Behind the scene
Them, you and us.
Jules, a former professional kayaker, fell in love with the rivers of Colombia. His agency does its best to protect them. It starts by allowing travelers to explore them.
Ideal for active travelers who want to escape Medellín for 1 or 2 days and explore the natural wonders of Antioquia.

We have been traveling to Colombia since 2015. We did a fantastic 2-day rafting with Jules' agency.
Are these experiences a good fit for you?
Find out why!
Medellín is great. Guatapé and Santa Fé de Antioquia too. But what about all the natural wonders hidden in Antioquia? This department, crossed by the Andes mountains, offers great trekking, rafting, and kayaking opportunities. The best spots are hard to get to, requiring well-proven logistics. This is what Jules’ agency offers you. Accompany his team of sports and nature enthusiasts and live an experience that few travelers have had the chance to enjoy.

Off the beaten path
The most beautiful rivers and hikes are difficult to access and little known. Jules and his teammates were the first to open these routes. You’ll discover places that few people know.
In addition to his professional experience, Jules is surrounded by Colombian guides and international professional athletes — all certified and prepared to welcome you. You’ll be in good hands.
They protect nature
Because of corruption and greed, it is difficult to protect the natural beauties of Colombia. The agency has created a foundation to support local communities and make their voices heard. Your money is well spent.
Jules’ agency takes care of reservations, logistics, and authorizations. Your job? Walk, jump or paddle and enjoy!
They love Colombia
They are athletes who fell in love with Colombia (like us but with abs) and train local guides. They understand the culture, and they know how to adapt. You’ll be part of this great crew.
You’ll feel tired after a long day of walking or rafting. Jules offers comfortable private vehicles to take you back to Medellín. You will travel in good conditions.
To ensure the safety of the travelers, their guides have all received extensive wilderness medical training and are linked with outside services at all times, ready to provide urgent assistance if necessary.
The agency’s staff speaks English, French, and Spanish. Same for the guides who will accompany you on the ground. You won’t have communication difficulties.

Rafting | 1 to 3 days
The best way to discover the beautiful rivers of Antioquia. With your group, go on a rafting expedition on Rio Verde and/or Rio Samaná to cross powerful rapids. Depending on the option chosen and the month of the year, some of the circuits have rapids class 4 and 5. The most adventurous among you will decide to bivouac at the water’s edge to make the adventure last several days.
Hiking | 1 to 3 days
Although not as extraordinary as the hikes in the Nevados and Cocuy, the treks through the lush vegetation of Antioquia will captivate you. Discover little-known places such as the Páramo de Belmira, the Sanson and San Francisco areas, or the Melcocho River. On the way, you will meet amazing people and you will be able to cool down in beautiful waterfalls.
Cultural | 1 day
Not a fan of hiking and adrenaline sports? Because of his close ties to the people of Antioquia, Jules has discovered some ideal places to get to know the local culture. Visit a coffee farm in Medellín or Fredonia or a delicious cocoa farm. During these excursions, you will have the opportunity to chat with the owners over a hearty traditional lunch!
Kayak | 2 to 16 days
Jules and her team are kayaking pros. They offer classes adapted for all levels. Take your first class in Guatapé for two days or choose the 9-day course from beginner to intermediate. The advanced kayakers won’t be left out, with a 16-day trip among the most powerful rivers in Colombia. So, ready?
Paragliding | 1 day
The ideal plan for those who do not wish to make any effort and enjoy an exceptional view. Jules offers to organize a paragliding trip over Medellín. You can decide to go to San Felix on your own or use their private transportation. Don’t hesitate to combine this activity with a rafting trip — in that case, you’ll fly from Cocorna.

⭐ Jules’ reviews ⭐
I'm not the only one to love Jules' agency.
We spent 4 days rafting with Jules' agency on the Rios Verde, Samaná, and Claro. This was by far the highlight of our Colombia trip! Mael and Jonathan were expert guides and paddlers, and immediately made us feel like part of the team. The rains caused a landslide that made our initial itinerary impassable, and they promptly created an alternative plan that was equally adventurous, and highlighted a unique and scenic river that would have been otherwise completely off our radar. We loved exploring small canyons and tributaries, swimming in waterfalls, and even spelunking in a marble cave!
Scheduling activities and trips with Jules' agency couldn’t have been easier. We spoke through WhatsApp and they made all expectations and details very clear. Payment was easy and as for the trips themselves… unforgettable! The rafting trip couldn’t have been more fun. Beautiful hike and a fun ride down the rapids. Will recommend everyone to go through them if you’re looking for some adventure while in Medellin.
