ITINERARY

Explore the thrill of enduro mountain biking in Salento, Colombia, on an adventure that begins in the town’s main park, where you can taste a traditional coffee from local farms. We’ll then hop into a 4×4 vehicle to ascend the Central Mountain Range, reaching an elevation of 3,050 meters (10,006 feet), the starting point for our exhilarating journey on the «Nieblas trail».

 

 

NIEBLAS TRAIL

This 3.9 km singletrack trail boasts a 514-meter elevation loss, weaving through Andean jungles and tree plantations. Before starting to descend the Nieblas trail, we will meet a peasant family who will share with us a typical breakfast of the region.

 

 

ALEGRIAS TRAIL

The end of the Nieblas trail marks the start of our next adventure on the «Alegrias trail», a 5.8 km singletrack descent with a 791-meter elevation loss.  Widely regarded as the best trail in the Quindio department, Alegrias offers breathtaking vistas and diverse terrains. Expect to encounter grasslands, rock gardens, root-filled paths, Andean forests, tree plantations, and pure creeks as you traverse this remarkable trail.

 

 

Due to the fact that Alegrias and Nieblas trails cross the protected natural area called “Distritos Regionales de Manejo Integrado de la Cuenca Alta del Río Quindío de Salento», such trails are a popular destination for Mountain bike travelers seeking natural beauty and coffee culture immersion.

 

After the ride, if you so desire, you’ll have the chance to immerse yourself in the culture of Salento. You can wander through its colorful streets, discover its local crafts and meet its lovely inhabitants. In the village, a delightful lunch awaits you, serving as a reward for conquering the day’s cycling challenge.
