If you only head out to one place at Hacienda Bambusa, make sure it’s Valle de Cocora. This majestic valley is home to the Quindio Wax Palm, Colombia’s national tree and the world’s tallest variety of palm tree. Think cloud forests, orchids, and hummingbirds.
Coffee is one of Colombia’s principal exports – its cultivation is full of historic and cultural significance. Learn everything about the coffee process and taste different varieties of beans at neighbouring fincas, open exclusively to Bambusa clients.
Venture into the Andes for an unforgettable day of hiking. Routes range from 2-7 hours and are tailored to suit individual needs. Peñas Blancas and Rio Verde are our favourite trails.
A hot air balloon is a fun way to take in the scenery; flights take place early in the morning when weather conditions ensure a smooth ride. For those who like to keep their feet nearer the ground, grab a horse and ride through the Hacienda’s coffee and banana plantations along the Quindio River.
Salento, a bustling colonial market town at the centre of the Coffee Zone, is worth a visit. It is also the gateway to one of Colombia’s most captivating National Parks: Los Nevados.
River otters, armadillos, pacas, anteaters, sloths, jaguarundi pumas and howler monkeys roam the surrounding forests and rivers; the local botanical garden is one of the region’s most valued conservation projects.
Hacienda Bambusa can be visited year round, although we would recommend visiting between December and March and July and August for the driest weather.
