Our most popular itinerary, Magical Colombia is the perfect blend of sightseeing, getting close to nature and relaxation. You’ll start your trip in the capital Bogota, which has a very vibrant arts, restaurant and cafe scene with a number of interesting museums to visit as well as areas of historic interest such as La Candelaria. You’ll stay in a boutique hotel in the historic city centre from where the main cultural highlights such as the Botero and the Gold museums are only a short walk away.
From Bogota you will head to Villa De Leyva, one of Colombia’s prettiest colonial towns, where you will spend the night in a romantic posada. En route you will stop in Zipaquira to visit the spectacular underground Salt Cathedral. In and around Villa De Leyva you will visit several sites including the Santo Ecce-Hommo monastery, Posos Azules lakes and the fascinating Marqués De Villa De Leyva winery. From Villa De Leyva you will return to Bogota to catch a flight to the Coffee Region.
This UNESCO World Heritage Site is abundant in flowers and birdlife, not to mention the finest arabica coffee beans in the world. The main activities in the region include trekking and horseback-riding through the beautiful Cocora valley, day-trips to cute hillside villages such as Salento and visits to leading coffee plantations such as San Alberto where you can learn about coffee growing and production and take part in a private tasting. There are pristine natural waterfalls and hot springs to swim in and we can organise rafting trips along the rivers.
From the Coffee Region you will fly down to romantic Cartagena which features some of Latin America’s best preserved colonial architecture, as well as having Colombia’s finest selection of boutique hotels. We can take you on on a private tour of the historic sites or for the more adventurous we can offer deep-sea fishing expeditions, day-trips to the nearby Islas del Rosario and helicopter tours of spectacular sites such as the Lost City in the Sierra Nevada mountains.
While strolling through the cobblestone streets of the old-town be sure to try an exotic fruit cocktail, before dining in some of country’s best restaurants.
Your next stop will be the island of San Andres, from where you’ll catch a small propeller plane to the neighbouring island of Providencia. Tranquil and unspoilt, the charming island of Providencia is an idyllic place for swimming, snorkelling and scuba-diving. The golden sand beaches, breathtaking scenery and crystalline waters of this Caribbean island are still relatively undiscovered, making it a great option for those who want to avoid the masses and switch off completely.
