The journey to Laguna del Magdalena (3327m), the birthplace of the Río Magdalena, 60km from San Agustín in the Macizo Colombiano, makes an interesting horseback-riding trip, which can be organized with a local guide. The region was historically infested by guerrillas but is now considered safe.

The trip takes three to five days depending on the route, and costs around COP$150,000 per person per day, fluctuating with group size.
