Itinerary

Fly to Bogota
Day 1-2

Bogota

Start your journey in Bogota, home to a wealth of culture, with cobbled streets and buildings steeped in history in La Candelaria, as well as the leafy Plaza de Bolivar and stunning Cerro de Monserrate. We’ll take you on a guided half day tour to the iconic Zipaquira Salt Cathedral, one of Colombia's most unexpected architectural wonders, an underground church built within tunnels left behind from salt miners, a mesmerising experience.

Accommodation: B.O.G Hotel ( 1 night )
Day 2-5

Coffee Triangle

Time for some real coffee! After a short flight from Bogota, you’ll arrive in Colombia's famous coffee region, Pereira, nestled in the foothills of the Andes. Staying at the beautiful hacienda-style hotel rich in charm, surrounded by lush green rolling hills and immersed in nature. A delight for the senses, here you will visit working fincas and learn about the coffee-growing process whilst sipping a piping hot cup of Arabica (an absolute must!) Take a guided tour to the beautiful Cocora Valley and Filandia: marvel at the towering wax palms before exploring the cute colonial town.

Accommodation: Hotel Boutique Sazagua ( 3 nights )
Day 5-8

Medellin

Leave the coffee region and fly on to the fascinating city of Medellin. Known for its difficult history, Medellin is now a city transformed and wins the heart of all those who visit. The locals, or 'paisas', are incredibly proud of their city and with good reason. Enjoy a full day tour discovering the city's highlights, such as Comuna 13 with its vibrant graffiti art, Botero Square home to the artist's iconic sculptures and Santa Elena with its fabulous flower garlands.  Relax in the beautifully restored villa of Patio del Mundo, set in lush tropical gardens a calming sanctuary from the buzz of Medellin.

Accommodation: Patio del Mundo ( 3 nights )
Day 8-11

Cartagena Historic City, Cartagena, Colombia

Your next stop is the coastal Caribbean city of Cartagena. A city that pulsates with beating rhythms and is an explosion on the senses, Cartagena is an absolute must to any Colombia itinerary. For three nights stay at the beautiful colonial retreat of Ananda Hotel Boutique, located in the heart of historic Cartagena.  Awaken your senses with a guided street food tour: wander the artisan markets and try empanadas from traditional food vendors, all the whilst learning about this vibrant city. On your free day, perhaps take a day trip to the Rosario Islands, where you can soak up some rays, don your snorkel gear and take a dip.

Accommodation: Ananda Hotel Boutique ( 3 nights )
Day 11-13

Sierra Nevada and the Caribbean Coast

Your final stop is the Caribbean coast and the ruggedly beautiful Tayrona National Park. Take a full day tour to the remarkable pre-Columbian archaeological site of Pueblito, showcasing Tayrona culture with stepped terraces and round house constructions.  Whilst here stay at Villa Maria Tayrona, nestled in the tropical jungle with stunning views of the Caribbean Sea.  If you're craving a day just to relax here, we recommend heading into the park and flopping in the idyllic bay of La Piscina.

Accommodation: Villa Maria Tayrona ( 2 nights )
