THE RIDE

9:00 Road to Santa Rosa del Vagantes Community

You should know, that by doing this activity we are supporting a local community with a sustainable, green activity! The first half an hour of the day we ride to the community, descending from the mountain to the Vagantes canyon.

10:00 Beginning of hike

As we hike towards the river, we visit coca plantations and get information about this ancestral plant and its cultivation practices. We also get to learn about coffee and other medicinal plants and traditional crops grown in this region of the tropical andes.

10:30 Change and Equipment

We arrive to a dresser where we change into our neoprene suits and get instructed about the usage of the safety equipment. Vagantes provides only the best brand equipment, which includes the mentioned suit, helmet, carabiners, rope and figure 8.

11:00 Beginning of the Canyon Descent

Ready for the adrenaline? We will be rappelling down waterfalls, swimming in crystalline tropical mountain waters and jumping into ponds from 3, 5, 7 and up to 10 meters high! Near the end the waterfalls end and we advance by floating in the current!

14:45 End of the Canyon Descent

The Adrenaline is over! but the fun continues. It’s time to undress and return the equipment. Then enjoy the included box lunch, some rest and an exchange of experiences with your newly made friends. Then, we do a small hike to the road where our transport awaits.

15:45 The Drive Back

Fun is not over yet. The drive back allows for beautiful views of the Yungas mountains, as we climb back up to the town of Coroico. If it’s rainy the road itself may be an adventure!

16:30 Coroico, End of Tour

The group arrives back to Coroico. Depending on the package you choose, a transport will be awaiting to take you to La Senda Verde, or it will be here where your package ends.
