Article on Hostel Bookers: Why you Shouldn’t be Afraid to Trek Colombia

One of my articles was published by Hostel Bookers, so click here to read it in full.

Colombia is a trekker’s paradise for several reasons. It’s most obviously the baffling diversity of the place that lends itself to exploration on foot. Thanks to its position (near the equator but circling the Andes mountain range) Colombia boasts snow-capped mountains, idyllic beaches, dense jungles, barren deserts and much more. In some treks, you’ll experience all that in one go.

But it’s not just the scenery. Colombia is second only to Brazil in terms of biological diversity, and is infinitely easier to explore. The country is also home to an incredible amount of indigenous communities, from the Wayuu in the country’s wild Caribbean summit to the Amazonian tribes that inhabit the southern climes of Colombia.”
