Travel through Los Nevados National Park next and see the Santa Isabel Glacier. Enjoy hiking through the Otun Quimbaya Flora and Fauna Sanctuary and the Cocora Valley, home to howler monkeys, hummingbirds and the tallest palm trees in the world.

Colombia is not just famous for its coffee but also for its varied geography, immense biodiversity and scenic landscapes. This hike will take you through an area of Los Nevados known for its collection of glaciated volcanoes and past the Cocora Valley.

Enjoy the beauty of the quaint town of Salento and its sprawling colonial houses. Learn more about the unique paramo environment, part of the alpine tundra ecosystem that is found only in Colombia, Venezuela and Ecuador.
