Weave through the lush landscapes of Colombia, discovering the country’s indigenous cultures and evocative Spanish Colonial heritage on a one-of-a-kind small group tour. Begin in Bogota, Colombia’s capital, where you’ll feel like a local at colorful Paloquemao, a major market featuring food from around the world. Travel north through the center of Colombia’s flower-growing industry to arrive at the Salt Cathedral, an underground church built inside a salt deposit. Visit the mountains and fertile valleys of the Coffee Triangle, dine in a hacienda, and then embark on a full-day tour of the pastoral region of the Cocora Valley. Complete the journey in Cartagena, winding through cobblestone streets and plazas lined with colorful buildings bedecked with flowers.
