Walk Cocora Valley with Private Guide & Transport from Salento

You can simply not visit the coffee region, without visiting the Valle de Cocora, home to Colombia’s famous palm forest. The spectacular wax palm tree (the national tree) can grow up to an amazing 60 meters tall.

A walk with a private, bi-lingual guide, adds an extra dimension to your visit, as the guide points out the different species of birds and plants. Birds that live in this area are parrots, toucans and the majestic Condor, Colombia’s national bird. Moreover, the valley has a rich indigenous history and your guide will unravel some of the mysteries, especially for you…

The tour is 6km/3 hours long and takes place on an altitude between 2100 and 2700 meters. Starting time is 9.00am in the morning, when there are more birds to see and the valley is still quiet. Tour includes entrance to the forest, transport from/to Salento by private jeep and transfer from/to your hotel.

The guided walk from Salento, is by far the most interesting -and personal- way to explore the Valle de Cocora!
