Come face to face with the real Colombia – lush, green countryside, picturesque colonial architecture, friendly locals, and high quality coffee. This tour has it all. Our bilingual concierge will pick you up and whisk you away on a magical journey where you will learn all about the coffee making procedure in beautiful natural surroundings, and if you like, you can try some fine Colombian wines, too.
Ever heard of “cupping”? No, not spooning; this is the term that the sophisticated coffee connoisseurs use to describe the tasting process of this incredible bean. Santander is the proud producer of some of the worlds best and most prestigious brands of coffee, and we will show you how to smell, taste and savour this refined beverage, cultivated in an eco-friendly way, conserving local habitats under 48 varieties of shade trees.
You also have the option of continuing the tour and satisfying another one of your vices – in a vineyard where you will have the chance to learn about how wine is made in the Colombian Andes. Unwind in idyllic surroundings, escape from the craziness of adrenaline filled activities, and enjoy rural tourism in its finest form.
We will also take you to the local farmers market, where you will experience an explosion of flavours, colours, smells and tastes, before marvelling at the sheer beauty of nature from the viewpoint of the Chicamocha Canyon. After the tour, we can either take you back to your hotel in Bucaramanga or we can bring you to one of our handpicked local hotels, so you can carry on living the idyllic countryside lifestyle.
