When we land in Bogota, 2300 meters closer to the stars, we will find a vibrant country, proud of its ancestry, inhabited by happy and cordial people, our journey begins in the capital, where you can see a modern city that contrasts perfectly with the vestiges of history in its traditional neighborhood of La Candelaria, famous for its picturesque streets adorned with balconies and facades of a thousand colours evidencing the legacy of the city’s colonial past, as well as our Muisca indigenous heritage.

Continuing the way our journey has reached the largest tropical rainforest on the planet, only 2 hours away on a commercial flight from Bogota, we will be able to interact with the most mega-diverse place on the planet, exploring the different jungle ecosystems, through placid and exciting journeys, always accompanied by local environmental interpreters, Indigenous people from the Tikunas, Cocamas and Huitotos ethnic groups, who from their ancestral knowledge and life experience will present us with the home of thousands of animal and vegetable species, telling mythical and colourful stories such as the Yakuruna or Kurupira, elves who protect the river and the forest, always transmitting their love, respect and appreciation for the mother forest.

From the Amazon to the Caribbean Sea, this will be a great day where we will cross our country from south to north, on a flight with a stopover in Bogota you will arrive at Santa Marta, the most beautiful bay in America, this will be our starting point for a journey framed by beautiful beaches and the permanent company of indigenous cultures such as the Kogui of the Sierra Nevada and the Wayúu of the Guajira desert.

Our journey continues back to Bogotá where we will spend the night to continue our adventure the next day. Now we are going from the mountain to the amazing Pacific Ocean with a short but very interesting stop in Medellín, an innovative and friendly city.

To get to the small town of Nuquí in Chocó, we will take a regional flight with a duration of 1 hour and a half approximately, once there we will feel the essence and purity of the black race who with their cultural legacy will proudly accompany us to discover wonderful beaches, mangroves and colorful towns, without forgetting that they have the most delicious traditional cuisine of the country, it will definitely be an experience that our mind and heart will never forget. If we travel between the months of June and October we will be able to live the great adventure of watching the magnificent Humpback whales that visit our Pacific coast during this time.

Siempre Colombia invites you to explore Colombia, in a wonderful 17 day tour where apart from knowing and experiencing our country, you can connect with water, fire, earth, air but above all and most importantly you can connect with yourself.
