Valle Verde Horseriding invite you on this remarkable journey through the coffee zone of Colombia! During this horse riding tour, you will ride through coffee plantations with amazing views that tell different stories at every step. You will also visit Buenavista, a little town that lives from coffee, where you can learn the coffee-making process, from picking to tasting. This is truly a memorable journey for the coffee and horse riding enthusiast!
The accommodations will be primarily in old coffee haciendas. These haciendas are mainly coffee plantations and some are ranching places. All haciendas have a coffee sent and the love from the “Arrieros”, their owners, who will open the doors and welcome the group into their homes.
You will stay in multiple accommodations, with rooms for two, three, or four people. Couples are accommodated separately. Each hacienda has two to four bathrooms located in living areas and some have private bathrooms.
After the assignment of horses and equipment, you will start along the coffee route, which will mesmerize you with its beauty every step of the way. In the afternoon, after lunch, in the village of Pijao, you will ride on track-paths until you reach Cordoba, coffee village par excellence, where you can experience first-hand the productive process, from cultivation to tasting.
For this day, the scenario is horseback riding among coffee plantations, on roads and paths that tell stories every step of the way, visiting the best viewpoint of the entire Quindio. Let's sleep again at the Soñarte de Cordoba Hotel!
