1. From Pereira/Salento: Guided Trek in the Cocora Valley
Hike through the magical Valle del Cocora, part of Colombia’s Coffee Triangle that's famous for having the world’s tallest palm trees. Take photos at breathtaking viewing points and see local coffee farms from outside (not a coffee farm visit). Meet your tour guide and make your way to the entrance of the valley. Learn about the Quindio wax palm, the national tree of Colombia, as you trek beneath its towering trunks. Take a short ride in one of the traditional cars coffee growers use to travel between farms. Get back on your feet and hike to beautiful viewing points overlooking the valley, perfect for a picture or two. If you're lucky, experience the magic of the mists when winds blow the water vapor between the trees and transform the valley. Finally, meet the locals and start getting to know what life is like in the valley and discover some of the world’s best landscapes.
