Pedal Power: 15 Spectacular Cycling Routes Around The World.
Slide Nr 6
Eje Cafetero, Colombia – Recently, the Colombian government made 38 new cycling routes throughout the country available to national and foreign travellers, allowing adventurous visitors to discover a wide range of natural landscapes, from mountains to savannahs and breathtaking coastal regions. One of the most interesting trails runs through the “Coffee Triangle”, a 45-kilometre route beginning in Salento, crossing Pereira and ending in Santa Rosa de Cabal. Along the way you’ll visit the plantations where some of the most exquisite coffee in the world is produced, as well as passing through colonial towns, the majestic Valle del Cócora and the Santa Rosa hot springs. If you have time, we recommend stopping by a traditional house from the region to rest, in addition to visiting the National Coffee Park and, of course, enjoying a delicious Colombian coffee.
