Green Pedal Tours
Where life is still close to nature
Green Pedal Tours offers bike tours in the Antioquia region of Colombia and day trips around the metropolis of Medellin where a ring of mountains will await you.
Our routes connect small, authentic, and charming mountain villages with quiet country roads.
In each village, with its strong traditions and ancestral costumes, we are privileged to meet with local families to hear their stories and to discover their habits and beliefs. You will have a glimpse of the real Colombia.
You will be immersed in nature, fully enjoying the Colombian biodiversity, its native forests with its diverse fauna and flora. Whether it’s the rocky and rooty trails, its multiple and crucial ecosystems, or its rich and fascinating history, these Colombian roads suspended in the clouds are just waiting to be explored, offering you an unforgettable cycling experience.
In conclusion, Green Pedal Tours evokes the freedom of multi-day mountain biking trips, traveling “light” off the beaten track. The main goal is to connect with nature by bike, using forgotten dirt roads, taking the minimum and not much else…
Why “Green Pedal Tours” ?
Eco-responsible, aproach local cultures
Green Pedal Tours proposes a different way of traveling and getting to know Colombia in collaboration with the local population. We take an eco-responsible approach to bicycle tourism so that our trips have as little environmental impact as possible.
We have thought of each trip to include an encounter with a local family, a non-profit organization or a local tradition. Each activity benefits the local community and families, so Green Pedal Tours brings together a mix of sport and cultural exchange.
With Green Pedal Tours you will travel in small groups of 6 people maximum. We believe this is important because it causes as little environmental damage and disturbance as possible, and at the same time facilitates genuine contact with the local people and each other.
