Exotic Wildlife & Unique Landscape!

During this 4-day Colombia tour, you will discover the remarkable nature, landmarks and culture the Colombian Eastern Plains, or Los Llanos, has to offer. Go horseback riding through the savannahs while viewing spectacular flora and fauna, then take a river boat and enjoy the spectacular surrounding landscapes from the water, in addition to hiking along waterfalls and trails. 

This beautiful natural region, located to the east of the Andes Mountain Range, is crossed by many rivers and lakes, turning this vast plain into a spectacular mix of landscapes, flora and fauna. Los Llanos is also recognised by its extensive ranches, where you will stay overnight and enjoy the most beautiful sunrises and sunsets. This Eastern Plains Tour is definitely the most appealing destination for curious travellers wanting to explore new sceneries and environments.
