LA GUAJIRA & LOST CITY
Begin your journey through Colombia’s stunning landscapes by arriving in one of its most unexpected—La Guajira. You’ll fly to this northerly desert, where the rolling dunes meet the swell of the sea. This beguiling location is also ideal for learning to kiteboard or windsurf.
Next, you’ll fly by helicopter to the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountain range—the tallest coastal mountains in the world. Fly over the renowned ‘Lost City’ for an exclusive look before landing in remote tundra to meet the Kogui community. You’ll discover how this indigenous pre-Colombian society has managed to maintain its way of life for half a millennium.
Afterward, track pumas in the jungle with a conservationist guide. After sunset, venture out again for a safari to discover Colombia’s biodiverse nocturnal world.
CARTAGENA & LOS LLANOS
Cartagena is a pastel-hued city of lively cobbled streets bright with bougainvillea and colorful shops. Experience this atmospheric city’s vibrant nightlife and discover its Salsa rhythms.
Make a journey south next, firmly off-the-beaten-path, to the Los Llanos region. This stunning swathe of wetlands and savannah is home to a vast array of species. Binoculars at-the-ready to spot exotic birds such as the semi-endemic white-bearded flycatcher or pale-headed jacamar.
Discover the UNESCO-listed heritage of the Llaneros cowboys as you ride with them and learn how to lasso and corral cattle, as well as the essential techniques involved in capturing an anaconda. Gallop through the long grasses as the afternoon skies begin to color orange and relax beneath the stars in your luxury hacienda eco-camp.
