RIDE DESCRIPTION

Colombia’s best geography for coffee production also happens to be ideal for motorcycle touring.

 

If you’re looking to experience the best of Colombia and only have 9 days, we highly recommend this trip. Based on the feedback from dozens of travelers, we have put together what we consider to be the “Perfect Loop” of Colombia's famous coffee region. We also added a two night stay at a beautiful jungle ecolodge.

A coffee region motorcycle trip checks all the boxes:

Lush green mountain vistas with soaring wax palms over 150ft tall. Check. Colonial haciendas turned into chic hotels and bed and breakfasts. Check. Hot springs flowing from snow-capped volcanoes. Check. Twist the throttle and lean into turn after turn after turn as you make your way through high mountain passes and fog covered forests. Check. Include the cosmopolitan city of Medellin as the starting point of the trip, and you have a motorcycle trip from heaven.

ROUTE MAPS AND NOTES

IS COLOMBIA SAFE?

The answer is a resounding YES. 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."

ITINERARY

Day 1 - Medellin – Sonson

Recommended Hotel: El Tesoro

Overnight Parking: Sonson Parking

This is going to be an interesting trip. Today we ride to the former guerilla conflict zone of Sonson. Sonson has been off-limits for decades due to guerilla activity. Although it's safe now there is very little information on the internet about the area. Consequently, it’s untouched by tourism which makes it the perfect place to get an authentic taste of Colombia. 

 

The ride to Sonson is great. One of the best things about this ride is the miles and miles of exciting twists and turns. Ups, downs, ascending curves, descending curves, increasing radius curves, decreasing radius curves. You’re going to get a ton of riding experience on just this one road. The pavement here is in good shape and as is the case in lots of areas in the countryside, there is very little traffic.

Midway we’re going to stop off at Luisa’s house and have a cup of local coffee called tinto. If you like kids you’ll be delighted to meet her twin toddlers. Tourists never stop here and you’ll see how happy she is to talk with us. Besides being a fun way to connect with the locals, it's a way to directly support a family business.

 

The town of Sonson is located at a high elevation but we’re going to climb even higher. The Paramo de Sonson is a lookout point that stands at over 10,000ft in elevation. The lookout has a scenic view of the fog rolling across the cloud forest and nearby valley. By now it will be late afternoon and we’ll head back to town to check in to our hotel and grab a pizza and a beer. 

 

We stay at the El Tesoro hotel located on the main square. This is a 200-year-old mansion that has been converted into a unique hotel. Unlike other hotels, this one hasn't been updated and still retains its original charm. In addition, the hotel is somewhat of a museum and is filled with an eclectic collection of antiques. Looking over everything will keep you captivated for hours. 

 

Located next door to the hotel is a great pizza restaurant. From the second-story balcony, we can enjoy a brick oven pizza while people-watching on the main square. It’s good to note that Sonson leaves the warm weather of Guatape behind. Located at 8,100ft you’ll want to bring a jacket because it's going to be cold at night.

Day 2 - Sonson to Norcasia

Recommended Hotel: Ecohotel Campo Alegre

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.  

The jungle ecolodge is a great experience. There is only one way to get to the ecolodge: by boat. And let me tell you something, it's awesome! They pick you up at the docks and then you get to enjoy 20 minutes of beautiful landscape, the reservoir and the dam. When you arrive at the foot of the hill where the hotel is located at, be sure to "suffer" a little by climbing up a 350 meter trail to the hotel. 

 

When you get to the hotel, you will love the great view it has of the Amaní reservoir.

Next to the restaurant area there's a beautiful swimming pool with a great view of the landscape, perfect for some pictures. 


The hotel can set you up with kayaking trips and excursions to swim in the nearby w
