Camilo Ortega

I'm an amateur runner and cyclists, traveling to different destinations to participate and organize sporting events made me realize the close link between sports and traveling and I got hooked by it. Traveled to Australia fo a Masters Degree in Tourism and came back to Colombia mainly to develop cycling trips in the country. Got involved with The Colombian Project and here we are, having the great opportunity to show my country to people and to help them enjoy 100%

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"I'm specialized in sporting and adventure tourism, mainly in the Andean region of Colombia. Road and mountain biking, hiking, trekking and a good mix with culture, history an politics of Colombia are my strengths. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"Traveling is in my blood, traveling around Colombia when I had the change, short or long trips, with friends or alone; having the experience to get outside of Colombia to countries in North and South America started to grow in me a passionate traveler. I became addicted in learning new things and open my mind every time I traveled, is a feeling that gets stronger every time you go and visit a new destination and is something I enjoy facilitating for others."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"1.5 Years in Australia changed my life and the way I used to see life. Connecting with people from all around the world, traveling around Australia and Asia, blew my mind. Understanding differences between cultures, getting involved in many different experiences and having enough time to relate with people made me understand how traveling really makes people happy and that I wanted to be part of it."
