Rafting expedition into the wild
In Medellin, a private vehicle picks you up at your hotel and drives you to San Francisco. It takes approximately 2h30.
There, in this tiny town nestled in the mountains of Antioquia, you will meet the guides from Expedition Colombia. All the equipment is already packed in a 4×4, but they will do a final check with you to see if you’re missing anything.
After a short drive with the jeep, there is a final section where you must walk down into a canyon through a beautiful trail to reach the river. They put the deflate rafting and camping gears on donkeys. Yes, it’s a lot of logistics for the guides, but don’t worry. They’re used to it.
After 2 hours, you can start sighting the crystal clear river. Let’s inflate to rafting! Once again, Expedition Colombia takes care of everything while you take a quick dip in the rapids. Your certified guide gives you the final instructions. Then, it’s time to get on board for 2 days of adventures. This activity allows you to discover outstanding sceneries made up of giant trees, deep canyons, and a mighty river that few people are aware of.
During this thrilling rafting experience, you will pass by many rapids, – class 2,3 & 4 – meet some gold-seekers who ride artisanal and flimsy boats and stop various times on the shore to jump from rocks. Besides, keep your eyes open when paddling. There are plenty of birds and other animals to observe.
At the end of the first day, you stop at a base camp. Your guides will settle the hammocks, make a bonfire, and cook dinner. To spend the night surrounded by lush vegetation is the final touch that makes this adventure memorable. Everyone sits around the fire, gives its first impressions, listens to scary animal noises.
Unfortunately, all the good things come to an end. The team will drive you back to Medellin (3h) in the afternoon of the 2nd days.
Add this 2-day rafting experience to your Colombia itinerary if you want to mix extreme activity, mind-blowing sceneries, and night into the jungle.
