Going beyond the must-see destinations of Bogotá, the Coffee Triangle and Cartagena, Colombia In Depth introduces travellers to the country’s hidden pre-Hispanic and colonial past.
Featuring all of Colombia’s highlights combined with a tour of the attractions of the forgotten south and the charming colonial streets of Barichara, this three-week in-depth journey will capture the imagination of culture and nature lovers alike. Beginning with a stay in the capital of Bogotá, you will then move on to Barichara, a dusty town in the Santander department which is widely described as Colombia’s most beautiful traditional town. Following two days of cultural exploration in the mountains of Santander, you will fly to the Coffee Region and enjoy a hot air balloon flight over this UNESCO protected landscape. Venturing further south, you’ll step off the beaten track and explore the pre-Hispanic ruins of San Agustín and the arid plains of the Tatacoa Desert. Finishing with a little seaside relaxation, your trip concludes in Cartagena and Santa Marta where the verdant vegetation of the Tayrona National Park and the Caribbean Sea breezes make for the perfect retreat.
