The coffee region is one of Antioquia’s most beautiful landscapes with its lush hillsides. The region produces almost all of Antioquia’s coffee, which is around 15% of Colombia’s total coffee production. During this trip, you’ll learn about coffee production; you’ll never look at your morning cup of joe the same way again! You will also see and cycle Cerro Tusa, a famous, pyramid-shaped mountain where native Indians made offers to their Gods, and where the famous coffee-producer, Juan Valdez, got his symbol.
These days will take us down to 600 meters above sea level, where we will experience a different climate and see a new variety of flora and fauna.
We will then climb again to heritage towns, full of lively main squares and ancestral customs. We will be sure to share a cup of coffee or taste the local regional liquor with the locals who will always make you feel welcome.
Additional offers and highlights:
1. After cycling through the coffee plantations, you will visit a coffee farm to learn about the process of coffee production.
2. You won’t want to miss trying aguardiente Antioqueño, a local liquor, that we’ll share on the town’s main square with the farmers of the region.
“It was an even more wonderful trip than we were expecting! Thank you for introducing us to the most beautiful country and for helping us plan our own trip in a place that is one of the best in the world for cycling. All things have pros and cons and, after this trip, the only con is that there won’t be another cycling trip as good as this one!”
