Day 1: Fly to San Jose del Guaviare

Welcome to San Jose del Guaviare

Discover San Jose del Guaviare, a hidden gem situated in the depths of Colombia's Amazon rainforest. This vibrant town, surrounded by dense jungle and meandering rivers, offers an inviting experience in one of the world's richest ecosystems. Discover ancient rock formations and indigenous communities that make San Jose del Guaviare a gateway to the wonders of the Amazon. Explore breathtaking landscapes where towering trees shade winding waterways and vibrant wildlife thrive abundantly. Whether trekking through the jungle, visiting sacred indigenous sites, or simply marveling at the natural beauty, San Jose del Guaviare invites you to embark on an unforgettable adventure into the heart of the Amazon. Uncover the hidden treasures of this captivating corner of Colombia.

Puerta de Orion & Sunset Over Guaviare River

Embark on an enjoyable ecological hike through the astonishing rock formations of the 'Serranía de La Lindosa,' including the iconic 'Puerta de Orión,' a symbol of local tourism. Conclude your day with a stroll along San Jose del Guaviare's tourist boardwalk, where you can admire the enchanting regional sunsets.

Day 2: Cerro Azul | El Raudal

Today, explore Guaviare's most significant cultural and archaeological sites, starting with the ancient pictograms of Cerro Azul. These striking blood-red paintings, potentially up to 10,000 years old, were created by an unknown Indigenous culture and depict animals, humans, and geometric patterns on rock faces deep in the jungle. Recently made accessible after years of conflict, reaching Cerro Azul involves a short hike up a tepuy-like rock formation. Next, visit El Raudal via a boat ride along the Guayabero River canyon. While viewing the paintings, enjoy breathtaking panoramic vistas of Guaviare's jungles, marking the beginning of Colombia's vast Amazon rainforest.

Day 3: Guayabero River | Angosturas II

Experience a day filled with adventure. Embark on a boat excursion through the Guayabero River canyon, followed by an ecological hike past a breathtaking rock art mural leading to a stunning viewpoint. Conclude the tour with the option to swim at the 'Cueva del Amor' waterfall. Keep an eye out for the Toninas, the local name for pink dolphins (Inia geoffrensis), adding a unique wildlife encounter to your day.

Day 4: Natural Pools | Return Home

  • 1 Breakfast, 1 Lunch
End your final day in Guaviare with a visit to some natural pools. Hike approximately 2 kilometers to reach the site, where you can enjoy waterfalls and pools up to 4 meters deep for swimming. After lunch, head to the airport in time for your flight to Bogota.

The trip might have been the absolute best of our lifetime (thus far). We particularly want to commend our guide Peter in the Guilin area-he was so incredibly attentive, energetic, enthusiastic-and absolutely dedicated to ensuring that our meals were 100% vegetarian.
