Colombia is without a doubt the most sought after travel destination in South America and the world, there is a reason people are not mistaken.

We start off in Bogotá and ride down the Eastern Plains, vast flatlands in Colombia. Our destination is the beautiful natural reserve of Juan Solito. Here we will have one rest day to go on a wild life safari, and for those interested we can spend some time with a short off road refresher course. After this we will climb the Easter Mountain range once more and head towards an iconic colonial hacienda where Simón Bolivar spent some time during his independence quest. We will then head on over to the beautiful colonial town of Barichara. The next riding day will take us to an amazing river called Las Gachas where we will swim in natural pools in the rock formation. On our second to last day we will ride through some beautiful back country roads on our way to a marvel of nature the stunning Ventanas de Tisquizoque and we will finish off at another colonial town called Villa de Leyva. Our last riding day will bring us back to the capital.
