Villa de Leyva Biking to the Waterfall
This tour is perfect for those who enjoy riding to natural locations. Starting from Villa de Leyva, you’ll climb on a paved road surrounded by farm fields and oak forests where you will reach the beautiful waterfalls at La Cebada River.
There you can hike on a path along the riverbank, reaching the cascade and cooling off in the waterhole if you wish as a reward. On the way back, take a fun dirt road with a magnificent view and a challenging downhill ride, to reach “El pozo de la vieja” (the old woman’s pond), another beautiful place to swim and rest for a while. Finally, you will warm back up with a 2km uphill climb to get to the road that will take us back to town.
Terrain Accessible for the average bike rider with a good fitness level, this tour is a mix of dirt roads and asphalt. Be prepared for 5km of downhill on a gravel road.
