Lost City Trek -Ciudad Perdida 5 days from Santa Marta or Taganga

The Lost City Trek Colombia is one of the Colombian highlights for backpackers and outdoor lovers. This tour is operated in collaboration with Sierra Nevada native communities, so you will support the local economy while enjoying this amazing hike. At Howlanders we are travelers as you do, so we really know how to make the most of this experience: good guides, a good atmosphere, good vibes, and fellow travelers, so we all together enjoy it to the fullest.

Be aware that this tour is not demanding when thinking about altitude or distances, but the conditions of the jungle make it a little harder. This effort is worthy and you will experience it once you get to the Lost City, which has remained virtually untouched for centuries.
