Contrasts of Columbia

13 Days



Colombia is the country where ‘magical realism’ comes to life. Rich in culture, with an enormous biodiversity and a notoriously friendly and welcoming population, a journey through this eclectic country is packed with standout moments. Not only do we visit the Caribbean coast and the lush, green coffee region, but we contrast the modern city of Medellin with the more traditional Andean culture found in Bogota.

  • Bogota – Visit its superb pre-Colombian Gold Museum and the historic streets of La Candelaria
  • Salento – The cobbled streets of this quaint town are found in the beautiful Andean foothills, where hummingbirds fly between giant wax palms
  • Medellin – Discover how this diverse modern city has transformed its reputation through innovative design and development
