Paramo hike, high Andean forest and Guadalupe mountain

Swap the city bustle for the natural splendor of the Andes Mountains on a downhill hiking tour that’s ideal even if you don’t go trekking regularly. Numbers are limited to 10 people, so you can hike at a relaxed pace that allows plenty of stops to admire the scenery and take photographs. Plus, exploring with a guide heightens your chances of spotting flora and fauna in Matarredonda Ecological Park.
