Santander Coffee Bike 

($250.000 COP)

Description

The Bike tour begins at strategic points depending on the location of the coffee farms, which are mostly on the sidewalks of the municipalities of Barichara, Valle de San José and Curití. During the tours of the coffee mountains of Santander, agriculture will play an important role thanks to the different crops that are grown in the region, giving a touch of color to the landscape. The flora and fauna will be the main attraction due to the great variety of endemic (native) species that inhabit between coffee plantations and the tropical humid forest. During the tours you will reach the highest point of the mountain where the landscape will have in the background the majestic Serranía de los Yariguíes National Natural Park and the characteristic mountainous area of ??Santander, combining with the sky of its paramos rich in minerals and biodiversity. During the bike ride, you will be able to identify the different types of coffee, types of shade, and processes that each farmer carries out on his farm. These differences can be appreciated and tasted during the Coffee Tour.
