Colombia Highlights with Lost City Trek
Join us on our sightseeing tour of Bogota, visit the cloud forest and coffee farms, enjoy colonial Cartagena, the Caribbean coast and trek to Colombia's Lost City.
We start our holiday with a guided bike ride on closed roads (only on Sundays), enjoying Bogota, a normally congested city from this unique perspective, along with many locals. Visit Bogota's world renown Gold Museum to see some of the very best of the Colombian gold.
Next, fly Bogota to Pereira and travel to Salento, a beautiful colonial town in the heart of Colombia's coffee growing area. Here, we explore on foot, take a guided tour around a coffee farm and a hike through the Wax palm trees, which are native to the Cocora valley, Colombia's national tree, and the tallest palm species in the world growing as high as 60 metres.
Then trek into the cloud forest in the foot hills of Sierra Nevada national park. Don't forget binoculars, as there is plenty of birdlife here, keep an eye out for the brightly coloured hummingbirds, toucans and parrots.
The Lost City and Caribbean coast
Flying north to the Caribbean coast, explore the colonial cities of Cartagena and Santa Marta, before embarking on our 4-day trek to the Lost City.
It starts with a hike through the foothills of the Santa Marta national park, steeply rolling terrain with plenty of ups and downs, heat and humidity. Refreshing swims in the river, stunning views and reaching The Lost City make this a hugely rewarding trek.
After the trek end the tour with a flight back to Bogota, or opt for a few days of well deserved rest and relaxation in Tayrona national park's pristine beaches on the Caribbean coast.
