OVERVIEW

ALTOS is company that allows cyclists to travel through Colombia in their road bikes while their non-cyclist companions enjoy all the cultural activities this country has to offer. This is a Colombian company that will guide you to meet its culture while practicing the best sport in the world.

They´ve witnessed and have been part of several accomplishments that Colombian cycling have accomplished. In ALTOS we believe this sport is the best way to meet good friends, share time with relatives, and test your mental and physical limits.
