In Pereira and its neighboring municipalities you can go on unforgettable tours, whether by bike or on foot, on which you will travel along beautiful natural paths whilst enjoying a significant number of bird sightings, amongst which a great variety of species are endemic. This guarantees a unique experience in the heart of an ecosystem rich with wildlife, in protected areas or regional natural parks which are an important part of our heritage.
Risaralda: A model forest for the world. 36% of the departmental territory is a designated protected area, which means that 145,000 hectares have been converted into national, regional and municipal parks and specially treated areas which allow ecosystems to be kept in balance and the biological diversity of the region to be preserved.
Walking or using the bicycle as a non-polluting means of transport is a way of helping to conserve our model forest. Tours such as the trips to the “Valle de Cocora” in Quindío and “Cascada los Frailes” in Parque Regional Natural Ucumarí and Santuario de Flora y Fauna Otún Quimbaya, or the "Howler Monkey Route" in Parque Regional Natural Barbas - Bremen are the best options for seeing beautiful birds and enjoying other attractions such as waterfalls, crystalline rivers and the presence of howler monkeys and other wild inhabitants of the zone.
