Separated geographically from the rest of the Colombia, where it’s borders meet with Peru, Ecuador and Brazil, there is the Amazon, one of mother’s earth natural wonders, the rainforest and the river.
Getting there means flying to Leticia from Bogotá. This remote city on the shore of the Amazon River is the starting point for excursions to the rainforest. A typical itinerary includes a stay at a lodge for a couple of days and an excursion to indigenous settlements. You will explore one of the largest and most diverse ecosystems you can find in the world. Hiking through the forest, observing birds, monkeys, paddle on the river and maybe seeing some of the pink river dolphins sounds like a great adventure, doesn’t it? Have a look at the options here.
If you are a real adventurer, your trip can be combined with a DC -3 flight, which is in the rural areas still a workhorse for cargo and passengers.
