What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Chicamocha canyon, Aratoca, Santander, Colombia

You’ll start your day with a 7am pickup from your accommodation in Bucaramanga for the 1.5-hour scenic drive to the river in the base of The Mojarra Park in the Chicamocha Canyon. This is the ideal location to start your trek, with the very first 1.25 miles (2 km) along a narrow path next to the rock face. This path is then connected with a sector of rock climbing, which contains chains, handrails and ropes to enable simple access for those not familiar with climbing.

You will absolutely love the views of the mountains, canyons and birds flying past you at the very same elevation as you are.

You will be amazed as you go through one of the ancient sacred caves of the ancestors of the native Guanes indigenous; where there are still remains as well as objects used in their daily life. This cave was strategically situated at a small water source, and as you explore you will come to understand and learn the customs of this ancient people along with their history through the help of your guide and an information board located in the area.

Your primary hike will finish by descending down an awesome 100-foot (30 m) height rappel. You’ll then have time to absorb some more of this beautiful scenery before heading back to our vehicle and the comfortable ride back to Bucaramanga, with an expected arrival time of approximately 3pm.

Duration: 5 hours

Beautiful nature of Quindio!
We walked the short loop in the park, which was a magical experience. Our guide Andres told us lots about the history of the region. It was very educative. After Cocora we headed back to Salento for a delicious traditional lunch. We had a wonderful time hearing all insider tips of our guide. Of course after a good meal you take a good cup of coffee. In Finca El Ocaso we made our own cup of coffee. Interesting way to learn about the number 1 drink of the world. We concluded with Tejo. Soon realizing we weren't good at it, but had lots of fun. Trip totally recommended!

The mud bath was quite the experience!
Bruce, who was our contact, was wonderful in helping set up your. He was very responsive to our questions. Pick up at our hotel went fine and the best part of the tour was the mud bath and washing after. Quite an experience and well worth doing! Don’t miss the massage while in the mud and the washing after by the local women. The day, however, was long and with a lot of sitting around and waiting, after the mud bath and after the lunch. At times during the waiting it seemed a bit disorganized with little explanations and ultimately the day could have been shortened by several hours.

Fantastic way of visiting coffee triangle
You cant go past Bruce for arranging amazing tours. This tour was the highlight of my trip, his organisation, knowledge base and expertise ensure great trips. The transport fleet was wonderful and the guides used very impressive. I will have no hesitation in using Bruce again next year on my return to Colombia, reassured in my mind that i will be getting the very best experience. Highly recommend and be reassured you are in the best hands.

Terrific trip to Coffee Country
Bruce (Rodrigo) McLean is knowledgeable, efficient, and knows the Zona Cafetera very well (he lives there). We had to change our plans a few times and Bruce was absolutely wonderful about it - cheerfully adjusting our itinerary and listening carefully to our needs. The Aurora Finca was perfect for us, a real find. The trip was both fascinating and a lot of fun and reasonably priced. Highly recommended.
