RIDE DESCRIPTION

Based on customer feed back we have decided to turn our most popular motorcycle route in Colombia into a full motorcycle tour through the coffee region. Almost all the travelers who come back say the same thing: "This is the perfect loop", the rest said "This place is awesome!" 

Visit the famous Piedra de Peñol in Guatape, Take a high altitude ride across Colombias longest road climb near the Nevado Ruiz Volcano, ake a coffee tour in Salento as well as walking through the Wax Palms in the Valle Cocora, and as always, enjoy all the twists and turns while riding through some of the amazing scenery in the world.

Another cool thing about this trip is that this route through Colombian "Eje Cafetero" or Coffee Axis is in the top 9 routes in South America, bucket list items not to be missed for the adventure rider! according to AdventureBikeRider.com 

ITINERARY

Day 1 - Medellin - Guatape 

Recommended Hotel: Zocalo Campestre

 

We will cruise out of town in the coolness of the early morning, just as the city begins to wake, onto the highway east toward the resort town of Guatapé. About a 2 hour ride from Medellin, the colonial town of Guatapé sits on the shores of a crystal blue reservoir. 

 

Climb the nearby “El Peñon de Guatape” for an unforgettable 360-degree view of the landscape the is known as the “the top of the rock with the best view in the world.”  We will then walk the streets of the town, snapping photos of the brightly colored houses. We will also have a chance to dine on fresh empanadas and drink ice cold cerveza michelada.

Day 2 - Guatape – Sonson

Recommended Hotel: El Tesoro

We head to Sonson via a beautiful winding road with spectacular views around almost every curve. Arriving in Sonson we will stay at a 200 year old hotel filled with an amazing eclectic antique collection. We will grab a pizza on the balcony that overlooks the main square and the green countryside. We will also be able to visit the HALO de-mining operations and learn about their efforts to remove leftover anti-personal landmines from the area. Yep, there are still landmines out here. 

Day 3 -  Sonsón to Salamina

Recommended Hotel: Casa de Lola Garcia

 

Today we take a short drive north to Salamina, a beautiful town located on top of a hill with steep streets which was declared a National Heritage site in 1982.

 

Day 4 - Free Day in Salamina

Recommended Hotel: Casa de Lola Garcia

While staying in Salamina, we leave one day aside for a trip over to the hamlet of San Felix and the nearby Samaria Valley. Here we will find the national tree of Colombia, the Quindío Wax Palm. The wax palm (also known as Palma de Cera or Ceroxylon Quindiuense) is the tallest palm in the world, and was officially adopted as a national symbol of Colombia in 1985. Found along the central and eastern Andes of Colombia, the Cocora valley of Quindío department is the popular place for visitors to see these magnificent trees that can grow up to a height of 60m (~200 ft). The trip is filled with spectacular scenery and once you arrive you feel like you have somehow discovered a special place that hardly any other foreigner has set eyes upon.

Important note: 

Remember, Google Maps isn't 100% accurate. I've had people try to drive from Sonson to Salamina with Google Maps and it took them down some sort of walking path. If you are driving from Sonson to Salamina please be sure to ask the people to show you the road to Salamina. 

 

Amazingly, some of the people don't know what Salamina is even though it's just a couple of towns over. If you ask people to show you the road to Aguadas they should be able to show you. 

 

Remember that the road to Salamina is a big unpaved road that cars and big trucks drive down. It's not a walking path.

Download Off-Line Google Maps 

Colombia is an awesome place with tons of cool places to explore. If you're going out into the backcountry where the Internet is slow or you can't get online, you can save an area from Google Maps to your phone or tablet and use it when you're offline.

You can find instructions here: Download Google Maps and Navigate Offline

Remember, I'm always available to help you. Just give me a call and I'll help you out in any way I can. 

Day 5 - Salamina to Manizales

Recommended Hotel: Termales de Ruiz

Amid stunning landscapes just outside the boundaries of Los Nevados National Park at 3500m, this thermal-baths complex is the place to go for total relaxation. Rooms have the feel of a classic alpine lodge and while not huge they're comfortable. Outside there's a large thermal pool set among otherworldly páramo (high-mountain plain) plants.

Up on a hillside above the complex there's a birding shelter beside a gushing stream where 17 species of hummingbird come to feed. There are also short trails to explore.

Meals are served in an elegant fire-heated dining room, with large windows offering fine views of the mountains and – on a clear day – down to Manizales. The baths are the only ones near Manizales built right at the source – you can see the sulfur-laced waters bubbling out of the mountainside right behind the hotel.

Day 6 - Manizales to Jardin

Recommended Hotel: Casa Passiflora Boutique Hotel

 

Jardín, is a gorgeous and authentic colonial town and is known as the most beautiful town in Colombia.  Jardín is known for its colorful houses, vibrant floral displays, and delicious milk candies. You may take a walk through the main plaza of El Libertador Park which features rose gardens, water fountains, and the neo-Gothic Basilica of the Immaculate Conception.

Day 7 - Jardin to Medellin

Recommended Hotel: Diez Hotel Categoria
