Overview & Highlights

On this adventurous group journey you’ll discover the mysterious archaeological park at San Agustin, enjoy a farm stay in Colombia’s bucolic coffee country, lie back on Caribbean beaches at Tayrona National Park and then dip into the culture of Cartagena.

Colombia is one of Latin America's most distinctive and often 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.
