Colombia Explorer

Overview:

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.

Highlights:

  • Bogotá Gold Museum
  • Underground Salt Cathedral at Zipaquira
  • The colonial towns of Popayán and Cartagena
