Colombia Walks & Treks + Highlights
We are the trekking experts of Colombia, and have spent years pioneering spectacular routes in high up in the Colombian Andes, employing a concept of service, comfort, safety and trip planning that has not been seen before in Colombia. We are the first and remain the best.
Cross jungle rivers and bathe in spectacular waterfalls and hot-springs, climb thousands of meters up through cloud forest and remote mountains, home to immeasurable wildlife and diversity to reach a landscape almost entirely unique to Colombia – the Paramo – a delicate, mystical land of volcanoes, clouds, lakes and frailejones.
We have a collection of mid-to-high mountain walks with excellent hotels at the end of each day or multi-day camping treks and expeditions – it all depends on our clients. Bilingual English-speaking mountain guides or a British tour leader accompany our trips.
We interact with local communities and obtain a unique insight into their lives. Our relationships are built on trust and respect which allow our clients to see how the isolated people of the Colombian high-Andes live.
