Colombia's biodiversity can be equivalent to 20% of the planet's total

This is a 7 days’ adventure that will take us to enjoy one of the ultimate borders of the biodiversity in Colombia. We will do an exploration by the south-west part of Santander Department, to see one of the best well-kept secrets of the incredible nature of this department, located in 3 different towns: Florian: El Peñón and Guadalupe.

In this places we will visit, rivers, waterfalls, underground rivers, amazing fog and unique karstic forests.

The Second place after Florian will be: El Peñon, we will be there another two nights, a small town of only 500 inhabitants that host and spectacular landscape in its surroundings, is a karstic area, that host the biggest caves in Colombia, this place has an Andean mountain forest that is unique due to its mixture with the karstic formations that hides all the waters of the region underground.

To visit Guadalupe Santander, we have to deviate from the main road between Bucaramanga and Bogotá 24kms in Oiba. This place is a well preserved colonial style town surrounded by a less dramatically formed landscape, only having smooth hills, crossed by gentile rivers that looks like paved because the bottom is only one big rock in a reddish colour where the water will be carving with the pass of the years forming some pot holes like pools in which we can enjoy and relax. In this place we can do some easy hiking to visit the different waterfalls and rivers around the nice and kind town.
