Weaverbird: Spirit of Colombia

16 days from £2,498pp
 

Group Journey

 
Colombia is one of Latin America's most distinctive and oft misunderstood countries. Many visitors consider it to be the continent's most beautiful. This trail-blazing journey allows you to explore its natural highlights, including the golden beaches and dense tropical vegetation of the Tayrona National Park, the fertile rolling hills of the coffee country and the culturally rich, historic city of Cartagena.

Off the beaten track, you’ll explore the picture-perfect colonial town of Mompós, on the banks of the River Magdalena and the intriguing ancient sculptures and burial chambers set in the lush countryside around San Agustín.

Colombia's distinct and heady mixture of Hispanic, colonial, indigenous and African heritage influences its food, music, architecture and culture. Its vibrancy, welcoming people and extraordinary natural and architectural features make it an engaging country, and this an unusual and captivating journey. The country has entered a period of peace and security and this is reflected in a growing interest in visiting one of the friendliest and most unspoilt countries on the continent.

What our experts say

This very comfortable but adventurous tour takes you to the acknowledged highlights of Colombia and beyond. In addition to the vibrant capital Bogota and exotic Cartagena you'll visit the charming colonial backwater at Mompox on the river Magdalena and the enigmatic pre-Colombian statues at San Agustin. A really comprehensive trip  - even more so if you add on an extension to Colombia's Amazon region.
