Quimbaya (Duration: 8 hours aprox.)

You are in the Central Andes of Colombia, where some rivers carry water down from the glaciers in the mountains. On this tour, we travel La Vieja River as Quimbayas (ancient indigenous community) did, sailing on rafts of guadua, a type of bamboo that has been called the natural steel. The rafts have technological improvements that human ingenuity has managed to ensure navigational safety, whilst down by the river, with the tranquility of the current and the thrill of small rapids. Learn the details of a guadual ecosystem, and enjoy a waterfall that will refresh you. On the river bank, have a picnic, enjoy the flavors of this region, under the cool shade of the bamboo.
