A whole continent in one country
“If you want to watch the Pacific Ocean, go to Chile.
If you want to watch the Atlantic Ocean, go to Jamaica.
If you want to climb the American Andes, go to Bolivia.
If you want to discover the savannas of the Orinoco, go to Venezuela.
If you want to explore the rainforest of the Amazon, go to Brazil.
If you want to get to know pre-colombian cultures, go to Mexico.
But if you want to experience all this together, come to Colombia!”
Colombia, the country in northwestern South America, impresses and fascinates its visitors after just a few days. It is a land full of passion, joie de vivre and a vibrant, colorful culture. On an area that is about as big as Germany, France, Austria and Switzerland together, visitors experience a variety of landscapes and a unique variety of plants and animals (Colombia is the country with the second largest biodiversity worldwide). If you visit Colombia yourself, you will fall in love with this exotic country! Not for nothing Colombia, inspired by its inglorious past, used for a long time the slogan “el riesgo es que te quieras quedar” (“the risk is that you want to stay”) for advertisement.
Experience Latin America
Colombia also has a lot to offer besides road cycling. At Elite Cycling Colombia, you not only spend a great time in the saddle, but also get to know the country and its people!
