The Camino Real is the hiking route that leads to the scenic Chicamocha Canyon, in Colombia. If you would like to hike under expert guidance, then this is your chance, join me for a 2-day trip and discover the amazing Colombian wilderness!

The Chicamocha Canyon is located within the Chicamocha National Park (also known as Panachi), in the department of Santander. Due to its spectacular landscape, dominated by huge red and orange walls and surrounded by green forests, this site is a famous tourist attraction.

On this 2-day hiking tour, we will explore all of the Camino Real, originally opened by the indigenous people of Colombia and later restored by a German settler. It crosses five charming colonial towns (Cabrera, Barichara, Guane, Villanueva, Jordan and Los Santos) ending at the awesome Chicamocha Canyon!

The 42.5km- trail will take us through farmlands, forests and even a ghost town. It includes uphill sections, so a good fitness level is necessary.

So, ¿are you up for this amazing hiking trip to the Chicamocha Canyon? Then contact me and let’s start planning your Camino Real adventure!
