8 Day The Perfect Loop - Coffee Region

Somewhere between non-objectional and totally life changing lies this tour



Awesome (Adjective) 

This tour is awesome and leans more towards the life changing end of the spectrum. Why? If you are interested in cris-crossing Colombia's central mountain range, riding off-road while, seeing amazing scenery, swimming in hot springs, crossing rivers and visiting remote jungle villages than this is for you. If you aren't interested in this, please remain safely in place in your cubicle.


DAY 1 - Medellin to Guatape


Leave Medellín in the morning and take a drive out to the town of Guatape. Pretty much all the towns in Colombia are beautiful and this one is no exception. The only difference is that here you can visit the famous Piedra del Peñol. This high granite monolith (technically an inselberg) rises from near the edge of the Embalse Guatapé. A brick staircase of 659 steps rises up through a broad fissure in the side of the rock. From the top there are magnificent views of the region, the fingers of the lake sprawling amid a vast expanse of green mountains. We will spend the night at some beautiful cottages here and maybe even go swimming.

DAY 2 - Guatape to Sonsón


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. 

 Day 3 - Sonsón - Nariño

In the morning we ride to a lookout point that stands at over 10,00ft in elevation and has a beautiful view into the Magdalena river valley before winding down into the rural coffee town of Nariño where we can have lunch and drink coffee with coffee farmers in the towns main square as well as visit a local coffee co-op. After lunch we take a short off-road ride which drops us from the highlands and into the jungle where we will visit to the famous hot springs and will spend the rest of the the day swimming in the thermal pools. 

DAY 4 - Nariño to Honda

Today we leave the hot springs and continue our trip through the jungle until we get to the hot climate of the Magdalena Valley. We shoot down the highway while surrounded by sugar cane plantations until we reach the town of Honda where a beautiful swimming pool awaits us at our hotel. 

DAY 5 - Honda to Salamina

Tackle the part of the worlds longest road climb, the "Alto de Letras". Alto de Letras is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.679m (12,070ft) above the sea level, located in central Colombia. Located next to the Nevado de Ruiz stratovolcano, it’s said to be the longest road climb in the world.The climb

starts at a sub-tropical 468 meters, in the town of Mariquita, and tops out at an arctic 3.679 meters. We end the day in Salamina, a beautiful town located on top of a hill with steep streets which was declared a National Heritage site in 1982.


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). However, if you want to avoid the crowd while admiring these wax palms, you do have another option: San Felix.  In the village of San Felix, located about 30 km (~19 miles) east of Salamina in Caldas, lies the forest of Palma de Cera - a tranquil and natural sight free of roaming tourists!

DAY 6 - Salamina to Manizales

Located a short but beautiful drive from Salamina in the mountainous coffee-growing region of western Colombia is Manizales. We will stay at a beautiful hot springs hotel located at the edge of the Nevado Ruiz Stratovolcano. Feel free to take a dip or explore some of the off-road routes that lead to the top of the volcano.

DAY 7 - Manizales to Jardin


The adventure isn't over yet. Today we drive to Jardín, a place that many people call, “Colombia’s prettiest small town.” Nestled in a lush valley and surrounded by sprawling coffee and banana plantations, Jardín is known for it’s natural beauty. It’s a town full of personality and history and is the perfect place to chill out and drink coffee before heading back to civilization.

DAY 8 - Jardin to Medellin

Sorry dudes, time to go back to Medellin. This marks the final day of our trip but not before taking the beautiful ride back from Jardin to Medellin.  For those riders that couldn’t get enough of Colombia, let us know and we can arrange extra days to stay.​
