Vibrant Colombia is a land of contrasts and legends, an entire continent encompassed by one country. After being off the travel map for some time, Colombia is now moving back into the spotlight as an exciting travel destination.
Ranging from palm fringed Caribbean beaches, snow-capped Andean mountain peaks, desert, verdant rain forests and National Parks, Colombian terrain is truly diverse. From the cosmopolitan metropolis of Bogotá to the cobbled alleys of the colonial towns, we will explore all aspects of the country and indulge in a multitude of activities, from bathing in mud volcanoes to trekking in Tayrona National Park. Taking in the spectacular underground salt cathedral at Zipaquira, Los Nevados National Park, the bizarre rock formations of the Tatacoa Desert, and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of San Agustin, there will be plenty of opportunity to experience the real Colombia and venture off the beaten track, meet the warm and hospitable locals and have a truly memorable trip.

Tours that fall into this category are likely to involve at least a few challenging days and are often in destinations where tourism is still in its infancy.
You can typically expect a mixture of accommodation with some nights being spent in comfortable and characterful places, and some in more basic places, homestays or camping, especially where choices are limited.
These tours will typically involve a couple of days of easy/moderate trekking (3-5 hrs/day) or perhaps a more active approach to a cultural itinerary. For riding trips see the Riding Information section
With this rating, you can typically expect a tour with a good balance between exploring cultural sights (such as museums and historical buildings) on some days and experiencing the wonders of the great outdoors on other days.
