1. Cycling: Coffee Country
For the past five seasons on the cycling circuit, Colombia has racked up more Grand Tour podiums (11) than any other country—which speaks not only to the caliber of Colombia’s riders but also to the world-class terrain they have for cycling. And though Colombia is best known for its monstrous climbs, including Letras Pass, the world’s longest road climb at 51.5 miles, there’s far easier terrain in the country’s Coffee Triangle, a rolling green landscape dotted with haciendas and chic guest-houses. The biking culture here is huge, and riding through it is like touring a coffee version of Napa. Even better, an increasing number of operators run tours, including Trek Travel, which launched a six-day trip through the area for 2018.
