Why did you start Adrenaline Addicts?
After travelling in Colombia extensively in 2015 my business partner and I fell in love with Colombia and decided to make it our new home. We set out to create top-quality tours, with a little something for everybody. Our goal since day one has been to make every trip perfect for the group and make sure everyone is leaving with smiling faces.
What makes your trips unique?
Our all-inclusive tours take you all over Colombia; Whether you are looking to ride through the jungle, tear up the sandy desert, or just cruise along the beautiful Caribbean coastline.
We only work with top of the line hotels, hostels, and restaurants to ensure that our clients have the best service at every stop, and will make memories that last a lifetime.

Meeting new people with the same passion. We get people from every walk of life, and its great to see everyone bond over a common theme
Can you tell us about a time one of your trips changed a guest’s life?
