What about getting into the woods like a total adventurer rider? Let us surprise you with this trip. The Cocora Valley is a great natural park surrounded by misty green hills and mind-boggling landscapes full of Wax Palm Trees, the Colombian national tree. Its location on the Coffee Triangle and its closeness to Los Nevados Natural Park made them worthy of Unesco’s recognition as the Coffee Cultural Landscape of Colombia Heritage Site. In this 6-8 hour tour, you will get amazed by the natural sceneries by visiting the main spots of this park surrounded by trees and coffee farms. First, meet our skilled and experienced guide in the chosen departure point. He will take you to Salento where your horses will be set and ready for you to ride them. This is where the adventure actually starts. The horses will drive you through different viewpoints. Stop and stare at the magnanimity of the landscapes. Let our guide tell the stories of the region and everything you need to know to appreciate the place even more. Afterward, you will be ready to go to the Cocora Valley and ride the willys, the most traditional cars in the coffee culture: old jeeps that were the main transport for coffee growers to cross wild roads among nature. Last but not least, we will call it a day once your guide will take you safely to the chosen arrival point.
