At More Local we design our itineraries based on the independent-style of travel we love to do ourselves, so although we travel as a group, you will not lose your independence. Our travel experiences in Colombia can also be tailor-made to ensure you get a very unique off-the-trail trip.

All of our trips and excursions in Colombia embrace responsible travel and incorporate eco-friendly practices. You will have the opportunity to get involved in our meaningful travel project in the indigenous community of San Juan del Soco (Colombian Amazon) as well as to contribute towards a reforestation program in Antioquia & Nariño and give back to the destination first hand – just like it should be.

 

Discover agro-tourism in the coffee region

Home to the most exquisite coffees and the friendliest locals, Quindio is one of the most charming spots in the tri-color nation. The local “paisa” culture has retained its local traditions – despite the passage of time, family values, good manners and faith still rule the roost.

Enjoy the view of endless plantations of coffee, plantain and native bamboo. Fall in love with the peace and tranquility of rural life. Learn directly from the hard-working campesinos (farmers) you meet on your trip. Simply let go and allow yourself to be seduced by the pure beauty of the region.

Ride on local horses off the beaten track. Taste the life of a campesino and get your hands dirty at coffee, cattle and organic fincas (farms). Clatter down narrow colonial alleys and climb up to the Valley of Cocora on Willy’s jeeps. Gain first-hand experience about growing Colombia’s renowned aromatic coffee. Walk through rural villages and hike through the gorgeous countryside up to the charming town of Salento. 

Quindio – you’ll be astounded by the kindness of the people!

Itinerary

   Day 1 – La Tebaida

Colombia’s legendary coffee region is one of the most charming and tranquil spots in the tri-color nation. Its winding roads take you through lush plantations of plantain, bamboo and world-class coffee. We begin our trip in a stunning spot overlooking the beautiful area of La Tebaida.  

 

 Day 2 – Montenegro

We begin our day with a stunning horse-back ride through rural lands where you will get a chance to enjoy beautiful views of coffee and plantain plantations. Next our trip takes us to Montenegro, another of the many colonial towns in the area, where we will visit a local organic coffee farm. Kick back and relax for the rest of the afternoon.

 

   Day 3 – Boquia

Today, you’ll get stuck into the action on a coffee-producing finca. Enjoy shadowing the farm’s staff and, through hands-on experience, you’ll learn everything involved in the coffee-making process. Meet the visionary grower responsible for producing some of Colombia’s best organic coffee. After a local lunch in Salento you will get a chance to experience a coffee tasting session. 

 

 Day 4 – Palermo

In the morning, we stride out with a pleasant hike, followed by a picnic and trip to the valley of Cocora. We then crack on up to Quimbaya, where a local family will warmly welcome you to their self-sufficient farm, established in 1984. Hernando, (the eldest son) and the rest of the family, will share their philosophy of sustainable rural life.

Get to know the family and enjoy farm work such as cow milking or animal feeding. Our idea is that you chat with whomever you like and try your skills at farming. When it comes to making dinner, we hope you might even want to lend the family a hand. 

 

   Day 5 – Armenia

We rise early to the sounds of rural life and get involved in various farming activities before heading back to Quindio’s capital.
