Andes & Amazon between Cartagena and Quito

This adventurous journey takes in one of South America’s most fascinating and least-visited countries: Colombia. It's not your average tourist destination yet the country seems to have it all: idyllic Caribbean beaches, elegant colonial architecture and amazing Andean scenery. Journey the length of the country top to bottom, beginning by exploring the historic town of Cartagena – a World Heritage Site – stopping off to relax at the spectacular San Bernardo islands before having the chance to take part in numerous adventure activities around the beautiful lakeside setting at Guatape. Our travellers tell us that their favourite part of the trip (and unique to Dragoman) is a stay on a Fairtrade coffee plantation in the Zona Cafeteria, located high in the Andes amidst stunning mountain scenery, closely followed by enjoying the nightlife of Medellin and Cali (the latter with mobile discos!). This camping and hotel-based trip ends in Quito, the capital of Ecuador.
