Travel on a Roadtrip through the municipality of Santa Rosa de Cabal until you reach the Hacienda Potosí to enter a hiking experience in the middle of Andean forests and we will stop in the region until we reach the incredible Laguna del Otún.


Day 1

We will begin our trip very early in the morning from the city of Pereira, the capital of the coffee region to head towards the Hacienda Potosí where we will receive a paisa-style breakfast. After getting ready, we will begin with a walk along a trail that will show us a complete ecosystem of Andean forest and cloud forest where we will learn about its native flora and fauna. Continuing with our tour we will climb to 3,950 meters high to contemplate the immensity of La Laguna del Otún, a huge natural reservoir that is considered the source of the entire water source of the aqueduct of the city of Pereira.

After sharing an unparalleled moment in Laguna del Otún, we will begin our descent to culminate with lunch in the municipality of Santa Rosa de Cabal, nationally known for its Santa Rosa chorizos.
