Itinerary

Uncover the true essence of this stunning country by exploring the remote and beautiful locations in this authentic trip through the wonderfully vibrant Colombia. Packed with the country's best archaeological sites, lush landscapes, finest colonial architecture and most spectacular scenery, this fascinating journey will lead you to Colombia's best kept secrets. This itinerary is certain to take you off the tourist trail to experience the ‘real’ Colombia.

  1. Fly to Bogota

  2. Days 1-3: Bogota

    Start your journey in Bogota, the bustling capital of Colombia. Home to a wealth of culture, where you will find the cobbled streets and historical buildings throughout the vibrant heart of La Candelaria.  On a Sunday, many of Bogota's streets are closed to traffic so for the best and most exhilarating way to explore the city and its diverse districts, we've included a privately guided bike tour.

    Accommodation: Hotel de la Opera (2 nights)

  3. Days 3-5: San Agustin & the Southwest, Colombia

    Time to leave the hustle and bustle behind you and leap to trails less traveled.  You will fly to Pitalito, 45 minutes' drive away from the town of San Agustin. A true delight to stay in the unique and peaceful Akawanka Lodge, bursting with art, character and color.  Off the main tourist circuit, the town has a sleepy, laid-back feel. Surrounded by lush countryside and rolling hills, you'll visit the important archaeological sites of San Agustin Archaeological Park, Alto de los Idolos and Isnos to explore the fascinating pre-Columbian statues that depict the life and beliefs of an ancient civilization.

    Accommodation: Akawanka Lodge (2 nights)

  4. Days 5-7: Villa de Leyva

    Transfer back to Pitalito and return to Colombia’s capital, Bogota, where you'll be met at the airport and travel by private transfer to the picture-perfect colonial town of Villa de Lleyva. Staying in the Hotel Casa Terra for two nights, tucked away on a peaceful cobbled street, a relaxing base to explore the local area.  Enjoy a privately guided tour with an expert guide and explore this peaceful town, soaking up its charm and history. 

    Accommodation: Casa Terra (2 nights)

  5. Days 7-9: Barichara & San Gil, Colombia

    Swap one picturesque colonial town today for another and drive by private transfer to the relatively undiscovered gem that is Barichara. We've included a privately guided walking tour of the town that takes in the beautiful main square with its imposing cathedral and fascinating cemetery, where the town's renowned stone masons display their artistry. After this, follow in the footsteps of generations as you walk along the Camino Real trail to the tiny village of Guane.

    Accommodation: Hicasua Hotel Boutique (2 nights)

  6. Days 9-12: Cartagena

    Take a direct flight today to Cartagena, one of the most beautiful cities in Latin America and the final stop on your adventure. Enjoy a half day city tour around the preserved colonial old town and soak up the history and charm the city exudes. Your remaining time is at leisure to stroll around, relax by the pool or take an optional boat tour to the Rosario Islands.
