This is a great horseback riding program in the Colombian coffee region. The working hacienda is a big caddle farm and it is only reachable by horse. It is about 1-1,5 hours driving from Manizales and the last part you will be picked up by the guide from La Quinta and you will jump on a horse to ride the last part to the Hacienda. Your luggage will be transported on a back of a mule.
You will enjoy the beautiful restored country house and the thermal bath in front of the house. On the second and third day you go riding all around the property of the farm and into the paramo landscapes.
The last day you will go to Hacienda Venezia, where you will learn a lot about the coffee history of this district.
