Today is guaranteed to be a real action-packed Colombian adventure. Our spectacular mountain bike ride starts at 6,000 feet (2,000 meters) and dives down into the second largest canyon in the world, the Chicamocha Canyon “The Grand Canyon of South America”. Passing waterfalls, coffee and tobacco farms, we will be riding to Jordan, a historic pueblo (town) 1000 feet above sea level. This is one place most tourists don’t have an opportunity to see! Here we stop at a refreshing natural pool to cool off, have a swim and enjoy a fantastic lunch.
After our lunch, we will experience one of the top activities in Santander – Whitewater Rafting. We’ll be leaving our bikes behind in order to conquer the Chicamocha River. Here we will experience the thrilling rapids and huge waves, starting with some Class III’s and getting increasingly larger until the last section of Class IV’s. Rafters have been known to experience huge waves, depending on the weather and the water levels. However, this is nothing to be afraid of; as in the case of wipe-outs, there are pools at the end of each rapid which makes this river a safe, commercial-grade run.
