When we land in Bogota, 2600 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.

Finally, after a stopover flight in Bogotá, we will arrive in the vibrant and beautiful city of Cartagena, with its century-old walls, castles, colonial-style churches and picturesque streets adorned with colonial and republican-style balconies and facades.

Our journey ends with the return to Bogotá where we will take our flight home.
