WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“Incredible Active Holiday adventure from La Guajira to Rafting the Rio Verde and every amazing sight in between! Jules and the staff at Expedition Colombia helped us to plan an AMAZING itinerary, but once we began our active holiday, the places we went and sights we experienced were beyond anything I could’ve dreamed. The entire trip was truly extraordinary. I figured Colombia was a beautiful place, but everything far surpassed all of my expectations!”

“These guys are organized and passionate about every aspect of the trip; from the rafting to the surroundings you pass through, and bringing awareness to the challenges facing Colombia rivers and ecosystems. Safety measures are fully covered, and rafters are fully equipped with all necessary gear, including a fulfilling lunch along the way. There is so much to take in, therefore a second go is practically a must and well worth it. “

“Fantastic hiking and rafting experience! We just concluded a fantastic experience with Expedition Colombia. Our family of four, including 2 teenagers, was picked up at our hotel, driven to the starting point for our excursion, then hiked 2 1/2 hours to the Rio Verde. It was a two day hiking and whitewater rafting experience, with an overnight at the jungle “camp”. It was a fantastic experience all around – the guides (Mael and Theo) were personable, experienced and knowledgeable. We loved the whitewater rafting on the Rio Verde and the experience of camping in the jungle. As with other reviewers on trip advisor, we swam in the river, jumped off rocks and ran the rapids. The water was warm and the scenery beautiful.”
