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 -  Sonson to Honda

Recommended Hotel: Posada la Trampa

 

Today we drop down in elevation into warmer climates as we shoot down the Magdalena River Valley on our to Honda, Tolima. We spend the evening eating, drinking and swimming in the pool as we get ready for the next days adventure. 

Day 4 - Honda to Manizales

Recommended Hotel: Termales de Otono

 

Today we tackle the worlds longest road climb. Alto de Letras is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.679m (12,070ft) above the sea level, located in central Colombia. 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 the mountain town of Manizales located next to the Nevado de Ruiz stratovolcano. 

 

Day 5 - Manizales to Salento

Recommended Hotel: Reserva Monarca

We make a short drive south to Salento, a charming town in the Andes, known for its coffee culture and beautiful scenery. You’ll have the afternoon free to roam the city. Take a walk on Calle Real, Salento’s premier road full of local craft shops and vibrant colonial architecture painted in rainbow hues. Just a short drive away, you may also visit Cocora Valley where world's tallest palm trees look like the whimsical kind of plant you'd find in a Dr. Seuss story.

 

Now, normally people say "Take a walk up to the lookout point and check out the beautiful scenery" but the hotel that I use for this trip is amazing and has a view of the area that is like being in heaven. So, you can skip walking up all the steps to the lookout point and instead, be served a great meal on the hotel balcony while taking in one of the most spectacular views ever.

 

We will also get the chance to play the Colombian game of "Tejo" which consists of throwing rocks at exploding targets.

Day 6 - Free Day Salento

Recommended Hotel: Reserva Monarca

We will spend the day exploring the Colombia’s coffee region. Our ride will take us through the mountains and into rolling green foothills with a visit to the strikingly beautiful Cocora Valley. Cocora Valley offers a lush ecosystem, lined with wax palm trees that shoot up to 60 meters high.

Day 7 - Salento to Salamina

Recommended Hotel: Termales de Otono

 

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.

 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 8 - Salamina to Jardin

Recommended Hotel: Casa Passiflora Boutique Hotel

 

Jardín, is a gorgeous and authentic colonial town. Jardín is known for its colorful houses, vibrant floral displays, and delicious milk candies.
