Average time to visit

Colombia can be visited year-round but the cloudforest has two rainy seasons, which generally run from May to June and from September to November. The best time for this itinerary is between December and March. It is worth noting that it can rain at any time of year due to the tropical climate. December to January is also the best season for birdwatching as many migratory species return to the forest.

Itinerary

Fly to Bogota
Day 1-3

Bogota & surrounds

Begin your trip in Colombia’s lively capital, Bogota, a cosmopolitan hub buzzing with trendy bars and restaurants. We’ve included a private tour that takes in the best of the city, including the old town of La Candelaria with its quaint, cobbled streets, the fabulous Gold Museum and a trip up the mountain Monserrate, affording panoramic views across this fascinating, sprawling city to the sierras beyond.

Accommodation: Four Seasons Hotel Casa Medina Bogota ( 2 nights )
Day 3-5

Cartagena

From here, return to the airport and fly to the colorful city of Cartagena on Colombia's coast, which boasts a distinctly Caribbean vibe, separating it entirely from Colombia's capital. Cartagena is a feast for the senses, so we’ve included a visit the Bazurto market accompanied by a professional chef. Head into the buzzing market and see a snapshot of local life before it’s onto the kitchen where you’ll learn how to prepare local dishes with an interactive cookery class and then savour the fruits of your labour over lunch!

Accommodation: Casa San Agustin ( 2 nights )
Day 5-8

Sierra Nevada and the Caribbean Coast

Next stop is the exclusive Casa Oropendola, a beautiful rustic yet luxurious home set way up in the Sierra Nevada mountains and immersed in between rainforest and acres of coffee plantations. With nature providing an amazing adventure playground, this is perfect for escaping the hustle and bustle of the cities and making the most of the included activities, from trekking to yoga, in-house cooking classes to visits to local tribal villages. To top off an already superb trip and add something really special, speak to our specialists about adding in a helicopter flight over the mysterious Lost City and the wave-bashed Tayrona National Park.

Accommodation: Casa Oropéndola ( 3 nights )
Day 8-11

Sierra Nevada and the Caribbean Coast

Rise with the birds before heading off road in comfortable 4x4s, as you make your way down to Santa Marta. Upon arrival to the coast, you’ll be transferred to your final stop on this incredible trip: the beautifully wild Tayrona National Park. Your boutique hotel is nestled near the park’s entrance so you can choose to spend your day exploring these palm-fringed beaches or slowing down the pace and staying poolside to soak up views across the Caribbean Sea. To get the best out of your stay, we’ve included hike into the national park with an expert guide who will explain the geography and culture of this diverse region followed by river tubing down the Don Diego River, a leisurely float that provides excellent bird-spotting opportunities.

Accommodation: Villa Playa Tayrona ( 3 nights )
