Los Nevados in Spanish translates to the ‘snowcapped’. The traverse of the national park came about when travelling with friends in Colombia. The trip was an 80km four day hike with a 4,950m shield volcano summit on day three. (Volcano Santa Isabel) We set out from Manizales with supplies and climbing gear and ended the trek in the popular town of Salento. The trip winds you past spectacular lakes and volcanoes, plus you get to experience the local lifestyle in home-stays.

Speak to the guys at Kumanday Adventures in Manizales – they put the trip together. Great value and they did an excellent job, especially our guide Carlos. Our group had a great time winding our way through volcano country, and we’ve got great memories of the wild Colombian landscape.
