A fascinating exploration of snow-capped mountains, coffee plantations, laid-back beaches and colonial history
Colombia is still largely undiscovered despite its amazing variety of landscapes, sights and cultures. On this diverse two-week trip we experience the contrasts between the lively and cosmopolitan capital, Bogota, the atmospheric streets and well-preserved colonial buildings of Cartagena, and the laid-back and welcoming countryside. We amble through the rolling hills of the central Coffee Zone and those surrounding Villa del Leyva, as well as taking time out to relax in hammocks and explore the superb Caribbean beaches of Tayrona National Park.
What makes this trip responsible?
On this trip we use a local leader and local guides and we stay in small locally-owned hotels wherever possible, ensuring that we contribute directly to the local economy. We visit several national parks, and the money from our entrance fees goes towards helping the conservation efforts of the Natural National Parks Authority.
