For the first day of the tour You will explore the city of Manizales.

Your Manizales experience will finish at the top of the city’s most iconic building: the Manizales Cathedral.
Los Nevados National Park & Thermal Baths
It’s an early start on this wonderful day-trip into the high mountains of the Central Andes, where you will discover the magical ecosystems of the paramo, relax in natural thermal baths, and enjoy close-up sightings of some of Colombia’s coolest birds.
The drive through the National Park passes through some of Colombia’s best preserved paramo, a stunningly biodiverse ecosystem of high-altitude moorland unique to northern South America.
Head out on a private coffee tour with a farm’s expert guide: learn the ins-and-outs of coffee production, pick your own beans, before enjoying a delicious coffee tasting session. Following a traditional lunch, you will have the afternoon free for hiking through the coffee plantations, perhaps watching the birds feeding on bananas from your hammock, or taking a refreshing dip in the pool. Of course, you could always spend the afternoon drinking more delicious coffee: you’ll never have a fresher cup!
