What you'll do

We will spend between 3 or 4 hours horseback riding. We´ll leave from RESERVA GUADALAJARA - Finca hotel to visit the pastures of "Puerta de Palo" where we have milking cows. Then we cross San Pacho´s Creek and Armadillo tail in search of Elephant Rock. it's just the beginning... In the way you will enjoy crossing rivers and creeks and watching birds. But we need to climb to the top of THE ELEPHANT ROCK... a privileged and exclusive place where we can see the beautiful cocora valley and the white waters of Quindio River. After enjoying the landscape, we will cross the mountain in search of the ELF FOREST. We will leave the horses outside to protect the plants and the wax palms that are born inside. If you want to imagine this forest, remember those of Jurassic Park but with a big difference ... You will be walking inside them. Finally, we will return to the farm house where we will bathe and feed the horses in gratitude with them for having given us a beautiful experience. For you a good beer or ice tea.

Extraordinary rain forest Horse Back Ride experience in RESERVA GUADALAJARA- finca hotel in the middle of Cocora Valley. We offer to our riders a private and non conventional horseback ride into a centenary and familie farm. We will go to ELEPHANT ROCK and ELF FOREST. You climb high with great views and then a short walk in the pristine cloud forest and a snack. The horses are very calm so even inexperienced riders will cope. There are plenty of birds in the area too if you like birding. My family has had these lands for almost a century. I consider it a blessing that I want to share with you

This is a must for any trip to Salento. Diego is an amazing guide and host and you can see how much he cares for meeting new people and taking care of his animals. This was one if not the most memorable experiences of my time in Colombia. The Cocora Valley is breath-taking and seeing it all during a horseback ride with Diego is an incredible event that everyone should experience. Diego went above and beyond and I look forward to returning to Salento and booking again with Diego!

Diego was prompt with our questions. His farm is massive. His animals are well cared for. He has an amazing team with him. We learned a lot about animals and farm life, saw beautiful views of the valley, and had a splendid time with Cloud and Rosita, who were very well trained and had their own personalities. When we got on the farm, we received coffee, naturally it was fabulous. When we got to the top of Elephant Rock, we enjoyed wine from Chile, a sandwich, and cookies, while listening to the stream below, birds above, and the soft wind. The rain forest being in it's most natural form was wet and beautiful. We loved every moment! Diego made sure we were comfortable, understood handling instructions of our horses, and allowed us time to soak in the beauty of it all. We were also lucky enough to taste the amazing banana bread with guava and lemonade at the end!!! Thank you!

We had a wonderful afternoon with Diego. He is such a friendly person and we felt very comfortable and safe with him and his companion Walter. The horses seemed to be very well treated and perfectly educated. Even my boyfriend who had never sat on a horse before felt safe all the time. The experience itself was incredible, it cannot be described in words. Even though the comments are overall very good, I would not have expected it to be this great. It has been one of the best things I did so far! The views were just stunning. We highly recommend and would definitely do again.

This was an amazing experience, the ride was adventurous and challenging! I came to Columbia for a personal getaway for my 62 Birthday! And this adventure was the highlight of my trip! There was a family from Chile with us on the tour, and Diego and family sang happy birthday on top of elephant Mtn! It was so beautiful and I especially enjoyed the rainforest! Diego makes you feel welcome and important. His knowledge and kindness are very special! I have a new friend in Colombia! I highly recommend this tour !
