man from Prussia named Johan Friedrich Knoffel. The history of Frederiksdorp recalls both European and African traditions. Frederiksdorp is centrally situated along the Commewijne river, making it an important logistic town. Now a days Frederiksdorp features adventurous activities like dolphins spotting, long cycling- and hiking trails, visiting fishing villages, sea beaches, mangrove forests. Activities that the surrounding plantations don’t have.

This former plantation with the original plantation houses and even a former police station, has been declared a world heritage site and is recently transformed into an beautiful resort. The comfortably furnished apartments are all equipped with air conditioning, wifi and hot water. There is also a swimming pool with a beautiful pool deck and a large river terrace. On the estate fruit is planted that you can pick yourself: oranges, mangoes, papayas and coconuts. The plantation also has a good restaurant and a well-stocked bar where you can enjoy typical Surinamese meals. Optional tours are offered in the vicinity, from educational to adventurous tours. There are also bikes to rent for those who want to explore Frederiksdorp on their own.

Frederiksdorp is also an excellent base for other tours throughout the Commewijne district.

You will depart from Hotel Torarica by bus and head for Marienburg. From Marienburg you will get into a boat to sail to Plantation Resort Frederiksdorp.

Upon arrival you will be welcomed by the employees who will give you a historical walk through the premises.

Around lunch time (depending on the tide) our guide takes you on a boat to see dolphins. Because of the convenient location of Frederiksdorp you won’t have to sail very far to spot the dolphins. Often you will see the dolphins a bit further from the boat. With any luck there will be one close to the boat so you can catch a good glimpse of the pink-bellied dolphins.

After breakfast you will take a bike ride in the surrounding area with a professional guide. You depart from Frederiksdorp eastwards to Kronenburg and pass several old plantations, locks and canals. The guide will tell you all about the history and the different cultures in the district.

Afterwards you will return to Frederiksdorp where the bicycles are returned. After checking out, you start your journey back to the pickup point in Paramaribo, Hotel Torarica.

Most tour operators (like Orange Travel) list their rates in Euro.
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).
