Quindio, located in the Andean region, a place full of opportunities, with a huge diversity on natural features such as volcanoes, snowcapped mountains, paramos, cloud forest, lagoons, valleys and plateaus. And Colombia, one of the richest countries in flora and fauna diversity, has opened the doors of tourism for the last past years, putting 1.500 species of fauna and 3.000 species of flora at high-risk in the Quindio.For Crested Outdoor and beyond, use our Salento tour itinerary planner to get the most from your Salento vacation.
On the other hand, we are conscious about the need of kick-start projects about conservation and awareness; enrolling the people with the places on our tours, we could leave progress, development and encouragement behind.
Cocora valley is one of the most visited places in the Quindio region, owned by some families, the area is been exploited with just one attractive: Horse riding tours and lazy hiking tours in between the mud. Decreasing the possibilities of experience the whole diversity of the land.Our tours were designed to let the traveller recognize the majesty of the valley; lodging in farms, nature reserves and remote places high above 3000m (9.843ft) in the territory of Los Nevados National park. Make your choice.
The idea of expedition is “remoteness” and “self support” we are going in to the deepness of Los nevados National Park, making our days into the Backcountry as our home. Is a 2 to 4 days trip. We are specialized hikers in ultralight backpacking so we can show you a much better way to do it. Don’t forget the main one “leave no trace”.
Even though the Tolima volcano, located in Los Nevados National Park, is not the most difficult climb you ever achieved, the approach is very demanding and one of the most difficult task of the climb. Gaining 1.000m (3.281ft) per day of a four-day trip, ending in a snowcapped summit of 5.220m (17.126ft). Take a look on your capabilities and give it a try!

Diego was probably the best tour guide i or my partner had ever had. He was incredibly knowledgeable, was well acquainted with both the area and the locals and answered all our questions before well in advance, immediately before and during the trip. Cant recommend him enough - onna five star system hes 100. Context - we did the Caldera loop trek in early November. It was a la nina year so wetter than usual but overall still so much fun. Highly recommend - the paramos are beautiful
They organized a trek last minute in less than a day after Paramo cancelled on me, they were great for the long walk through Los Nevados
