Nevado Santa Isabel 4965 M

COL-23 / 7-day trip / Grade: F

Los Nevados National Park is located in the central Andes mountain range, in the traditional coffee area of Colombia. The protected area covers an area 583 km2 and four states: Caldas, Risaralda, Quindio and Tolima. There are three major snow capped volcanoes: Nevado del Ruiz (5321 m), Nevado del Tolima (5221 m) and Nevado del Santa Isabel (4965 m) and several alpine lakes and amazing colourful landscapes.

Our 7-day program to climb Nevado Santa Isabel (4965 m) is one of the most popular itineraries, as we not only set focus on the climb, but also on the local culture. A visit to Salento, one of the best-preserved coffee towns in the coffee area and the trek by the Otun river valley up to the national park, provides a fantastic acclimatization and a good insight into the area’s biodiversity, life style and changeable landscapes of the park. To end this active program, there is a final day at a productive coffee Hacienda with world-class coffee and perfect spot to rest and enjoy the wonderful weather!
