CUP OF COFFEE MOTORBIKE TOUR

With this exciting motorbike tour, you will have the opportunity to visit two of the most important national parks of Colombia (Rio Claro and Los Nevados), get to know the beautiful cities of Medellin and Bucaramanga and enjoy an authentic cup of Colombian coffee in one of the must-seen regions of the country. This is an adventurous trip to get to know Colombia in a different and challenging way!

DAY 1 BUCARAMANGA- RIO CLARO NATIONAL PARK

Our motorbike tour starts in Bucaramanga, which is known as “the city of parks” or “the beautiful city of Colombia”. Bucaramanga is the capital city of the Santander region and it is where Colombian Dude operates from. We will have a short introduction about the tour before taking the road to the National Park of Rio Claro. It will be a nice ride through mountains and forests, with the last two hours riding along the amazing river Magdalena. We will stop at Pablo Escobar’s luxurious farm called ”Hacienda Napoles”. The place is the symbol of the violent times in which he ruled the drug business with his Medellin cartel. The famous entrance with a small plane and remains of the zoo he had once (that included different animals from all over the world) will amaze you. From the different species he brought to his farm over time, only the hippos remain at Hacienda Napoles.

DAY 2 RIO CLARO-GUATAPE

At the National Park of Rio Claro, we will do some caving and some hiking to enjoy the natural reserve and the beautiful landscape of the park. Afterwards, we will have an easy ride to Guatape. Guatape is a lovely lakeside town. Although it is an artificial lake, its beauty, relax atmosphere and amazing views make this place the favorite destination for people of Medellin to spend their weekends.

DAY 3 GUATAPE-MEDELLIN

In the morning, we will climb el Peñol, a giant rock 200 meters high is formed over 70 million years ago. Fell in love with the area by admiring the view from the top of the mountain. After lunch, we will be driving to Medellin. The road to Medellin is a pleasant way that offers a stunning view on the city on arrival. We will be stopping a few times to take some photos of the trip.

DAY 4 MEDELLIN

You will have the day to explore the city on your own. There are lots of plans to choose from, here we mention a few of them: Visit Santa Fe de Antioquia, a laidback colonial town near Medellín, take the tour of Pablo Escobar, visit the botanical garden or take the cable car uphill to visit the poor neighborhoods. We will be happy to assist you on your plans for the day.

DAY 5 MEDELLIN-SANTA FE DE ANTIOQUIA

Santa Fe de Antioquia is just two hours away from Medellin. The ride is a pleasant trip through beautiful landscapes of the Andean highlands. We will drive through the longest tunnel of Latin America before arriving to Santa Fe de Antioquia. The traditional colonial streets with nice churches, some lovely squares and white houses will give you an amazing experience and the opportunity to take great pictures of your trip. We will also visit the famous Puente del Occidente on the Cauca River, one of the longest and oldest suspended bridges of the region.

DAY 6 MEDELLIN-MANIZALES

We will ride through the Andes mountains, with a couple of stops on the way to stretch and to take some photos of the beautiful scenery. Manizales lies in the heart of the famous coffee region of Colombia and is located in the Cauca valley of the Andes mountain range.

On the way to Pereira we will stop at the “Termales de Santa Rosa”, thermal springs that are a perfect place to relax and reboot your energy. The 3 waterfalls (the largest is 170 meter high) will make the stop a great experience. We will arrive to Pereira later in the afternoon, a city with a young and vibrant atmosphere at day and night because of the thousands of students that come from different parts of the region to study at the main universities.

DAY 9 PEREIRA-SALENTO

It will be an easy ride to this little and lovely town. Salento is surrounded by beautiful nature and it is a great place to relax and enjoy. We will visit a working coffee farm.

The views are stunning, so don´t forget to take great pictures of your trip. Once we are back in the hostel, you can relax and chill out.

DAY 11 SALENTO-ARMENIA
