Full description
Start your day of adventure by meeting your driver at your accommodation in the Poblado area of Medellin. From here, you will take a scenic drive to Cocorná, which is approximately 90 minutes away. When arriving, you will get to know your rafting team and professional guide, before taking a 30-minute journey to the Calderas River. You will be given your rafting equipment, ensuring you have everything you need for a safe and adventurous day. After everyone has been briefed it is time for the group to head into the boats and begin the descent. The route starts with rapids up to level 2 and gradually increases to level 3-4, ensuring an extra shot of adrenaline. Half-way along the route, there will be a stop at a beautiful spot to have water and snacks. The whole activity lasts for roughly 3.5 hours. Once you reach the finish point, you'll be taken back to Cocorná, where you can change into dry clothes, and have a beer or eat something at the restaurant. See the pictures of the experience, before returning to Medellin.

    This was the most amazing adventure. We rode, hiked, swam, walked, laughed and did the rafting. Received a crash course in rafting safety. Beautiful scenery. The knowledge base and friendly guides made the trip for us. Andre is the best. A must do for nature lovers.
