A 10 day itinerary to showcase all that this incredible country has to offer. From city escapes to mountain views and island paradises, let the adventure commence...
P.S. Don't forget to stock up on our Colombian accessories for your travels!
DAY 1 & 2
One of our favourite cities in Colombia, a colourful and charming place brimming with the best restaurants, shops and architecture (the old town is even a UNESCO heritage site). We recommend checking out La Cocina de Pepina restaurant for lunch and Celele for dinner, but check out our full list of favourites here. For some added fun, why not try a cooking or salsa class?
DAY 3 & 4
Exploring Las Islas
If we had to capture Colombia on a postcard, Las Islas de Rosario would be a winning shot. Made up of picture perfect beaches with white sands and turquoise waters, the many islands in this region offer up the luxurious beach escape that you could only dream of and only a short boat ride from the port of Cartagena. Try your hand at water sports or simply lay back and enjoy the sunshine.
Day 5 & 6
Soak Up Sierra Nevada
The views that is! This breath-taking mountain range offers views like no other across the lush lands of Colombia and out over the Caribbean Seas. Relax, unwind and take in the fresh air. This region is great for trekking, bird watching, sketching, meditation - all you need to for some zen rest and relaxation.
DAY 7 & 8
Saunter Down To Salento
Green hills and lush landscapes make up the surrounding areas of Salento, providing all the nature you could dream of. Ride around the coffee farms on horseback, catch one of the traditional 'Willies' to the Cocora Valley for a day's trekking, taste the local trout, and of course, make sure you take home some of the country's most incredible coffee beans.
DAY 9 & 10
Finish With A Bang In Bogota
For your final stop, take in some Colombian history and culture with the historic Bogota Gold Museum followed by lunch at Prudencia. Maybe even book a graffiti tour to discover the most spectacular wall art and it's history. For the foodies, the Paloquemao Market is a chef's dream, offering up Colombia's finest natural ingredients; and of course to end your trip, book in to one of Bogota's many stylish restaurants or rooftop bars (a list of our favourites here).
