2 Day Minca BEAST

Snowy Mountains and Muddy Tracks

Day 1

Riding time: 6 hours
On day 1 we head from our base in Santa Marta, up to Minca, a jungle town perched 650 meters above sea level. Day 1 is spent tearing up the dirt roads that make up Minca’s greater area, making stops at some of the local waterfalls, swimming holes and business, including an optional tour of La Victoria Coffee Plantation, as well as a beer from the local, German-owned brewery, Nevada Brewing Company.
The night is spent at Casas Viejas, perched almost 1km up into the mountains.

Day 2

Riding time: 5 hours
Day 2 is where things get a little more intense. We wake up in the small hours of the morning to leave Casa Viejas at 3am sharp, riding in the dark for 2-3 hours up the mountain to Cerro Kennedy, the highest accessible point in Minca at 3,200m above sea level. We arrive at the Military base on top of the mountain in time for sunrise, and an absolutely jaw-dropping view of the surrounding, snow-capped mountains, ABOVE the level of the clouds.
We make our way back down to Casas Viejas for breakfast and to re-group, spend a couple of hours cruising back down the mountain, stopping at a swimming hole and a light lunch along the way. We arrive back at Santa Marta HQ in the early afternoon, around 1pm.
