Foreign Travel Advice

This is one of South America's most iconic journeys, travelling for 191 days between the historic and beautiful Colombian city of Cartagena and the fabulous party city of Rio de Janeiro. This trip is designed to show you the best of that party, as it includes 6 days at Rio Carnival.

Rio Carnival is like nothing you have witnessed before. The scale, the colour, the vibrancy and the music, will be an amazing culmination of your trip. With great trekking, Machu Picchu, the Emerald Coast, riding with Argentinian Gauchos, beautiful cities and history, the wilderness of Patagonia, not to mention the wetlands of the pantanal, this trip literally has it all.

It's a commitment of time to take in so much of South America, but we will get you away from the tourist centres as well, to learn about the heart and soul of the continent and what makes it really tick.

2 nights in vibrant Cartagena
2 Nights in the stunning Caribbean beach national park of Tayrona
3 nights to explore the infamous streets of Medellin
Explore the region of Salento and visit a coffee finca
Guided trek through spectacular Cocora Valley
2 night stay in the historic colonial city of Popayan

A long journey, which can be challenging at times and easy at others. A good mix of hotels, home stays, hostels and camping allows us to get away from the main centres. Some long day drives, but plenty of time to explore with numerous, multi day stays in the same location. Loads of opportunities for trekking and other activities.

Day 1 - Cartagena (6th October 2020)

Border Information: if joining in Cartagena, you will most likely enter Colombia at Cartagena Rafael Núñez International Airport (IATA code: CTG).

There will be an important group meeting at 6:00pm at the joining hotel - please look out at the hotel reception for a note from your leader with more details about this important meeting.

Please note that many of the options listed below will only be possible for those with extra time in Cartagena before the start of your trip with us - please contact the Sales team if you would like to book pre-tour accommodation with us to have extra time exploring Cartagena.

If you are continuing on from Panama, then your leader will have assisted you with airport transfers for your included flight to arrive in time for the joining meeting.
