Chicaque Full-Day Trip from Bogotá

2. Chicaque Full-Day Trip from Bogotá

Head out of Bogotá into the great outdoors on this 8-hour excursion to the Chicaque cloud forest. You’ll be picked up at your hotel for the drive to the natural park. Enjoy walks along the ecological trails and take part in other activities that interest you, while the driver waits. At the end of the designated time you’ll be transferred back to your hotel. The park’s 9 trails are quite well marked, so a guide isn’t necessary to enjoy a day of hiking. Horseback riding and bird watching are also available at additional cost. There’s a restaurant where you can stop for a meal and take in great mountain views. You’ll find a variety of birds, some of which are endangered. In particular, 15 species of hummingbirds have been spotted. Twenty species of mammals have been recorded and to date, 630 plant species have been identified.

Bogotá: Guided 5-Hour Coffee Farm Tour

3. Bogotá: Guided 5-Hour Coffee Farm Tour

Join us on our Coffee Farm experience as we set out from the center of the city and head an hour and a half deeper into the mountains of Bogotá! We will start the day by enjoying a traditional Colombian breakfast together and then go to meet our local farmers. We will discuss what it means to be an organic coffee farm and what the daily tasks of a farmer look like. Walk around the farm and take in the more than 8,000 coffee plants. We’ll learn how to hand-pick coffee and process it, and then afterward we will enjoy a delicious cup of coffee prepared in a unique way. If the weather and season permit, we will even get to plant our own coffee!

Horseback Riding Tour

4. Horseback Riding Tour

Ride on a Colombian Creole horse along the fauna, flora, rivers, creeks and lakes that make the Andean highland a perfect scenario for a thrilling day out in nature during your stay in Bogotá. On this tour, you will be driven from Bogotá to a rural location 40 minutes to the south east of the capital. There, a local cowboy will be expecting you with tame - yet powerful - horses ready for the adventure. After some instructions and advice, you'll start the ride, in the company of a guide (if option selected). Going up to 3,200 MAMSL, you will enter an Andean ecosystem, which is very different to the stereotypical image of the tropical jungle many visitors have about Colombia. After an hour's ride, you'll reach a fantastic lookout point where you'll be able to see the Monserrate Hill and even Bogotá in the distance. After a break (for stretching your legs and having a snack), you'll head back to the ranch via another path, making a loop. Once back at camp, a hot homemade meal cooked by a local, using ingredients fresh from the garden, will be waiting for you. After lunch, you will be taken back to your hotel or any other place in Bogotá.

The tour was really cool, we managed to pick a date where only our group of 4 people were visiting this tour. I did not have any idea that producing organic coffee could be such a hustle, really appreciate work that coffee producers do more now and I definitely have more respect for good cup of coffee. Our guide Nick was awesome, he showed us some landscape on the way to the farm and explained how this part of nature ecosystem works in the mountains and introduced us to some cool plants. The coffee farm owner Marcela (apology if I miss-spelled) was so energetic, shows us her farm, made Us delicious breakfast and Lunch and gave us opportunity to work as a coffee picker and guided us through all processes Which includes growing organic coffee and processes after picking the coffee berries. Definitely recommend this tour, one of most memorable experiences in Colombia for me. Thanks Nick and Marcela and Marcelas young assistant :)

The coffee tour is a must do! This was our 2nd experience with Freddy and it was a great day. I loved going to a smaller organic farm vs a big manufacturer to see how they make coffee in the traditional way. It was a great scenic view to the town where the farm was and a great learning experience. Any tour from the true Colombian experience is a great option.

Great experience more so because we were the only ones on the tour - special thanks to our guides - Maria & Francisco - they were fantastic! Feedback to future travellers (and the company) - the sights were great the trail were was is not easy - ideally should not be the first time on a horseback, do believe everyone should be given helmets.

Great experience visiting a local coffee farm that produces its coffee onsite. The tour guide was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Small group, relaxed drive, interesting tour and great coffee :)
