Chosen by Lonely Planet as their top destination for 2017, Colombia’s years of turbulence are beginning to be a distant memory. The country is now considered a model of biodiversity with stunning Andean landscapes and modern, welcoming cities. Our Colombia holidays bring together vibrant cultures, unspoilt Caribbean beaches, charming colonial cities and the fertile rolling hills of the Coffee Region. Despite the upheavals of the last century, Colombia still lays claim to the first constitutional government in South America.
Dominated by the magnificent Andes mountain range, Colombia was colonised by the Spanish in 1499 who dubbed it the New Granada. It’s one of the most bio-diverse countries in the world so be sure to include some time exploring the extraordinary animal, bird and plant life when planning a holiday to Colombia.
Its cities too are bustling and full of life too. The capital Bogota is a cultural revelation, with its astonishing Gold Museum and the superbly preserved downtown area, La Candelaria. Here you can revel in the fascinating mix of old colonial and modern attractions. The remarkable Salt Cathedral at Zapaquira is a highly recommended excursion and don't miss Villa de Leyva, one of Colombia’s most charming colonial villages. Bogota’s location high in the Andes is breath-taking and sets the tone for a holiday in this spectacularly scenic country.
