Description of Colombia tour, Colombia encompassed

This three week tour of Colombia will have you airborne and active as you experience the country’s highlights on a round-trip from Bogotá as part of a small group of like-minded travellers.

There’s just something about Colombia that encompasses the natural rhythm and drive of South America with the waft of freshly ground coffee on the warm breeze and the sounds of mambo, salsa and hands tapping on the skin of a cununo drum all helping to concoct a wonderfully wild, tropical vibe.

Away from Bogotá you’ll become immersed in the jungles and coastline of Tayrona National Park whilst a guided hike through the valleys and plantations south of Medellín always provide the perfect antidote to a night of salsa in the city.

Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Colombia tour, Colombia encompassed

Environment

As a member of AITO, we adhere to the AITO Sustainable Tourism Guidelines and as such, we aim to protect the environment and minimise pollution both by on-tour practices and procedures in our offices around the world. On this tour through Colombia, we visit several sites of natural beauty such as Tayrona National Park and Taironaka Archeological Ruins, as well as the historic centres of important colonial cities such as Santa Marta and Villa de Leyva. When visiting these areas, our tour leaders make sure that our travellers respect signage, follow the instructions of the local guides and do not leave any litter. They also ensure that they do not take any rocks or plants away with them, or buy souvenirs made of endangered materials. In Cartagena our tour guide also recommends to people that they should not use the horse and carriage that is advertised. The horses here may not get treated well and we are strongly against any form of animal cruelty. Thus the guide will strongly advise against passengers choosing to do this.

Our hotel in Bogota is located in the Historical Centre, a short walk from the main attractions including the Iglesia de San Francisco. In Cartagena, our hotel is located in the ancient walled historic centre again meaning customers can easily explore by walking. Navigating a city by foot is the best way to not only keep your carbon footprint low but also to experience hidden gems that you would not see from a coach window. We always consider the location when choosing accommodation and where possible opt for hotels or guesthouses near the important sites and local restaurants, meaning customers can easily explore by foot and not require transport.

Community

Community -One of the principle aims of our responsible travel policy is to support local economies. We ensure that our tours provide maximum opportunities to engage with local people, so that local economies benefit directly from our business and our travellers gain a genuine insight into a region and its people. The optional excursions that we can help to arrange while on this tour, such as a trip to the Totumo Volcano or a city tour of Cartagena, help to support jobs and the local economy because they are run by local operators. We also recommend that our travellers eat and drink at locally-owned restaurants or bars to ensure that local businesses benefit as much as possible from our tours travelling through the region.

Our stay at a local hacienda in the coffee region brings travellers into contact with local producers offering interesting cultural insights to rural farm life and coffee growing practices whilst putting money straight into the local economy.

Travelling with Respect – On our website’s responsible travel pages we provide a list of tips on creating good relationships between our travellers and the local communities that we visit on our tours. For example, for this tour we would recommend that clients learn some Spanish to try and connect with the local people, and we would advise researching the history, religion and local traditions of Colombia to help them appreciate the architecture and culture of those countries and thereby get the most from their trip while respecting local customs.
