This trek is extremely hard (especially as a first trek) because of the conditions (heat, rain, mud, mosquitoes, humidity...) so you will need an excellent guide to help you through! Juan Diego from Expotur is the one. He gives you tips when you're struggling and gives a lot of explanations, historical and cultural. He's the best guide we have had... More

4 days and 3 nights was rather intense with the humid heat and a lot of up and down hill. As we understood it the only difference to the 5 day tour was the last day splitting the 6-7 hour hike in two days, making it well worth the extra effort the last day. Always, always, always wear mosqito repellant... More

The trek is absolutely beautiful from beginning to end, and the Ciudad Perdida is uniquely stunning in that it's so remote from any form of modern day developments - you really feel as though you're at the heart of nature. Our guide Juan Diego really brought the entire experience to life by sharing stories, myths and traditions with us along... More

We did the 4 days tour to the lost city last week and we had an amazing time. The tour was well organized and the food was great. The hike is challenging, but the views and things you learn about the region make all the sweating worth it. Our guide Jose Garcia was very knowledgable and he treated all the... More

My four days on the Ciudad Perdida trek made me appreciate Colombia even more. English speaking guide Juan Diego was able to share the stories of this country's history as well as from the indigenous tribes in a very passionate way. The trek was gorgeous and challenging, but very doable, even for someone who never sports (like me). The group... More

Wonderful trek, fun and varied route, nice natura, good varied group and good food. Interesting history, good guide. It was a bit hard, even though I am really used to trek. But everybody can do it, we had a lot of unexperienced trekkers in the group. An two kids! 10 and 13 years old.

Overall, this experience is definitely worth doing, especially if you like natural beauty, ancient cultures or hiking. Be prepared for the workout it can be challenging. Our group guide Juan Diego was very passionate about the los city and the indigenous tribes living in the area and he transmitted this successfully to us. Amazing job!
