Colombia has celebrated many milestones since its years of turmoil and has since earned its reputation of being one of the most passionate and colourful cultures on Earth. Yet to be explored by the masses, this second most biodiverse country on Earth is a fascinating kingdom, of which simply you cannot come and go having just scratched the surface. The full Colombian experience requires an immersion with tribal communities, views from above of the ‘Lost City’, time amongst the peaceful serenity of desert sand dunes, wildlife spotting in the tropical wetlands and the Amazon rainforest to the colourful buzz of Cartagena and Bogota…
As the gateway to South America, Colombia does a wonderful job of introducing people to this fascinating continent. In the north of Colombia, lies some of the most diverse terrains in the country. Here, mountains, coast, and desert converge to form the highest coastal mountain range in the world. Fly to the most northerly part of South America, to the surreal northern deserts of La Guajira which defy all expectation. A region of beguiling beauty, where rolling desert sand dunes meet the pristine ocean… this unusual contrast is a wondrous sight to behold, and if it interests you, the most exclusive location to learn to kiteboard and windsurf.
A haven of biodiversity, our unique itineraries, and exclusive access to tribal communities will open your eyes to blissful areas you were unaware existed. Travel to secluded areas only accessible via helicopter, one of these being the awe-inspiring vistas of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountain range, for an exclusive aerial view of the renowned ‘Lost City’. Following this, you will land within the remote tundra of the indigenous Kogui community, for a humbling cultural exchange with a pre-Colombian society. Highly attuned to their surrounding natural environment, they have preserved their traditional ways of life for over 500 years. Accompanied by your expert conservationist, trek through the jungle wilderness in search of the elusive puma before heading out after sunset to discover the wonderous array of nocturnal wildlife, under a star-scattered sky.
The north is home to colourful Cartagena, where quaint and cobbled streets are abuzz, dressed with pastel facades and luxuriant bougainvillea hanging from balconies. Quite the cultural refresh from the remote jungle wilderness, the city comes alive at night to the rhythm of Salsa, the love language which unites the sprawling cities of Colombia.
