Active Colombia – A Wild Frontiers Adventure
After years of notoreity, Colombia is now recognised as one of the most culturally fascinating and biologically diverse countries in all the Americas. This exploration of Colombia’s nature and culture combines its two major modern cities with its two most beautiful colonial villages, all the while taking you deep into the great natural landscapes that surround them. Discover lands filled with waterfalls and sacred lagoons, páramo and deep river canyons, where time has stood still and longstanding communities and traditions have endured.
Begin in Medellin, by far the country’s most innovative and progressive city, set in a long valley against the stunning backdrop of two Andean mountain ridges.
Travelling north into the Andean heartland, you then travel back in time to the quaint Spanish colonial towns of Barichara and Villa de Leyva. Here you can immerse yourself in the natural beauty of these lands, hike to glacial lakes and canyon waterfalls and discover the unique ecosystem of paramo.
This great adventure ends with a walking tour of the capital, the vibrant economical and artistic hub of this “off-the-beaten path” South American gem.
