    It's an amazing place, wonderful activity to do on the coffee. It requires preparation, with good calorie feed at least a week before, no liquor, good equipment: footwear grip, at least two layers of thermal clothing including waterproof. If you have knee problems it is best to avoid this rise. The evil of height is common, nothing to not recover with good rest and hydration. Thank you very much for the support

    Excellent experience, the tour was great, take the plan from pereira with one-way and return, although it is a fairly long travel up the snow and very tiring since it requires very good physical condition I recommend it completely, also was able to book my hotel in the city of pereira by https://colombiatours.travel I think it was a super great experience, thank you.

    Spectacular
    I made a visit with ecosystems Travel, in the city of Manizales. A beautiful place to visit, with very beautiful landscapes.

    Very responsible and helpful guides. We took the tour to the Nevado de Santa Isabel. The plan included transportation in 4 X 4 trucks, run by very friendly drivers, breakfast before starting the ascent, snack and lunch. All of excellent quality.

    Guides so that always in charge of travelers, and who also know the area very well.

    I recommend this experience to 100%.

    Since the beginning of the journey on the road to the Nevado Santa Isabel will begin to see the beautiful scenery, between the mountains and the trees begin to take a look of our snowy white peaks and that would be our goal, that of the Santa Isabel.

    We started with the typical breakfast of bread, egg, arepa, chocolate and cheese. Then finally reach the starting point where it would be the beginning of an adventure to never forget.

    We started the climb with the right clothes, good water and some food for the road (peanut, fruit, sandwich and chocolate) along the way we meet people and you integrated with the group, we made several stops to recharge energy, you do not even get but see towards white that awaits you don't give, making the transition between a green and full of different species of flora, colorful start to reach a rocky part that indicates that you are close! This the prize.

    Eventually, arrive at what both had wanted, to the top! This beautiful place that allows you to take the best pictures, let the best memories and experiences and above all, have not yielded and satisfaction fulfill the goal.

    Highly recommended!

    It is demanding but very rewarding

    This tour is an experience that involves physical effort and mental, we were more than 4,000 meters above the sea level, is the nevado Santa Isabel. One without equal adventure, climb mountains, cross fells, see the landscapes of flora and fauna, to end with the breathtaking view of the glacier from Santa Isabel.

    I do not recommend it for people with heart problems. I recommend to wear, clothing for the cold, jacket, closed shoes, gloves preferably leather, dark glasses, moisturizing, sunscreen, maybe fruit, headache pills, and something light to eat.

    Excellent the nevado santa isabel in winter
    The plan is very good, please consider these factors:

    -We were in winter it rained us all the way. bring jacket, leather gloves, if you can put bags on top of stockings as it is very cold and prevent them to get you wet. It is important to good shoes. There are a parts where there is a lot of mud where we slid several times. Normally you are beyond the rain tent.

    -The best of go in winter is that since the half of the ascent you already start to see landscapes with snow and you don't have to get to the top to see the glacier. The landscape is unique and speculate.

    -You need good physical condition, most of the time all the time is uploaded, furthermore we have to add the height where you start at 4100 meters and finish to the 4700 above sea level there is consistent rain.

    An incredible challenge

    Climb the nevado Santa Isabel is a wonderful challenge. I recommend going one day Saturday if it is not a public holiday, or Sunday if Monday is a holiday, since they will wake up very tired the next day if that should work. The guides seemed very organized and attentive during the trip, something very beautiful that the members of this agency have is brotherhood, along the way some of the transport is blocking by the mud and everyone expected and thus helped were in other vehicles. go with boots, carry plastic bags so they put up stockings, and prevent your feet getting wet. Courage, know the nevado Santa Isabel. The approximate time of the entire route including movements in trucks, round-trip: 12 hours.

    THE BEST EXPERIENCE.

    A very difficult challenge. We were friends, 3 couples. We collected in Center of Pereira, from there we went to Santa Rosa, and started the journey. Continue to a site as a farm which gave us a rich breakfast. Then we got in the truck to begin the journey on foot. The first 300 meters. We thought that we would not be able to. Thanks to the guides who constantly encouraged us and told us what to do and how to breathe. They explained to us the flora and fauna in the stages of the tour. For his words of power and recommendations we managed to reach the top.

    Beautiful experience
    Excellent activity, a view with spectacular landscapes of snow. You need to have good physical condition, are many people returning before reaching the top. I took the plan with one-way and return from Pereira is a long walk and exhausting but worth much, we left at 4:30 AM and be returned type 8 PM.
