Tour Details

Starting your journey with an 8 am pickup from your Salento hotel, you’ll travel through the beautiful coffee zone landscape to discover the small town of Viterbo. With a population of only 12,000 people and set in a valley surrounded by lush mountains and plantations of everything from coffee to avocados, Viterbo is a traditional Coffee Zone town. Somewhere a horse and cart on the street are of common appearance, and that often several streets are often half-filled with coffee beans drying in the sun.  

The entrance of this small pueblo (town) is a beautiful tunnel of giant Saman trees. Some with an age close to 100 years, and all provide beautiful shade and shadows of the road below. Traveling through the “Tunnel of the Samanes” you’ll view the trees, the entrance, and the amazing wooden sculptures that also line the entrance. These colorful sculptures have been carved out of fallen or dying Saman trees and range from 2-8m (6-26ft) in height.

Already saddled and ready to go you’ll be introduced to your horse and given instructions (if needed) on how to mount and ride this beautiful animal for the next 2 hours.

Beginning your ride along these gravel roads you’ll enjoy the passing landscapes filled with mountains of forests, plantations of coffee, plantain, avocados, and so much more. Your path will lead you past traditional fincas and across small creeks that sometimes flood the road during heavy rains. 

Turning off this road you’ll travel along the side of a river before entering a forest of giant Guadua (bamboo). You’ll immediately feel the temperature cool down by 4-5 degrees, as you ride into this beautiful and surreal location. You’ll dismount and enjoy the Guaduales (forest of Guadua) on the banks of the river by foot for a short time, before mounting your horse again and continuing your journey into the river and passing through the other side of the Guadua forest. You’ll continue your ride up the river for a while before coming out onto the banks and into a plantation of sugar cane. Following a path through this sweet plantation, you’ll enjoy new landscapes as you slowly begin your journey back home.
