Our Colombian adventure company...

...is a young entreprise founded in 2012. We want to take people to the most beautiful areas and riversides of this historic country. Our vision - creating several different tours for tourists - stems from the desire to make the beauty of Colombias nature accessible and to offer the best of Colombia's extreme adventure sports. We first started with the multiday trekking tour at the Canyon of Chicamocha. This trek promises views so georgeous and unforgettable that they are was worth every drop of sweat you spend to get to these special vistas away from the usual tourist roads.

As our company was growing our guides gained studied rappelling, caving and kayaking. We created our second tour: rappelling, river jumping and rock climbing at a wonderful river close to San Gil. More and more people came to join us on our tours and loved our nature sport activities. The enthusiasm of our clients inspires us to commit to high quality and to constantly improve ourselves and our tours. Most recently we created our multi activity bike tour that includes a city tour, biking and hiking through the region's most gorgeous surroundings as well as swimming and relaxing on a riverside paradise. Our tours are designed for everyone. Travelling alone, with friends or with family? In either case you can trust that we will make your time here unforgettable.

So let us take you to discover the beauty and spirit of Colombias best extreme sport activities, because the time adventure is now! We welcome our clients to stay one or two nights at our operation center in the mountains located a bit outside of the city of San Gil. If you are looking for a peaceful hostel surrounded by nature with a familiar atmosphere we have just the place for you.

Sustainable Tourism

Esteemed traveller,

please be aware of the Global Code of Tourism Ethics created by the World Tourism Organization and apply it on your travels.

Embrace the cultures and traditions that are unlike your own; your experience will be transformed and you will win the respect of the locals and they will accept you more easily. Be tolerant and accept diversity; observe the traditions and local practice of the place which you are in. Respect human rights. Any form of exploitation weakens the fundamental objectives of tourism. The sexual exploitation of minors is a punishable offence, both in the place where it occurs as well as in the country of residence of whoever commits it. Help to conserve the natural environment. Protect the wild flora, fauna and their habitat and do not buy products made using endangered animals or plants. Avoid taking pictures with the fauna, it may cause these species to leave this place and not return; keeping in mind that this will make it easier for the next group of tourists to observe these species.

Respect natural resources. The touristic activities should be undertaken respecting cultural, archaeological and artistic heritage. Do not be tempted to take archaeological artefacts, plants, flowers etc. If each tourist to visit were to take an artefact, very soon there would be nothing left to see. Your journey may contribute to economic and social development. Buy crafts and local products to support the local economy, and follow fair trade principles. When you barter, keep in mind the concept of a fair wage. Crafts are the most important reflection of local culture and identity, the benefit goes directly to the local population. Furthermore they are produced with very little impact on the environment and contribute to an increase in the value of local culture.

Keep informed with legislation to avoid committing an act that is considered illegal in the country you visit. Do not traffic in drugs, arms, antiques, protected species or any dangerous, prohibited products. In case of emergency do not attempt to control it yourself, immediately ask for help from the local authorities or the entities in charge of your tour. Maintain order and cleanliness in the places you visit and in this way avoid increasing the risks that threaten infrastructure and protected areas. Do not discard food waste in the places you visit. Take special care in protected areas, leftover fruit may contain seeds that will germinate and become a threat to local species. Enjoy and respect everything that makes your destination different and unique; its history, architecture, religion and its music, art and food.

Make sure to close water taps, turn off the air conditioning and the lights when you leave your hostel/hotel. In doing so you will be helping to save water and energy; valuable resources. Try to minimise the creation of waste and reject product that have unnecessary packaging, while opting to use products with recyclable packaging.
