Help us build an EcoDome with sustainable materials in the heart of a natural park, designed as a space to rest and share the ancestral knowledge of the Muisca culture.

The accomodation is a nice and cozy house only for the volunteers in the middle of the natural park.
Please bring a sleeping bag.
There is a laundry to wash your clothes.

Volunteers will cook together. This is a perfect space to share recipes and have a culinary cultural exchange. Shopping is organized by the leader(s) and the park, but the volunteers might help. Vegetarian food option also available.
Please do not expect expensive/special ingredients (olive oil, nuts, etc), but the Colombian cuisine is rich in fruits, vegetables and 3x a week there will be meat in the menu.

The water heater depends on the availability of gas. On some occasions, hot showers might not be available, but in general there is hot water available.

You can learn about eco-agriculture and work in the agroecological garden.
During your volunteering you will try some typical dishes from the region and do activities such as walks through the reserve, zip-lining and the KYE MUYSUA, an ancestral experience workshop: Weaving under the tree of dreams in the company of Andean music, meditation and fire.

This natural park is an Andean cloud forest, in the middle of the mountains; therefore it can be cold and rainy, depending on the season of the year. The park is located close to Bogotá (1 hour approx.) where you can find many places to enjoy the Colombian culture.
In case you do not want to leave the park, we have some activities that you can do in your free time such as:
1. Night walks and wildlife watching (there is a guided tour on weekends)
2. Trekking inside and outside the park (e.g. visiting other village on trails)
3. Extreme sport and wellness activities: zip line, tree climbing, music therapy (must be agreed in advance with the areas, the park does not cover the cost of this activity)
4. Horseback riding (must be agreed in advance with the areas, the park does not cover the cost of this activity)
5. Bonfires
6. Birdwatching

• There is limited Wi-Fi (because there is only satellite internet in this remote area). It may only be used for basic needs, such as communication (some calls, messages, mails) and information (research, press), but not for large downloads, videos, streaming (music or movies), video calls, etc.

• Extra fee: 1.500.000COP (approx. 360 EUR). The extra fee includes pick up at the meeting point, T-shirt, food, accommodation, 1x zip-line, local insurance during the workcamp and certificate of participation.

• To enter Colombia, you must have a return ticket or a ticket that shows you are leaving Colombia.

• The activities require constant contact with nature; this means that the volunteer will be finding himself/herself using physical strength and getting his/her hands dirty to get the job done. It is good to know and understand that you can encounter rain, sun, mud and insects. In addition, to carry out the activities it is necessary to walk the different trails, which have steep slopes. Therefore, volunteers should be in good health and willing to walk the different trails.
