San Gil & surroundings

San Gil is a little in colonial village in the department Santander. It is more than just a nice little village in a beautiful area as it is also the ideal starting point for several extreme sports like white water rafting, abseiling, cave tours, parasailing, trekking etc. Even if you are not so adventurous San Gil and the Chicamocha Canyon area are worth a visit. The colonial villages like Barichara and Guane, the amazing views during a walk or a when riding a bike and the many hotels outside the village make San Gil a perfect place for everyone that is looking for a special destination.

There is so much to do in the area of San Gil that you can spend easily a week or 2 weeks in the area without getting bored. For this program we choose a 5 day program starting in Bogota and a big dose of adventure. That is what San Gil and the area is famous for and that is why we choose for this program. But of course it also possible to organize any custom made program where the client decides how much adventure will be included in the program, with more natural and cultural activities.

Important: White water rafting might be the most well known activity in San Gil and this is an activity you can´t miss. The white water rafting in this program is suitable for young and old and you don´t need any special experience to participate. It is possible to choose for white water rafting for more advanced. Also the activity parasailing is suitable for young and old as you always do a tandem flight with an experienced professional. All mentioned activities are done with professional equipment and guided by experienced professional guides. Always listen very well to the instructions before engaging in any adventurous activity.
