EXCITING NEW TOURS CLOSE TO MANIZALES AND MEDELLÍN

We would like to introduce you to two enchanting tours, where customers can connect with nature and culture, deepening their experiences in Colombia.

 

Mule Ride – Coffee Region

We experience the unique beauty of the Coffee Region on a mule ride, starting at a farm near Manizales. We head east, taking the road leading to the wetlands, where we penetrate the jungle, bordered on one side by pine plantations. Here, we can experience the contrast between an artificial forest, practically a green desert, and the jungle on the other side, where we can hear the sounds of the wild animals it harbors. After traversing this nature trail, we take the road leading to the ruins of an old cement factory, a place full of secrets and charm, once the scene of significant cultural and musical events. Along the way, we can enjoy a magnificent panoramic view of the city of Manizales amidst the beautiful blue mountains.

Duration: approximately 4 hours

 

Cooking Class at an Organic Farm – Medellín

We visit an agro-ecological farm, certified with the country’s three main agro-ecological organic labels. While participating in a organic cooking workshop on the farm, where we learn to prepare delicious and healthy dishes to share, we learn a lot about the origin of the food we eat.

We harvest some of the ingredients ourselves and learn all about the cultivation of organic plants. The cooking process itself takes place in a clay oven, just like our ancestors did.

Duration: approximately 4 hours
