Overview & Highlights

Discover Colombia,  famous for coffee and gold, but also with friendly people, superb Andean scenery, white sand Caribbean beaches, an abundance of flora and wildlife and atmospheric, historic towns.

Colombia is one of Latin America's most distinctive and until recently misrepresented countries, and is possibly the continent's most beautiful. This fascinating journey explores a few of Colombia's highlights: the energetic capital Bogotá; colonial Villa de Leyva; the rolling hills of the coffee country; the golden sand beaches of Tayrona National Park; and the seductive port of Cartagena, with its history of pirates and modern day arts scene.

Colombia's distinct and heady mixture of Hispanic, colonial, indigenous and African influences has left its mark on the food, music, architecture and culture; its vibrancy, welcoming people and extraordinary natural and architectural features make this an unusual and captivating journey.
