Program

Day 1: Arrive in Cali

Ricardo, Epico Moto Adventure's owner, will pick you up at Alfonso Bonilla Aragón International Airport (CLO) and take you to your hotel of choice for your first night. Epico Moto Adventure will provide a range of places you can chose from depending on your preferences. They can also offer their home and Epico Moto Adventure’s headquarters to stay the first night free of charge, and if you behave, Ricardo will even make you breakfast in the morning.

Depending on how tired you are or how late you make it back to Cali (about 30 minutes from the airport), you will go out and enjoy a welcome dinner and a drink so you get a taste of Cali’s nightlife.

Day 2: Cali - Silvia - Popayan - Coconuco

Epico Moto Adventure will pick you up at your hotel between 6:30 and 7 a.m. and take you back to their headquarters where all riders will meet for a short briefing, waiver signing, and bike fitting; and a most needed breakfast!

You will head south of Cali about 2.5 hours to the small town of Silvia where indigenous communities and beautiful landscapes make this place unique and a must visit.

After walking around and doing some riding around Silvia, you can continue your journey south through never-ending twisties to Popayan, “The White City” located between the Colombian Western Mountain range and Center mountain range where you will stop for lunch. Popayan is famous for its beautiful colonial architecture and gastronomy.

How about a natural hot springs bath to finish up the day? You will spend the night about 25 kilometers from Popayan at the Coconuco Hot Springs Hotel.

Day 3: Coconuco - Purace Volcano - San Agustin

You are going to be riding up the Purace Volcano! This active volcano (Epico Moto Adventure will make sure they turn it off that day, so don’t worry) is about 4750 meters above sea level and on a clear day, the views are breathtaking! You will ride to 4000 meters through abandoned sulfur mines. If you are feeling extra adventurous, you can hike up the other 650 meters. This stretch has some intermediate off-road riding.

Continuing your exciting journey, you head southeast to San Agustín Archaeological Park. This site was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1995 and contains the largest collection of religious monuments and megalithic sculptures in Latin America and is considered the world’s largest necropolis; definitely an interesting site and a must see!

Day 4: San Agustin - Tatacoa Desert

Heading northeast now, it is time to put down some serious kilometers to reach the Tatacoa Desert where you will spend the night. This is about a six-hour ride. A completely different landscape and terrain make this a unique spot!

Day 5: Tatacoa Desert - Salento

You will beg to stay one more hour at the pool, so you will stay one more hour at the pool and then continue your adventure ride to Salento in the heart of the famous Colombian coffee region. This peaceful and colorful colonial town will take your breath away. You will visit the Cocora Valley and will relax the rest of the afternoon walking around town and enjoying some beverages at the square.

Day 6: Salento - Cali

This is when you start making your descent back to your starting point. You still have plenty of awesome country roads, twisties, and unpaved roads ahead. On your way back, you will make a little detour to El Cairo. This hidden jewel is a must see little town surrounded by 360 degree majestic views. El Cairo is about four hours away from Cali.

If you think this trip is over, think again. Epico Moto Adventure will end this journey on its family owned tropical Ranch “Barlovento” where you will be welcomed with ice cold beverages by the pool and awesome food. This is how Epico Moto Adventure will thank you for being part of their family. It is their way to ask you to come visit them again for more adventures.

Day 7: Cali

Ricardo will drive you back to the airport. This is if you haven’t already postponed your flight and decided to stay one more week! Epico Moto Adventure will be more than happy to help you arrange for additional travel plans at this time or in the future. Don’t forget to ask for your goodie bag and to share your adventure with the world!
