Honestly, I’m not much of a hiker.. I’ve only been on a few in my life ! But my wonderful guide @homarofortika of @wayacanexperience made this 5h hike through the Envigado mountains so enjoyably educational ✨ He taught me about the rich history of the land we were exploring, like the ancient commerce routes we walked that are still very well preserved ! I learned about the lush flora in this incredibly biodiverse area, and how all the organisms here work together to keep this ecosystem flourishing. Would definitely recommend!

Excellent experience, Mateo super attentive and informative regarding nature, flora and fauna, he is genuinely in love with the beautiful environment and made me see his complete perspective on the entire tour. I only managed to take the short route but I will definitely return to take more routes and explorations with him.

Tour was amazing and very insightful. Guide spoke english very well and was able to help us navigate after getting lost. Again tour was great but the 1hr + commute was a little draining.

Everything was amazing. Thank you for being such a good guide.

Amazing! So relaxing, so beautiful! The sweetest people :)
