RIDE DESCRIPTION

Take a trip to a remote jungle lodge:

 

Take an off-road motorcycle adventure tour remote jungle lodge where we take a short boat ride down the river to get to the lodge itself. Here we spend an afternoon exploring the river by boat while looking for wildlife. Spend the day swimming at a beautiful waterfall and swim crystal clear water. Then we get into tubes and float down the river until we arrive at the hotel. At night the stars come out and the jungle comes alive. We can relax on hammocks while listening to the sounds of the jungle at night. On the last day, we put the bikes on a boat (or canoe) for a river crossing on the way back to Medellin.

REVIEWS

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Ever since I watched Narcos on Netflix a few years ago, Medellin was on my buckle list. Colombia Motorcycle Adventures provided a good excuse to come to Medellin. Our coffee & Jungle Motorcycle Adventure tour with Jeff Cremer exceeded my expectations. We visited exotic Colombia towns that are not on your regular tourist maps, meeting friendly locals, and experienced their culture and history. Furthermore, I felt completely safe. - Jeff A. 

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ I’m also surprised at the well-paved roads in Colombia, the ample amount of twisties and elevation change. It rival northern Italy. This tour also provided plenty of dirt road riding to keep things interest. But getting in and out of Medellin in rush hour can be a hair-raising experiment. And don’t forget to spend a few extra days in Medellin, it’s the latest hipster holiday destination right now. - Phil N.

ITINERARY

Day 1 - Medellin to 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

 

Day 2 - Sonson to Norcasia

Recommended Hotel: Termales Espiritu Santo

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 Narinó 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 motorcycle ride to the famous hot springs located a few hours from the town where we will spend the rest of the day swimming in the thermal pools. 

Day 3 - Norcasia to La Chachaza

Recommended Hotel: Hotel Ecologico La Chachaza

After lunch, we ride to La Chachaza. Set deep inside a tropical area on the Miel River some 10 miles or so from La Dorada, this place is absolutely amazing. After spending the day riding on beautiful off-road motorcycle trails, we arrive at a parking lot where a boat picks us up for a 5-minute ride up the Miel River to La Cachaca Hotel. These are large tropical bamboo bungalows with hammocks and netted beds. The food is simple fare from the region but very good. 

Depending on what time we arrive, we can visit waterfalls or swim in the crystal clear waters of the river. I highly recommend this spot to the adventure motorcycle traveler who wants to see some a bit off the beaten path. In the evening we can hang out in the hammocks, drink cold beers and enjoy the amazing sounds of the jungle at night.  

Day 4 - Jungle Lodge - La Chachaza

Recommended Hotel: Hotel Ecologico La Chachaza

This hotel is awesome! We spend time day tubing down the river, visiting waterfalls, and swimming in the crystal clear river. 

Day 5 - River Crossing - La Chachaza to Medellin

Today we make our departure back to our home base in Medellin. After an early morning river crossing on a canoe or barge, we wind back through the mountains stopping for lunch at a restaurant with an amazing view before heading back to Medellin.

IS COLOMBIA SAFE?

Now it is. Gone are the days of kidnappings, drug lords, and guerrillas. We routinely encounter Colombian military checkpoints that ensure safe travel throughout the country. We've led hundreds of tours around the country and have never had any problems with security. 

 

Anthony Bourdain summed it up perfectly:

 

"If you want to find bad people in Colombia, you can surely find them, as you could in New York or Los Angeles. But nowhere have my crew and I been treated better or with more kindness and generosity. I'd bring my family on vacation there in a heartbeat. And hope to soon. As I said before: Colombians are proud. Let them show you what they are proud of."
