Overview & Highlights
Take in some of Colombia’s most striking natural scenery on this covid-conscious holiday, from the tranquil mountains of the coffee region to the tropical beaches of the Caribbean coast, with time included to allow you to visit the beautiful walled city of Cartagena.
- Half day tour of coffee farm

- Half day excursion to Rio Blanco Nature Reserve
- Full day hiking in Tayrona National Park
- Half day walking tour of Cartagena
Colombia is home to an astonishing array of natural highlights, which you’ll explore in depth on this covid-conscious journey. Beginning in the lush rolling hills of the coffee region, enjoy tranquil mountain walks and get a feel for the local way of life on a working coffee farm. Spot rare, colourful birds in the nearby Andean cloud forest, while crystalline waterfalls and thermal springs await in the highlands. It’s then a dramatic change of scenery as you fly to the sparkling bays and tropical jungles of Tayrona National Park on the Caribbean coast. Round off your journey with a stay just outside the beautiful walled city of Cartagena, perhaps Latin America’s most romantic and intriguing colonial centre.
Surrounded by nature and visiting fewer locations, you’ll have the chance to soak up the breathtaking scenery in peace and quiet, while staying entirely within your comfort zone.

What our clients say
97% of our clients rated their experience with us as Excellent or Good.
"I have many great memories, but for me going to sleep and then waking up to the sounds of the rain forest both at Rock View Lodge and Atta Rainforest Lodge was magical. Also, taking a shower under a starlit sky at Atta was wonderful! A continuous joy was the friendliness of all the local people we encountered on our journey. They seemed to be genuinely pleased that we had chosen to visit their countries."JB, London
"The trip lived up to my expectations. It's a great opportunity to follow a less travelled path through three completely different, but fascinating countries - Guyana, Suriname and Guyane (French Guiana) - and to experience beautiful scenery, remote locations and vibrant cities (especially Georgetown, which I loved). Well done JLA for organising this tour".

Our Trailblazer Colombia holiday stays in carefully selected locations that avoid the crowds, allowing you to see the highlights whilst always staying within your comfort zone.
