Emerald Mountains Road Cycling
Colombia is calling all cyclists! Great roads, dramatic Andean hill climbs and gorgeous Caribbean beaches await you.
This biking holiday could make you one of the happiest cyclists ever, designed to appeal to adventure seekers who live to ride and love to climb.
This tour includes Alto De Letras, which at 52 miles is reputed to be the longest climb in the cycling world.
It's not all climbing and hard work though. The journey takes you from the capital of Bogota at 2,625m, to the gentle warm emerald waters of the Caribbean coast.
Along the way you'll pass through some of the country's most beautiful landscapes, entering the famous Zona Cafetera, one of Latin America's primary coffee growing regions and also visit Medellin, the city of Eternal Spring.
The final stage takes you to a coastal flatland, a welcome rest after the challenges of the Andes, as you coast gently to the Caribbean and Cartagena, before returning to Bogota for a final night out.
Road cycling is Colombia's national sport and during the course of our tour you will encounter local riders out training on the roads on a daily basis. The country has produced many fine riders, and the annual Vuelta a Colombia is regarded as one of the toughest stage races in the world.
