Colombia Intense

During this 14-day tour through Colombia we will visit some of the best known and some of lesser-known parts of the country. The Colombian Intensive Tour takes you from the capital, Bogotá, with its world-famous “Museo Del Oro”, to the virtually untouched region of the Pacific coast, where marvelous beaches and deep tropical forests are waiting to be discovered. We also head into the coffee growing region.

We begin our Colombia adventure with a half-day tour in the bustling city of Bogotá, starting with a walk around Bogotá’s main square, the Plaza de Bolívar and the government buildings around it, before entering the nearby “Candelaria” old town, the colonial center of the city. We follow this with visits to San Francisco Church and to the world-famous Museo Del Oro (closed on Mondays), which houses more than 30.000 pre-Columbian gold artifacts. We end with a trip by cable car to the summit of Monserrate hill, Bogotá’s best-known landmark, with a wonderful view of the whole city and the savanna beyond. Read more
