Description

Much more than a tour: A unique experience to discover the fascinating Tungueka indigenous village in one of the most beautiful places in the Colombian Caribbean. Enjoy an ecological walk through the surrounding mountains of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta followed by a refreshing river swim in the middle of the nature reserve. Upon arrival, you can interact with one of the oldest indigenous tribes in the area (the Kogi). The Kogi are descendants of the Tairona culture that flourished before the Spanish conquest. They didn't live much differently than today's Kogi. The Kogi base their lifestyle on their belief in 'Aluna' or 'The Great Mother,' their creator figure, who they believe is the force behind nature. The Kogi understand the earth as a living thing and see humanity as their 'children'. On the way to the indigenous village of Tungueka you can see the majesty of the Santa Marta Sierra Nevada mountains. The peaks are only 45 km from the Caribbean coast. This makes the mountain range the highest coastal mountain range in the world.
