Start and end in Bogota, the Cycling Colombia trip is a guided bicycle tour that takes 13 days. You will travel through Cerritos, Roldanillo, Bogota and 7 other destinations in Colombia. Cycling Colombia is a small group trip which includes accommodation in hotels, transport, meals and others.

With Colombia's road cyclists gaining worldwide recognition and the country revelling as an up and coming active tourism destination, there really is no better time for a cycling trip to one of South America's most scenic regions. The coffee zone of Colombia lies at the heart of the country on the Western slopes of the Central Andes and our route takes us along paved winding roads that traverse a lush environment populated by coffee plantations and picturesque towns. Your effort on two wheels will be duly rewarded by stunning views and a taste of the famously warm Latin American hospitality.

Disappointed given the previous rave reviews.

“Returned from Colombia feeling we needed a holiday. With the notable exception of some lovely downhill much of the route is on very busy roads with heavy commercial traffic. If you enjoy diesel fumes and fruit juice then this is the trip for you.”
