What an amazing ride! Thanks Trail Hunters Colombia! Going on a business trip to Manizales, I took an extra day to MTB. I wanted to ride a natural, enduro oriented trails. Got in touch with Trail Hunters Colombia and they put together an epic one day ride. We did the whole El Desquite! Very well organized, from breakfast to dinner! I started planning this ride with Trail Hunters months before! Great communication via WhatsApp, we fine tuned all details, we met in Manizales the evening before the ride to make sure everything was ok. Great experience and highly recommended! They know the area, the trails, etc. they will take care of you from the beginning til the end! Manizales is the “capital” of enduro MTB in Colombia! Trail Hunters have several options for any skill level and time! Can’t wait for my next ride there!

Simón and Paula are super professional in their work, they were attentive to me all the time and showed me some wonderful routes and landscapes. If someone wants to go through the coffee region and do a MTB, DH, Enduro or recreational route, Trail Hunters is the option.
