From paragliding, to white water rafting, to canyoning and caving, Exploracion has it all and won`t dissapoint.
Typical excursions include white water rafting on River Fonce and River Chicamocha. There are various grades of rapids on different parts of the rivers. For slightly nervous first timers it might be worth trying the relatively calm class III rapids on the Fonce to get a taste for the action before going for the wild class IV rapids. However, providing you´re brave enough and a reasonably competent swimmer, anyone can bite the bullet and quite literally get thrown in at the deep end!

Rapelling is another one of the most pòpular activites in the area. There are some beautiful waterfalls which you can abseil down while feeling the full force of the water rushing past - not to be missed!
