On this new tour, Colombia offers you an experience of riches galore in a range of sumptuous landscapes and vibrant towns and cities. Having emerged from a period of social and political unrest, the country is resurging with a new optimism which permeates the very fibre of society both in rural villages and the vividly contrasting major cities. The welcome from its youthful, friendly people has always been warm, but now that is imbued with a tangible confidence in the future.

The dynamic capital Bogotá and romantic, Caribbean Cartagena have long been on the radar for visitors, and the gorgeous coffee region has been welcoming guests for some time to its historic fincas. Here we also take you to Villa de Leyva, a beautifully preserved Spanish colonial town; arty villages Salento, Filandia and Guatape, and a wholly transformed Medellín, now one of the most exciting cities on the continent for the arts, entertainment and gastronomy.
