Preparing for your Colombian adventure: What to pack for hiking in Colombia

Getting Ready for Your Adventure in Antioquia: What to Wear for Hiking in Colombia!

If you’re planning to explore the majestic mountains and lush landscapes of Colombia, it’s important to prepare properly to make the most of your hiking experience. Here are some suggestions on what clothing to bring:

1. Layers: The weather in Colombia can vary, so it’s advisable to wear layered clothing. This will allow you to easily adapt to temperature changes during your hike. Include a breathable shirt, a sweater or lightweight jacket for cooler weather, and a waterproof layer in case of rain.

2. Comfortable pants: Opt for lightweight and comfortable pants that allow you to move easily. Trekking pants or sports pants are ideal for hiking, as they are breathable and quick-drying.

3. Proper socks: A good pair of hiking socks is essential to keep your feet comfortable and protected during the hike. Look for socks that wick moisture away and prevent blisters.

4. Appropriate footwear: Choose a sturdy and comfortable pair of hiking shoes that offer good support for your feet and ankles. Opt for waterproof footwear if you plan to hike in wet terrain or in the rain.

5. Hat or cap and sunglasses: Protect your head and eyes from the sun with a cap or wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses with UV protection. This will help prevent sunburn and keep you cool and comfortable during your hike.

Also, remember to bring along a comfortable backpack to carry water, snacks, sunscreen, insect repellent, and any other essential items you may need during your adventure. With the right clothing and gear, you’ll be ready to enjoy the natural beauty of Colombia while immersing yourself in an unforgettable hiking experience. Happy hiking!

Exploring the majestic mountains during our hiking trips, safety is paramount. 

Therefore, it's important to follow some key recommendations

1. Always travel with travel insurance: medical expenses, theft or problems with your plane on a trip can be an additional expense you didn’t count on, so it’s best to take out travel insurance.

2. Avoid venturing into deep rivers without the guide’s supervision. While it may be tempting to take a dip, it’s crucial to steer clear of areas with strong currents or unknown depths.

3. Always pay attention to the guide’s instructions. They know the area and can provide vital information about potential hazards, safe routes, and proper mountain etiquette.

4. Respect wildlife and the natural environment. Avoid littering and pick up any trash you find along the way. Additionally, keep your distance from local fauna and refrain from disturbing their habitat.
