Adventure in Colombia
Thanks to its equatorial location, Colombia’s landscapes are as diverse as they are beautiful. From palm fringed beaches and snow capped mountains, lush jungle and rolling coffee plantations, Colombia’s amazing topography is amazingly varied allowing visitors to enjoy a countless array of adventure activities.
Santander and San Gil
The region of Santander and San Gil is an adventure playground. Nestled in the Andes, in the northeast of Colombia, the region is often hailed as the adventure capital of the country. With a catalogue of adrenaline fuelled activities to enjoy, from white water rafting and hiking to abseiling and mountain biking, there is limitless opportunity to get outdoors and explore.
The Lost City trek through the ‘Ciudad Perdida’ is arguably one of the most adventurous and spectacular treks in Latin America. Built by the Tayrona people, this ancient city was abandoned around the time of the Spanish conquest and was only rediscovered in the 1970s. Hidden in the depths of the Sierra de Nevada de Santa Marta Mountains, this archaeological site is accessible only by foot and takes four or five days to complete.
Valle de Cocora
One of the most striking and instantly recognisable areas of Colombia, Valle de Cocora is an incredible setting for a hike. Nestled between the town of Salento and the Los Nevados National Park, this vast valley is home to Colombia’s national tree, the gravity defying Quindian wax palm. Towering over 60 feet high, these giant trees are simply extraordinary and discovering this unique ecological region is best done on foot.
Providencia and San Andres
Teeming with marine life, Colombia’s Caribbean coast is a fantastic place to snorkel and scuba dive in South America. Spot rays, sharks, turtles and hundreds of tropical fish in the warm, crystal-clear waters of the region as you join the dots between the islands and dive sites of this UNESCO recognised biosphere.
