Colombia Calling

Colombia distils the best of Latin America into its borders, and we get the best out of Colombia in 11 days of exploration, from Caribbean colour to rugged Andean landscapes, colonial beauty to rainforest riches. Not many places can match Colombia’s splendid variety – one day you can walk on glaciers, the next snorkel in the bath-warm waters of the tropical coast.The warmth of the Colombians charm all who visit, and you’ll find them rightly proud of Cartagena, where languid days play out among the most exquisite of colonial backdrops – inarguably one of the continent’s finest urban destinations. An enthralling, endlessly surprising country, and the adventurous traveller’s newest must-visit destination.
