Day 1

Welcome to Colombia - please make your way to our start hotel. In the evening trip briefing and dinner.

Day 2

Easy ride to get used to the altitude. Rolling terrain with fantastic mountain views, churches, small towns and a late lunch in a beautiful main plaza.

Day 3

A lagoon, beautiful architecture, ceramics and a mix of paved and unpaved roads are what we have for today’s biking instalment.

Day 4

Contrasting scenery, panoramic views and Villa de Leyva, a great example of the whitewashed colonial architecture and a town of historical significance will be the highlights of today.

Day 5

A circular route today as we stay in Villa de Leyva and a chance to taste some of the wine produced by Colombia, and then a relaxing afternoon is the order of the day.

Day 6

Early start today to get the best weather as we head to Moniquira, the “place of bath” and also the best producer of Bocadillo, the best fuel for cycling.

Day 7

A great day for the mountain bikers as we hit some off-road mountain trails, stopping at an incredible waterfall before lunch in a colonial setting.

Day 8

Another day to savour as the gravel roads continue as we climb to Guane and see impressive nature and the red and yellow tones of the mountains in this dry enclave.

Day 9

The charming and laid-back town of Barichara and exciting mountain biking are what we have lined up today – a day to look forward to.

Day 10

Rest day today, but still a fantastic day, as we take the cable car across the canyon Mesa de los Santos, the second-largest, with the Grand Canyon being the largest. A memorable day.

Day 11

Fantastic trails, coffee making, local birdlife and local beer is a fitting way to end our biking and it is a cracker of a day!

Day 12

Bittersweet day as we head away from our bike trip, but still plenty to see in Colombia and the start of your next adventure!

My husband and I really enjoyed the cycling trip. The scenery was amazing. Our guide, Alejandro made sure that we had everything we needed during the entire trip. The weather was great. We stopped for a coffee and snack every mid morning. The mountain bikes were excellent. Some of the roads were quite bumpy so the bikes were very appreciated. There were some steep uphills but we always had the option to ride in the truck. Oscar, the driver, was always polite and helpful. The overnight stays were always a nice surprise, from farms to boutique hotels. The food was very good in most places, only 2 overnight stays did not offer much choice. Alejandro was always flexible about the time to have dinner. The last 2 nights were more relaxing. We spent time in the hot tub, sauna and pool. We were able to cycle a long or short distance since we were staying at the same hotel for 2 nights. I would recommend this cycling trip to anyone who loves off road.
