Wild Frontiers, Colombia Explorer: “Vibrant Colombia is a land of contrasts and legends, an entire continent encompassed by one country. After being off the travel map for some time, Colombia is gradually moving back into the spotlight as an exciting new travel destination, and this itinerary is designed to capture some if Colombia’s incredible diversity.Ranging from the savannahs and wetlands of the southeast that are rich in biodiversity, to the paradisiacal beaches in the north, Colombia has a staggering array of landscapes and terrains. From the cosmopolitan metropolis of Bogotá to the cobbled alleys of the colonial towns, we will explore all aspects of the country and indulge in a multitude of activities, from bathing in mud volcanoes to adrenaline sports in the adventure capital of San Gil. Taking in the spectacular underground salt cathedral at Zipaquira, and stunning colonial Barichara, there will be plenty of opportunity to experience the real Colombia, meet the warm and hospitable locals and have a truly memorable trip.”
