Salento is a fantastic location for mountain biking in Colombia. Our beautiful, little town is surrounded by lush, green mountains with scenic trails for riding a bike. Mountain biking tours are available and cost 40,000 COP per person. They last four or five hours. The fee includes the bike, guide, technical support, water, food (depending on the tour) and entry to any coffee fincas you may visit.
It is also possible during the full moon to take a nighttime ride by moonlight. Or you can cycle alone to the Valle de Cocora. This is a pretty cycle with very little traffic, and the bikes cost 5,000 COP per hour to hire for this route or if you just want to ride bikes and go off on your own.
Got your own bikes? If you do not need to hire bikes, we recommend a cycle from La Serrana down through the coffee plantations to the little town of Boquia
