HIGHLIGHTS Download trip notes
  • Wander beneath the floral balconies of Cartagena – the World Heritagelisted town combining Caribbean splendour and irresistible oldworld charm.
  • Tayrona National Park is a nature escape that seems to have it all, from perfect beaches and mountain backdrops to wildlifefilled jungle.
  • Admire the colonialera architecture of Barichara – this little gem is widely considered Colombia's prettiest town. Get lost on the cobblestone streets or head to nearby San Gil – a hotspot for adventure sports.
  • Head to a local factory supporting women in work and keeping alive a traditional papermaking method by using the natural fibres of the Andean fique plant.
Start in Cartagena and end in Bogota, the Explore Colombia tour is a guided explorer tour that takes 10 days. You will travel through Guachaca, Tayrona National Park and Cartagena in Colombia. Explore Colombia is a small group tour which includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

Colombia is one of those gems of South America that still is often skipped on the tourist trail. Be captivated by Bogota’s colonial-era centre, laze on palm-fringed stretches of Caribbean shoreline and meet the locals that make Colombia one of the world's friendliest countries on this 10-day South American adventure. While Tayrona National Park and the Guachaca region offer gorgeous hiking trails, off-track swimming holes and powdery beaches nestled in lush jungle, eye-catching towns like Barichara are a dream to explore, and adrenaline-fuelled San Gil is just moments away. For an off-track trip in that’s full of rhythm, music, colour and life, Explore Colombia is right up there with the best of them.
