Overview

We are white-water specialists. Our guides have international certificates like: INTERNATIONAL RAFTING FEDERATION (IRF), RESCUE 3 INTERNATIONAL and Red Cross first aid. We are professional guides with professional accreditation from the Colombian ministry of tourism. Our experience of over 20 years shows that we are the most qualified company to offer White-water rafting on class 5 rivers like the Rio Suarez. The safety and comfort of our customers is the most important thing to us, this is why our company uses certified equipment from internationally recognised brands. We also use boats with frame and oars to offer the best safety on our descents of rapids. We also have instructors like CESAR DIAZ, who represents international bodies to offer courses and renewal of internationally certified licences for SWIFTWATER RESCUE (rescue 3 International), training and certification of rafting guides (INTERNATIONAL RAFTING FEDERATION), and white-water kayaking courses. We also offer 1-3 day tours on the Rio Chicamocha, family trips on the Rio Fonce and hydrospeed (river boarding).

Great day out, exciting rafting but I never felt in danger, the skipper took good care of us. And they also provide a good lunch (fruit, chicken, potatoes). Well worth the money and good fun!

A wonderful experience. The rafting was so exciting and the scenery beautiful. Waiting at the end was a delicious lunch. They also provided photos and videos free of charge.

Even if you are fit and experienced this company excludes over 45s from white water rafting the 4/5 river. Don’t be fooled into doing the Fonce too boring for words. Don’t waste your money here.

The stretch of the Suarez river the tour is run on is perfect for rafting. There are almost constant rapids of varying levels so no dull parts just paddling along the river. The rapids will obviously depend on the time of year you go and...More

We’ve had a great time at Colombia Rafting Expeditions! The instructions were very clear, also in English. Besides receiving the instructuons upfront to the group, our instructor repeated the instructions also while sitting in the raft. Thanks again for the great experience!

Colombia is all about going with the flow! We booked this 15mins before the pick up time after an overnight bus ride.. Is there a reason you need to book in advance? They usually find a way to accommodate your needs.
