• A city tour of Bogota, enjoying its famous museums, food and culture is a great start to the tour.

  • At the heart of the coffee growing area is the small town of Salento. You can take a tour round a coffee plantation and enjoy a dip in thermal hot springs.

  • The hike into Los Nevados National park takes you to land of cloud forests, humming birds and volcanoes – plus the prehistoric looking frailejones plants.

  • The colonial town of Cartagena offers plenty of shopping opportunities, and yoga, cold drinks and warm waters aid relaxation after the hike.

  • Visit traditional village El Pueblito, a lovely day hike from the coast.

  • Relax in sleepy Palomino, with the crashing waves of the Caribbean, gentle music, clear skies and great food to accompany you.

The first day had a lot of uphill but it was worth it - when we arrived at the first Finca, I loved it.

Everyone was so friendly, the mountains were amazing and so many humming birds.
