Coconuco Thermals & Biking

Thermal Springs & Cycling

Since 2009, the Coconuco biking trip has been departing almost every single day of the year and is now considered to be Colombia’s most popular (and longest running) biking trip. Guests are collected from the Caracol at 10am and driven to the indigenous mountain village of Cocouco (2,650m alt.) where they can bathe in the hot thermal waters.  
After a time in the springs, jump on the bikes and start the 30km leisurely ride back to the Hostel Caracol (1,700m alt). The route is mainly downhill on a paved road with very little traffic.  This trip is  designed for those with limited experience of cycling - there's no guide and so you can take as long as you wish to ride back to Popayan.

Purace Volcano Hike

Test your stamina on a 4,650m Active Volcano!

Puracé is not a technical climb, the ascent is gradual and on rocky, scree like terrain for the most part. The hike begins at 4,050 metres altitude and with your local guide you’ll hike for about 2 hours to the 500m-wide crater. 

If weather conditions are good, you’ll have great views of the steaming crater, the central Andean range with it’s chain of volcanic peaks and over to the coastal range of the Andes before making the descent. At this altitude however, weather conditions are very unpredictable and although we offer the trip all year round, you should always be prepared for wet, cold and windy weather conditions. 

The change in altitude makes this a tough hike and as everyone reacts differently to the effects of altitude, we recommend taking your time and keeping the guide informed about how you are feeling throughout the hike.
