The Beginning

Colombia Paddlers was formed out of our passion for the environment and conservation. After spending most of our life working and travelling all over the world. In remote, strange and unique locations we found Colombia and some of its hidden treasures. So after many years of living and touring Colombia we decided to set up Colombia Paddlers and this led us to buying our equipment and hitting the waterways, coastlines and Jungle to get up real close with nature and its offerings.

Our Vision

We noticed that travelers were very familiar with such possibilities of a city break to Medellin or Bogota or stay in the coffee triangle, but the incredible opportunities for canoeing the rivers and lakes and the options for fishing in some magnificent and remote locations, or to explore some of the remote, unusual and breathtaking scenery on horse back or by foot were comparatively little-known or thought as too dangerous or difficult. We came back with a plan to share some of these incredible journeys and now we offer trips to some of these truly amazing, unique places. With time we shall offer even more places to be amazed and wowed by. We are well versed in our fields with over 3 decades of canoeing and outdoor pursuits experience in remote and hard to reach areas and led many expeditions within the British military and student groups. We strive to impress and leave you in total amazement and to make you want to return again and again. As an English speaking company we offer tours in English so you do not have to speak Spanish but also in a safe and sometimes challenging environment so you can experience Colombia's wilderness and all its natural beauty.

Safety First

We are a licensed tour operator within Colombia and registered with the National Tourist Authority and also one of the first companies to approach ProColombia and the ministry in order to seek permissions to paddle, explore and fish most of Colombia's waterways, Parks and Lakes and to work with them to promote conservation legally. This has led us to have high safety standards and to maintain these with regular training and interaction with locals to gain their local knowledge and skills or to assist us in improving on our knowledge and skills. We follow the United Kingdom safety standards and conform to BS 8848 as well as following the local laws.
