This road cycling holiday in Colombia takes you to a nation that has been consistently voted one of the 'happiest places on Earth.' Now we're not entirely sure what criteria is used to determine how happy a country is but at Skedaddle we do know precisely what makes a cyclist happy.
If incredible scenery, dramatic Andean mountain passes and gorgeous unspoiled Caribbean beaches brought together by a network of well-surfaced roads tick your boxes, then this pioneering new tour could well make you one of the happiest cyclists in the world! This tour, which includes Alto De Letras, at 52 miles reputed to be the longest climb in the world, is possibly our most ambitious and exciting road trip to date, designed to appeal to adventure seekers who live to ride and love to climb.
Colombia has been through massive changes over recent years. Politically stable with a well-developed infrastructure, Colombia is gradually opening up to tourists and is safe to visit. Whilst the rural regions remain delightfully unspoiled, traditional and rich in culture the country's cities and larger towns are highly sophisticated. Due to the country's history however international tourism is still in its infancy and vast areas of the country have been largely untouched by foreign visitors. Beaming smiles, open arms and unrivalled hospitality await those who do make the journey.
Road cycling is Colombia's national sport and during the course of our tour we will encounter local riders out training on the roads on a daily basis. The country has produced many fine riders. The annual Vuelta a Colombia is regarded as one of the toughest stage races in the world and a significant number of the country's top riders have gone on to do well in the Tour de France, often contending for the King of the Mountains jersey. Obviously we'll be taking things considerably gentler than the pros but we will get a taste of the magnificent Andean mountain roads which make those guys so strong.
It's not all climbing and hard work though as our journey takes us from the high mountain capital of Bogota at 2625 meters above sea level to the gentle emerald waters of the Caribbean coast. Along the way we'll pass through some of the country's most beautiful landscapes, entering the famous Zona Cafetera, one of Latin America's primary coffee growing regions. We'll also spend a couple of nights in Medellin, the "City of Eternal Spring" a seductive city which will appeal as much to culture lovers as it will to those in search of nightlife.
The final stage of our road cycling trip in Colombia takes us into a coastal flatland, a welcome rest after the challenges of the Andes, and delivers us gently to the world famous Caribbean resort and historic city of Cartagena where we will relax in classic colonial style and soak up the wonderful atmosphere before returning to Bogota for our return flights.
