Adventure Across Colombia

Adventure beckons at every turn when you travel through Colombia. Snow-tipped Andean summits, the cobalt Caribbean coast and Amazon jungle await.

Embark on a canoe safari down the Amazon looking out for pink dolphins or hike under cloud forests and see myriad of birdlife. Explore the national parks and see cascading waterfalls and giant water lilies so large they can cradle a child.

Visit Bogotá one of the highest capital cities in the world. Hop aboard a teleferico (cable car) to the peak of Monserrat. Marvel at an underground cathedral built inside a salt mine.

Round off your trip relaxing on the Caribbean coast in Santa Marta, the gateway to Colombia’s burgeoning coffee region and stay in a hacienda.

Arrive in Bogotá, Colombia

Following an overnight flight, you can maximise your time in Bogotá, one of the highest capital cities in the world. Explore the barrios (neighbourhoods) and view the historic architecture that stands beside shimmering skyscrapers. You could head out to the town of Zipaquirá, home to salt mine tunnels to view a spectacular underground cathedral.    


Start the day at the lively Paloquemao market, known for its local delicacies and flowers. Visit La Candelaria, the oldest part of the city and stroll in the square or visit the cathedral. View works by the Colombian artist Fernando Botero at the Botero Museum along with pieces by Picasso. Next, head to the Gold Museum that houses one of the most impressive pre-Hispanic artefacts collections in the world. After lunch hop aboard a teleferico (cable car) and ride to the peak of Monserrate and the 17th-century church.


Today, you will venture out of Bogotá over the eastern hills to Choachí. Just a 90-minute drive from the capital you will find this irresistible refuge for outdoor enthusiasts, thanks to its proximity to the Chingaza National Park. Hugging the heart of the park, the forest cradles La Chorrera, a spectacular 590-metre waterfall that gives the landscape a spellbinding and incomparable charm. Lunch is included.

The Amazon

Today you will fly to the frontier town of Leticia—the meeting point of Colombia, Brazil, and Peru. On arrival in the Amazon, you will be transferred to The Calanoa Jungle Lodge, named as one of the 20 best hotels in the world by Condé Nast Traveller. The architecture has been designed for visitors to connect with the rainforest and river through all their senses.

The Amazon

This morning, visit a Tikuna community where you can see first-hand how their life revolves around the river and the jungle. After a leisurely lunch, you can hike across the Calanoa Reserve to the Matamata Creek, which lies on the edge of the Amacayacu National Park. A canoe awaits and you will round off the day paddling down the mighty Amazon. You will travel under a canopy of trees all the way back to the lodge (if the water level allows it).

The Amazon

Today you have the chance to Design your Day: Option 1 Travel to Mocagua Island and see spectacular giant water (Victoria Amazonica) lilies that can grow up to three metres. After lunch cruise along the Amazon looking out for pink dolphins. Option 2 Visit the lakes of Vista Alegre, on the Peruvian border, and immerse yourself in the wonderful diversity of wildlife. After lunch learn about the healing power of plants from a Cocama medicine practitioner in the Milciades garden.


This morning you will fly out of the Amazon and back to Bogotá. On arrival you will be met and transferred to Cafetal de la Trinidad, a two-hour drive away. This is an iconic Colombian coffee farm established in 1894 and one of the first haciendas to pioneer coffee planting in the region. The 300-hectare homestead has been lovingly renovated and is opening its doors to visitors for the first time. 


Discover more about the plantation considered a living piece of Colombia’s coffee heritage. The estate tour will be exclusive for your group and will start in the factory. Afterwards you can go horse riding or explore the vast grounds by foot. Look out for indigenous engravings from the Muiska on the rocks. A home-cooked dinner is rounded off with coffee tasting where you can put your newly acquired knowledge to the test.

Santa Marta

Today, you will fly out of Bogotá to Santa Marta which is located on the Caribbean Sea at the foot of the mighty Sierra Nevada. Colombia’s oldest Spanish city lies close to picturesque beaches. The boutique hotel lies on a bank at the mouth of the Piedra River framed by the greenery of the tropical jungle and the mountains. 

Santa Marta

Start the day exploring Santa Marta, the gateway to the country’s coffee region of Minca, Campano, and Bella Vista. While you may stop to taste the street blend of tinto (meaning ink in Spanish) the real tastings begin when you venture into the plantations. During the day, you will discover some of the endemic birds of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta (1,600 meters above sea level) and experience the wildlife wonders within the cloud forest.

Depart Santa Marta

Today you will depart Santa Marta for your international flight home.
