Are you ready for a walk on the wild side? The department of Guainia is one of Colombia’s most sparsely-populated and least visited regions. It is located in the dense Amazonian jungles of the east and on the border with Venezuela. Most of this department is covered in dense jungle and crisscrossed by mighty rivers like the Orinoco, Atabapo, Guaviare, and Inirida. Most of the population consists of distinct Indigenous groups such as the Puinave, Curripaco, and Sikuani.
On this immersive tour to the region known to locals as “The Kingdom of the Great Snake,” you will visit a diverse range of ecosystems and Indigenous communities. During the adventure you will learn about Indigenous cultures and customs, as well as gastronomy and artisanal crafts.
The trip also includes two nights camping on a stunning white-sand beach off the Inirida River, a visit to the iconic Mavecure Hills, and a tour of the Estrella Fluvial, the meeting point of the Guaviare, Atabapo, and Orinoco Rivers.
