Coffee Region

coffee plantations, traditional haciendas and picturesque valleys

Colombian coffee is known the world over for its quality and rich taste. Caldas, Risaralda and Quindío are the country’s most famous coffee producing regions, and no tailor-made holiday to Colombia would be complete without a voyage through here.

Forming the core of Colombia’s UNESCO-listed Coffee Triangle – or the Zona Cafetera – are three main cities: Armenia, Pereira and Manizales. Sitting amidst lush hillsides dotted with coffee plantations, fertile valleys and Andean peaks, they offer visitors a glimpse into authentic Colombian life.

Here coffee is king, so you’ll naturally have the chance learn all about the growing process at coffee plantations, and be guided on the different aromas and flavours by local experts. Staying in traditional haciendas, you can also take horse rides to picnic amongst the picturesque valleys, or go on trips to intriguing places like the colourful town of Salento.

All visitors should make time for the Valle del Cocora – part of the Los Nevados National Park – where you can walk amongst 60-metre-high palm trees and spot a range of exotic birds. The park itself offers a multitude of outdoor activities for those who like to be active including mountain-biking and rock-climbing.
