  • Horseriding

    Bogotá Sports & Outdoors

    Having said all that it would remain a memorable experience for a while. All I did was being careful and getting scared of seeing the sudden steep slope of the hill while the horse was running. By the way, my no jacket and just t-shirt wasn that bad I am used to the Danish wind much worse than this. But don forget your jacket anyway.

  • Diving in Taganga

    I made eight dives with Poseidon, which is a PADI dive centre. Two dives cost 130 000 pesos and in that price all the equipment is included. The dives are made by boat and in-between them there is a short break at a shore were you will get some snacks (small sandwich, biscuits and coke). There is no toilet anywhere. Three days we used the big boat...

  • trekking in Colombia is great

    While Colombia is not yet as renowned for trekking as say Peru or Chile and its circuits not as famous as The Inca Trail or Torres del Paine, it is only because of the bad press the country has received over the years due to its notoriety as the kidnapping capital of the world. It surely has nothing to do with a lack of spectacular and varied...

  • Diving Isla Gorgona

    There is a dive centre on Isla Gorgona and when I visited one instructor (Alejandro) and one dive master (Jimmy) were working there. It is not cheap (like in Taganga), but actually quite expensive. To do the two morning dives was 140 000 pesos + 70 000 for equipment, and to do the afternoon dive was 95 000 pesos + 70 000 for equipment (July 2008)....

  • Adventures in San Gil

    In San Gil you will have to opportunity to try many exciting outdoor activities like rafting, rappelling, paragliding etc. I had first intended to go rafting, but as I had done that only a few days previous in Venezuela I decided to visit a cave instead.Together with a Swedish guy from the hostel I visited Cueva del Indio in the small town Paramo....

  • Hiking in Cocora Valley

    In Cocora Valley you can find several signed paths to hike and there are a few places where you can stay the night (one of them is Acaime). I only visited on a daytrip.A nice walk in Cocora Valley is to Acaime Natural Reserve and back. There are two different routes so you can take one going there and the other path going back. Just after the...

  • Paragliding in Medellín

    The wind currents in Medellín are very good for paragliding and the landscape is beautiful with green valleys. So I thought it was a good place for me to do a first tandem flight. I asked in the reception of the hotel for a good paragliding club and the receptionist made a telephone call to get a number which she gave me. I called and talked to the...

  • futbol colombia style

  • Trekking to Ciudad Perdida

    The trek to Ciudad Perdida is a six day trek, but many groups also do it in five days (I’m glad we didn’t). It takes three days to arrive to Ciudad Perdida and then there is one day for exploring Ciudad Perdida, and then two days for walking back. It is the forth day that many people skip. They see Ciudad Perdida in the afternoon they arrive and...

  • Fourth Day

    We spent this entire day visiting the city. Thre are still many of the ancient staircases and tracks left, as well as stone terraces, which were used for religious ceremonies.What is most fascinating about the city is its location on the slopes above a mighty jungle gorge, only accessible on foot.

  • The Ciudad Perdida Trek

    First DayFrom our starting point we hiked for three hours (two hours of which were uphill), mostly through jungle, passing some nice places for a swim on the way.Despite of the ascent, it was not too strenuous since we walked at a moderate pace and made some rests on the way.Close to the place were we stayed for the night was a waterfall with a...

  • Sixth Day and Resumé

    Another three hours (two downhill) to our starting point, and another two-hour ride back to Santa Marta.The Trekking Tour was magnificent and great value. Spending the night in hammocks was comfortable, our guide was very nice and the food was alright, too. Besides the standard dish, meat with rice and sandwiches, we were also provided with fresh...

  • Fifth Day

    The hardest day!!! We had to walk back Day 2 and 3 in just one day, which meant eight hours of walking, ten river crossings, and one hour constantly uphill (20% ascent, at least). I am sure i have never lost so much water in my entire life.

  • Third Day

    Another five hours to Ciudad Perdida. This section was the most beautiful, and at the same time the most adventurous of the tour. It involved eight river crossings and climbing over slippery rocks. The path led through dense jungle.After lunch we had to climb up an ancient staircase for almost one hour until we finally reached the lost city.

  • Second Day

    Four-hour hike through beautiful nature. We reached our destination at 1pm and spent the rest of the day on the river nearby.

  • Diving

    Colombia is an extreamly good place for scuba diving. The underwater world in the Caribbean is breathtaking. There are several dive-sites and dive-shops in the Caribbean region (Cartagena, Santa Marta, Islas del Rosario etc.), i personally love the little fishing village of Taganga, where there are quite a lot of PADI dive-shops and which is...
