Day
1

Bogotá to Pereira in the Coffee Triangle

On the fourth morning of your 7-day Colombia Emerging tour, you’ll be escorted to the airport for your included flight into the heart of Colombia’s coffee-producing region. Upon arrival in Pereira, a vibrant town situated in the foothills of the Andes Mountains, you’ll be chauffeured to the Hotel Sazagua, an enchanting retreat built in the style of a traditional hacienda.
 
This afternoon, your exploration of the Coffee Triangle  begins at Hacienda San Alberto, a working farm surrounded by vast coffee plantations. Learn about the entire cultivation process from seedlings to the final roasting of this world-famous coffee, and gain insight into why Colombia’s Coffee Cultural Landscape has been recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Your tour includes lunch and a coffee tasting. Back at the Hotel Sazagua, you’ll have time to refresh before dinner.  Meals L+D.

Day
2

Cocora National Park + Salento

After breakfast, a full-day privately-guided excursion takes you deep into the heart of the breathtaking Cocora Valley, home to wax palm trees – the revered national tree of Colombia. Towering up to 200 feet in height, they can live more than 120 years. You’ll be welcomed on arrival with a glass of canelazo, a local cocktail flavored with cinnamon. Then explore the valley as your personal guide shares insight into the flora and fauna that thrive here in this unique eco-system. If you wish, you can join in the region’s conservation efforts by planting your own wax palm seedling.
 
Then continue through the lovely countryside to Salento, a charming town famed for its traditional bahareque architecture. Throughout town, but especially along Calle Real, you’ll find one and two-story whitewashed homes adorned with brightly painted doors, windows and balconies. Founded in 1842 as one of the first Spanish settlements in the region, Salento is also a wonderful place to immerse in the timeless rhythms of typical Antioquian life. Returning to Pereira, you’ll have time to refresh and relax at your hotel before dinner.  Meals B+L+D
