Colombia is one of South America's most beautiful but least-visited countries. The Colombian passion for cycling is on a par with their love for football, making it a fantastic destination for the intrepid cyclist.

Now that Columbia is opening up as a travel destination, you have the chance to explore this hidden South American gem. The tour from Medellin to Bogota combines challenging long mountain climbs and dramatic Andean scenery.

We journey through an amazing variety of landscapes, sights and cultures characterised by the lush verdant hillsides of the coffee district. The tour begins in Medellin and ends in Bogota, two of Colombia’s most vibrant cities; between these lively contrasting destinations we cycle right off the beaten track. With a history of European colonialism and a troubled era of political struggles and drug wars, modern Colombia has moved on from the past, striving for a new future and now welcomes visitors.

Claiming to be ‘one of the happiest places on the planet’ and with cycling not just a past time but a national sport, what better destination for an adventure cycling holiday? After a few days to acclimatise in Medellin, we head north west to Santa fe de Antioquia, a colonial former gold mining town. Then it’s southwest to La Pintada, and Salamina along mountain ridges and through spectacular coffee regions.

We cycle through the Caldas region, home of the Paisas people and one of the main coffee growing areas, and on towards Bogotá. At 2625 m above sea level amongst towering Andean peaks Colombia’s vibrant capital city is rich with history. There are no less than 58 museums and over 70 art galleries.

Airfare is not included in the tour price.

All accommodation will be in hotels or guest houses. We choose accommodation on the basis of comfort rather than luxury. Our prices are based on sharing a twin room.

Optional Extras:
- Own Room: From £275
- Bike Hire from Colombia: From £185

Most of the food is provided on your 17 day tour. We provide 16 breakfasts, 13 lunches and 10 evening meals (see trip notes for details) along with snacks and mineral water during cycling days. All transportation and local guides within Colombia are included. International flights are not included in the tour costs.

Spending money depends on your taste for souvenirs, drinks etc. We estimate that £250 will be more than enough to cover the 17 day tour. You can expect to pay around £3 - £10 for a 3 course meal in a restaurant.

Tipping is an accepted part of everyday life, and although it is always at your discretion, you will be expected to tip to reward service. £25 for the guide and team at the end of the tour is recommended.
