Beautiful Tobia is often overlooked and under-visited but it is a firm favourite of The Colombian Way. Consider it Cundinamarca’s adventure playground, and at an altitude of only 650m it is an ideal place to escape to from Bogotá with its average 25ºC temperatures.

Located close to La Vega in the province of Gualivá, a short 74km from Bogotá, Tobia is the ideal retreat for a couple of days. Nestled in a green wooded valley the town and its surrounding fincas are a mecca for adventure sports including rafting, kayaking, rappel, canopy, mountain biking and more.

What makes Tobia an ideal sporting destination is the Rio Negro which runs straight by the village. The village also has great tourism infrastructure built around its outdoor activities, great walks, nice restaurants and superb fincas.

Tobia’s low elevation and warm climate mean you will be exposed to a whole new world of tropical plants and bird species.


You leave Bogotá either with private transport that we can arrange for you or on a public bus from either the Terminal de Transportes or Estación Calle 80. We recommend two nights in Tobia and your accommodation will be in an idyllic finca next to the Rio Negro.

Your finca has simple accommodation, al fresco dining an outdoor kitchen and a great relaxation area to wile away the warm hours in a hammock. Breakfast will be served each morning in the garden and you can decide which of the outdoor activities appeal to your tastes.

Your programme also includes 2 activities, rafting down the rapids of Rio Negro and rappel

In your free time, be sure to take a walk into Tobia village for lunch and to amble alongside the river.
