About
The Río Verde is a pristine, clear green river that carves through untouched Colombian rainforest. Start exploring by hiking down the jungle canyon with pack-mules. Raft over 30 KMs of the Rio Verde and the famous Rio Samana. We will stop to swim in a pristine waterfall, interact with local traditional gold miners and discover the countless species of endemic fauna and flora.

Authentic way exploring the beauty of Colombia
Jul 2021
This was an epic adventure. The trip on the river was over 30km long and had so much beauty and thrill. It was a perfect balance of calm cruising water to quick fast-paced rapids. Our guide Jonathan was very professional and awesome to be with. He kept the pace going well and made us all feel comfortable with his guidance and experience on the river. Saw plenty of waterfalls, enjoyed some swimming in the river and the action-packed rapids on the raft. Had a lot of fun on this one and would definitely recommend it. Expedition Colombia took good care of us all.

Exciting, funny, beautiful
Jan 2020
I had so much fun this day. It was so exciting and I had to laugh so much. At the same time the nature was beautiful and the guides were great. They were funny, authentic, sympathetic and what I especially liked was that they care about the environment and don't use plastic in the lunch provision! They know a lot about the nature and explain. Also they are very experienced. I felt in really save hands. I can only recommend it. The next day my muscles hurt - from laughing.

Incredible Day of Hiking and Rafting!
Jan 2020
Jonathan was an amazing guide and an expert on guiding us through the rapids!! Highlights of the day included four level-4 rapids, a hearty lunch wrapped in banana leaves, and a special surprise I won't spoil here. We got to see several waterfalls throughout the day. Our surroundings were lush green forests, clear water, and blue skies. I highly recommend this tour! All the guides worked really hard and made the day a blast for all of us.

Rio Verde Day Trip
Jan 2020 • Friends
It was just a perfect day! Everything was fine et well-organised. We took a van from Medellin to San Francisco (a typical village) then a 4x4 to join the starting point and enjoying a walk into the tropical Forest and finally reaching the river.
The descent was great, anyone on the river except ourselves. A sensationnal, peaceful and one of the best expérience of my Life ;).
Thanks a lot for your professionnalism and I will com back for sure !
