Hikers are spoilt for choice in Colombia: hiking trails stretch over mountain tops, pass through paramo landscapes, wind across deserts, weave through jungles and end in unspoilt beaches. Hike from the high Andean jungle to the páramo and visit the sacred lagoon of Iguaque, the source of Bogotá's water and birthplace of the Muisca mother god Bachué. Discover the natural wonders of the famous Tayrona National park, brimming with wildlife and rich biodiversity. Follow cobblestone trails and explore the depths of the Chicamocha Canyon, a landscape formed more than 60 million years ago from what was once a great sea. Climb the 1,200 stone steps to reach the lost city of Teyuna, accessed by an epic 4-day hike, and explore the hundreds of terraces and plazas carved into the mountainside that seem to float above the jungle of the Ciudad Perdida.

Equatorial proximity ensures consistent temperatures, although the diversity of landscape means that there is climatic variation depending on location. The most reliably dry season throughout the country runs from December to March, which is also a busy period for festivals and celebrations. Domestic tourism is a force to be reckoned with in Colombia, so if you wish to time your visit to coincide with any of the major events or national holidays (particularly Christmas and Easter) it would be wise to plan ahead.
