    Day number 1
    Day 1: Arrival
    Hit the streets of the city where the past meets the present. Bogotá, the capital of Colombia, is a dazzling city located high in the Andes mountains. Founded in 1538, this bustling metropolis is the intersection of Caribbean and Andean cultures. Music can be heard from the street corners as the city's 8 million inhabitants travel to work, chat with neighbors, or sip on a cup of the country's world-renowned coffee. Although there are no planned activities for your first day, we recommend taking a stroll through the city’s historic downtown and visiting one of the many museums or beautiful colonial churches. If you prefer to get away a bit, you can go up in the cable car to Monserrate, one of the city's miradors (viewpoints) to take in the spectacular vista of the city. For a more local experience, a trip to one of the colorful markets where you can stroll the aisles of delicately stacked layers of fruits is a must. If you would prefer a guided tour on your first day we would be happy to help arrange one for you at extra cost depending on your interests! There is a mandatory meeting at 18:00 to meet your guide and the rest of the group and to talk to you about the upcoming days’ expedition.

    Day number 2
    Day 2: Coffee Tour
    Our day starts heading west into the Coffee Triangle, unlike the Bermuda one you won't be upset by getting yourself a bit lost in this axis! Home to some of the world's best coffee due to its location near the equator combined with rich soil, temperate climate and just the right amount of rain; the coffee triangle produces some of the best beans in the country! Our morning starts with a flight to Armenia and a short car trip into the Salento--an enchanting town in the folds of the Cocora Valley. This area was declared part of the Colombia Coffee Cultural Landscape by UNESCO and is deeply rooted in the history of the nation. A ride to the Recuca coffee farm takes us diving into the elaborate tradition of these magical little beans. See how coffee is grown, harvested by hand, roasted and processed to produce the perfect brew. Learn to differentiate between different types of beans before enjoying your own cup of paradise. Afterwards you are free to take a walk around the town lined with small shops with colorful balconies overlooking the street with their orange-tiled roofs gleaming in the sun.

    Day 3: Biking to Santa Rita Waterfall
    From Salento downhill our ride takes us through a 360 view of mountains in the coffee belt: passing plantations of coffee, banana, guayaba, blackberry, and orange. After crossing the Quindio River we will dismount and continue on foot towards the coffee farm where the waterfall is located. Following an old rail track, over small bridges and through overgrown and dreamy tunnels of foliage we are led by the gentle sounds of the cascade. At 15 meters high this fall forms a complex with a beautiful pool at its foot perfect for a refreshing dip to recharge before heading back. In the afternoon we will return to Salento by Jeep.

    Day 4: Trekking Cocora Reserve
    Walk amongst giants in the Cocora valley, home to the wax palm, the tallest palms in the world. Entering by jeep, the warm breeze wraps its arms around you as we cut through the sea of green hills. A difficult but rewarding five-hour hike through the valley takes us to the Acaime Reserve to view the ever-playful hummingbirds that live there. Not shy to humans they dance around putting on a real show. A plentiful lunch of local fare is provided. After the hike we will head back to Salento where you are free to explore more at your leisure before we all meet up to learn to do as the locals do: have explosive amounts of fun playing a game of Tejo! Our recommendation: Head up to Alto de La Cruz, the viewpoint overlooking the city for postcard-worthy photos.

Testimonials
I have traveled with Christian and Activexpedition a few times in the last few years and have never regretted it. They always plan an active, fun, safe, amazing trip! Their attention to support local businesses/people and in being an eco friendly company is evident in everything that is planned and carried out. Colombia is a beautiful place with beautiful, friendly people and I am so happy I had this experience with Activexpedition! I wholeheartedly recommend traveling with them for any adventure they offer and if you're looking to travel to Colombia.

Traveling to Colombia was not on my radar and I am so glad I went. The country is beautiful and the people are very friendly. I don't speak any Spanish, very glad to have such a wonderful guide, Christian Valencia who did all the translation. He clearly has been in the business for a long time and set up a great trip for us.

Amazing trip!! I cannot say enough about the trip, guides and overall experience. There is a large diversity in terrain, activities, and food in a relatively small geographic area. This trip provides the perfect combination of organization, safety, and activities, but with ample flexibility, spontaneity and time to explore on your own. The guides go out of their way to help provide the type of experience and activities that you prefer. I was a solo traveler and had a great time. Would be equally good for couples or friends traveling as a group.
