The Upper Magdalena River Valley Things to See and Do

follow us

Traveling around the Upper Magdalena River Valley is typically an unconventional route, but it is one that will not disappoint. In the same day it is possible to revel in the striking contrasts between the Tatacoa Desert and the rock sculptures in San Agustín. For walkers, hikers, climbers and rafters, the region includes the Combeima Canyon, the Nevado del Tolima and the rapids on the Magdalena. For the non-outdoorsy types, there are plenty of cultural pastimes around, many of which can be found in Ibagué. Those who appreciate good food shouldn’t pass up trying a tamale tolimense (a regional tamale made with meat, rice, peas and egg wrapped in a banana leaf).
