I am totally in love with Colombia and I am happy to share my experience with others, so they can also discover this magical place. I like talking to the local people, inmerse in their life style, hear latin music on every corner, learn about the miracles of nature, observe the diversity and try new things. For me every day in Colombia is an adventure of its own and I am doing my best for you to have the same feeling during your visit.

What places and activities do you specialize in?

"Colombia! We organize custom made trips in the entire country, even to some very remote places. We started as a nature and adventure travel organizers but now, after more than 13 years in travel business, we can arrange any type of trip: incentives, luxury, family trips, small and big groups, filming crews, jungle expeditions, you name it. Still, our philosophy remains the same - the trips are tailor made and always with the intention to show the diversity and beauty of Colombia´s nature and people. Thus, even if you opt for a very traditional itinerary, we will make sure you get to see the real Colombia and meet it´s amazing people. "

How did you get involved in travel?

"Since my teenage years, I could not stay calm in one place - all I wanted was to travel and see the world. So I traveled and lived in several different countries and spent most of my free time guiding and helping friends to organize their trips. Until I came to Colombia more than 3 years ago and totally fell in love with it, so I decided to stay and keep exploring this country of infinite hidden gems. Now I share my experience with other people who are traveling to Colombia."

Please share a unique travel experience you will never forget.

"For me all of my trips are special, unique and unforgetable. But if I had to name one, the first one that comes to my mind is the trip to Colombia´s Guaviare region. We were riding an old moto by some muddy roads deep into the middle of nowhere for several hours in a storm when we couldn´t even open our eyes properly because of the strong rain. Then we hiked through the jungle up to a mountain and out of the sudden we saw this - thousands of years of history painted on massive rocks. At that moment it didn´t matter that we were soaked and tired - we just sat down and admired that powerful place."
