Why this trip ?
From Bogotá to Medellin, this tour is a marvel for travelers in search of adventure! Our Amazon tours intentionally neglect the more commercial tourist sites, offering a more authentic adventure that is representative of the tri-border (Colombia – Peru – Brazil) heart of the Amazon rainforest. The Quindio’s paramillo is a mountain in the Los Nevados Natural National Park which offers perhaps the best panoramic view from its summit (4750m). The Pacific is tropical rainforest, mangroves, virgin beaches, surprising biodiversity, whales and black communities of African descent. In short, this journey is made up of three extraordinary main lines.
