Colombia Off-road is one of the most complete active programs we have on our portfolio. It combines both, adventure and culture, while visiting place on and off-the-beaten track. This itinerary takes through different ecosystems: from a trek in the Andean highlands at the foot of the snowcapped volcanoes, down to 4-Wheel drive over the dry deserts of the Guajira peninsula, to the humid jungles of the Lost City trek. Covering also the cultural icon like the coffee area, Caribbean beaches and ending at the historical city of Cartagena de Indias.
