Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive in Cali

Ricardo, Epico owner, will pick you up at the airport and take you to Epico Guest House if you decide to stay with them (no additional charge). After all riders have arrived, you will go out for dinner to get to know your new adventure buddies. Paperwork signing and safety briefing will take place on the first day if time allows.

  • Hotel: Epico Guest House (no charge)

Day 2: Cali - El Cairo, 280 kilometers / 174 miles approximately - mixed terrain

This epic adventure starts heading up north towards Calima Lake taking the back roads with lots of twisties and some off-road to get your heart pumping. You are headed to El Cairo, a hidden jewel of a town completely untouched by tourism and modern life. You will stay at the only hostal available in town, taste the best coffee in the world and enjoy the town’s 360-degree views to the Andes. Don’t forget to pick up a local bag of coffee to take back home, you will not taste anything better anywhere.

  • Hotel: Casa Amariya

Day 3: El Cairo - Termales del Ruiz, 180 kilometers / 112 miles approximately - mixed terrain

You start the day at the town square for breakfast and then head down to Cartago. You will go from 1,400 meters above sea level to 4,000 by the time you reach your destination. You will ride twisties and mixed terrain all day. The hotel stands near the top of the Ruiz Volcano with a beautiful view down to Manizales, and top this off, an amazing natural hot spring pool will make you want to stay an extra day.

  • Hotel: Termales del Ruiz

Day 4: Termales del Ruiz - Rio La Miel, 225 kilometers / 140 miles approximately - mixed terrain

Be ready for some more twisties, some technical off-road sections, ferry ride, old bridges and drastic elevation changes. You will go from 4,100 meters above sea level to almost 200, so have your bathing suit handy.

The location of this next destination is so hidden, that you will need to leave your bikes behind and take the local transportation, which won’t be revealed here but it will surprise you. You will emerge into the deep rainforest to find your shelter for the night.

  • Hotel: La Cachaza

Day 5: Rio La Miel - Sonson, 130 kilometers / 81 miles approximately - mostly off-road

Get your off-road game on. Everything from dirt, river crossings, rocky trails and sand, about 110 kilometers of it. Today you have the option of staying in a small village if you feel too tired to continue, or carry on to your destination for the day, Sonson, two hours’ away.

  • Hotel: Tesoro

Day 6: Sonson - Salamina, 90 kilometers / 56 miles approximately - mixed terrain

Today you will ride through beautiful coffee farms, the heart of Colombia. This road is only used by local farmers to transport their crops. You will find some challenging sections for sure. Salamina is a very charming town, declared a national monument and historic heritage.

  • Hotel: La Casa de Lola Garcia

Day 7: Salamina - Salento, 160 kilometers / 99 miles approximately - mixed terrain

This is your last colonial town before heading back to Cali. Also, in the heart of the Colombian coffee region, Salento has become a must-visit destination when in Colombia. From Salamina, you will take the less traveled roads and ride over the Andes ridges where views will take your breath away. You will make a quick stop at a coffee farm to understand a little bit of the production process if time allows. Salento is known for its beautiful arts and crafts, great dining and a gorgeous lookout terrace with views to the Cocora Valley and the Tolima snow peak mountain.

  • Hotel: Descanso y Sazon

Day 8: Salento - Cali, 220 kilometers / 137 miles approximately - mostly paved

Before you head back to Cali, you will visit the Cocora Valley, near Salento, where you will admire Colombia’s national tree, the Wax Palm, the tallest in the world by the way. This is a must see site because of its unique vegetation and peaceful vibes.

On your way back into The Cauca Valley, you will ride through beautiful sugar cane plantations, the biggest in the country. This is a more relaxed ride mostly on-road, perfect way to ease down after a whole week of intense riding and adventures.

  • Hotel: Epico Guest House (no charge)
