Our cycling holiday starts in Medellin on Saturday. We appreciate that people join redspokes tours from all over the world; no matter what time you arrive at the airport on the tour start date you and your luggage will be transferred to the joining hotel. Please bear in mind that if you arrive before midday you may have to wait for your room to be made available.
The tour ends 14 days later in Bogotá on a Friday. If you decide to arrive early or stay on after the tour, redspokes can assist you in booking your accommodation and airport transfers at additional cost. If you depart on the last day of the tour your airport transfer is included in the tour price.
If you are flying from the Europe, you should look to get a "multi-destination" flight that arrives into Medellin and leaves from Bogota. Most European flights leave Europe in the morning and arrive in Medellin in the evening.
If flying from the UK, AA and Air France appear to be the favoured airlines by our customers.
