  • Duration: 8 Hours (approx.)
  • Location: Pereira, Colombia / South America

Starting your journey with an 8 am pickup from your Pereira hotel, you’ll travel through the beautiful coffee zone landscape to discover the small town of Viterbo. With a population of only 12,000 people and set in a valley surrounded by lush mountains and plantations of everything from coffee to avocados, Viterbo is a traditional Coffee Zone town. Somewhere a horse and cart on the street are of common appearance, and that often several streets are often half-filled with coffee beans drying in the sun.  

On arrival, you’ll slow down your journey into the town. The reason is the amazing tunnel of trees you’ll be traveling through. Known as the “Tunnel of the Samanes” the road is lined with huge Saman trees, with some close to 100 years of age. You’ll also discover astounding works of art along this passage of road. When these giant trees are dying or have fallen, a local artisan, with the help of his chainsaw, creates colorful wooden sculptures ranging in size from 2-8m (6-26ft). You’ll find everything from a 7.5m (24ft) tall Jesus Christ, brightly colored butterflies, peasant farmers picking coffee beans, and an indigenous man, to cups of steaming hot coffee.

Once you’ve entered the town, you’ll be changing your transport and head off up a gravel road to beautiful Finca filled with both award-winning Coffee and Cacao trees, along with a huge variety of exotic fruits.

You’ll be greeted with freshly made juice and start a walking tour of this wonderful Finca learning as you go through the complete process of both the coffee and cacao. You’ll journey down into a valley and up the other side, passing through the plantations of Coffee and Cacao, and into a small forest of bamboo.

Continuing your journey, you’ll pass through the many trees full of exotic fruits and arrive at a 100-year-old house made of Bahareque (a mix of timber, bamboo, mud, and cattle pooh in the construction of the walls). By the time you arrive, the cacao beans will be close to roasted and ready for you to make some fresh chocolate. As well as this, the coffee will be close to ready to pour you an amazing and fresh cup of liquid black gold. All the information you were told before during your walk of the plantations will all come together, as your guide will explain how the processes of these 2 products are so similar and can also be combined to create yet a wonderful mocha-flavored coffee bean as well.

After sampling your chocolate and coffee, you’ll have time to enjoy a wonderful fruit salad, made from freshly picked tropical fruits from the trees you just walked through!

Once you’ve finished your fruit salad it’ll be back to the pueblo for a nice spot of lunch at one of the local restaurants before your last stop of the day, visiting an artisan store. Here you’ll see some fine handmade jewelry, along with some unique hand-painted products ranging from decorations to ponchos, and other hand-painted clothing of all styles.
