Now is the time to visit Colombia. Perfectly balanced between trendy yet non-touristy, this sizzling country is definitely hot right now. With its drug rich past confined to the Netflix series of Narcos, Colombia’s shaking off it’s dangerous reputation like a vigorous shimmy at your salsa class in Cartagena. We’ll go on a Medellín tour yet this is just one drop in the Caribbean ocean of our Colombian getaway. There’s a tasting tour of some of the world’s best coffee, rooftop parties in Cartagena and a private speed boat cruise around the sparkling Rosario Islands. From buzzing concrete jungles to tropical rainforests, this lively adventure sees you party with the vibrant locals and stay beside palm fringed beaches. Just like emerging from your steamy rainforest trek onto a blissful golden beach, Colombia is entering an AMAZING new era. Pablo who?

Itinerary

Day 1: HOLA BOGOTA

BOOM you’ve landed in Bogota. The endlessly vibrant capital of Colombia where your 13 day adventure begins. Here you’ll step into your private transfer, ready to be whisked off into a Colombian world of colourful cities, tropical rainforests and paradise beaches. First up, arrive at your hotel where your expert guide will be waiting in the lobby. This evening we’re heading to Andrés DC where its insane décor, amazing food and sizzling party atmosphere are perfect for kicking off the adventure in style. Bienvenidos to Colombia.

Day 2: CICLOVIA & CULTURE WITH A BANG

Every Sunday morning, the streets of Bogota become filled with bikes when the streets are shut off from traffic for some serious pedal power. Here at Flash Pack we like to get involved with local culture, so this morning we’re hopping on bikes for a 3 hour cycling tour around Bogota. We’re then leaving the saddle behind and heading to the historic region of La Candelaria. You’ll get to explore the impressive Plaza de Bolivar, the renowned Botero Museum and the dazzling Gold Museum. Culture isn’t all statues and paintings though, so next up it’s time for an eccentric Colombian game involving gunpowder and beer. Known as ‘Tejo’, this health and safety nightmare of a game is actually a traditional sport. The aim is to create a mini explosion by throwing a metal disc called a ‘tejo’ towards a gunpowder lined target, so what could possibly go wrong?! The only currency is beer so BYOB, grab your tejos and let the chaos begin!

Day 3: A ROCKIN’ GOOD CLIMB IN MEDELLIN

From one buzzing city to the next, after breakfast you’re boarding a plane to the mountain-surrounded city of Medellín. And unless you’re still mid Narcos, this city is no longer ran by Pablo Escobar and has firmly shaken off its notorious reputation. Here we’re heading to Guatapé where the huge rock of La Piedra del Peñol and its iconic staircase can be found. Just a mere 654 steps, the climb to the top is definitely worth it once you catch a glimpse of the views across the Guatapé reservoir. Take in the stunning view of the reservoir, because next up you’re kayaking across its shimmering surface. You’ll then be transferred back to your hotel in Medellín, just as the vibrant night life begins to hot up.
