The trip in a nutshell
Get ready to discover Colombia's soul through its history, natural beauty and heavenly beaches.
Colombia boasts four different climates and a strong cultural identity. During our group trip, we’ll discover the diversity that defines this beautiful country, from subtle accent twangs, to the traditional music, and the ever-changing landscape. The tour will introduce us to the identities of Colombia; from the concrete jungles of Bogotá and Medellin, the little pastoral pueblos in the Andes, the colonial city of Cartagena de Indias, to the white-sand beaches of the Isla del Rosario in the Caribbean. They say Colombia is the heart of South America and we get why; it’s impossible not to fall in love with this colourful country.
This trip is more challenging than most and requires you to exhibit your true 'adventurer' nature. We will cover more than 2700km (inclusive of three internal flights). Some days are more intense and others more relaxing. A travel backpack is highly recommended over a suitcase as there are numerous hotel changes.
The trip is physically demanding given the hikes and pace of the itinerary.
