No matter what your skills and abilities are, we have a variety of treks in Colombia that suit all travelers. All half day hikes can be enhanced and extended into full day options, and the opposite is also possible. Here are some of our top new hikes & walks in Colombia:

  • Half day Cocora Valley, Acaime Reserve (Coffee Region): This 4-5 hour excursion via unpaved path is perfect for those who like a good walk but find altitudes and steep ascents difficult. You will visit the stunning Cocora Valley with its vast panoramas of Colombia's national tree, the wax palm, against the backdrop of the Los Nevados National Park. The vegetation is dense and rich with plant and bird life, and the final destination is the charming Acaime Reserve where you can get up close and personal with about 12 species of hummingbirds. There, enjoy the local favorite combination of hot chocolate accompanied by a slice of fresh cheese before heading back down the slopes.
  • Half day Encenillo Biological Reserve (Bogota): Located about 45 minutes from Bogota, a walk through this cloud forest is very special. The environment is created by a consistently lingering cloud or fog over the region, yielding exotic life such as orchids, hummingbirds, and other flora. While not intensely adventurous or tough, this half day hike does include some inclines and may be slippery in some parts due to the humidity and moisture natural to a cloud forest. The highest point of your walk will be about 3,200 meters above sea level and takes about 2 hours in total. A highlight for many of our travelers is a brief added excursion to a quaint organic farm locally run and which provides fresh vegetables to the nearby communities as well as Bogota.
  • Culinary & historical tour through La Candalaria (Bogota): Urban walks are also quite interesting! In Bogota, we can take you first to a very traditional market called Paloquemao where you can see giant stacks of produce such as bananas and potatoes that occupy all space between the floor and the ceiling. Afterwards, enjoy a typical Colombian breakfast as explained by your guide, and continue on to the bohemian La Candelaria district of the city populated with Colombia's top university students and Spanish history. At some point, try an ancient fermented beverage called "chichi" and also a dish of the day called a "corrientazo" based on your preferences, both of which are essential to any trip to Colombia. At last, you will discover the secrets of the cocoa plant and learn how to make chocolate candies and drinks. There are many more surprises to discover on this walk in Bogota so you'll have to experience it to believe it!
