Culture & Nature of Colombia
Colombia is blessed with abundant and sometimes unbelievable natural and cultural riches in all of its territory.
Its diverse geography means that the Colombia is home to a range of unforgettable landscapes such as glaciers, paramo (high-altitude tundra), cloud forest, humid jungle, savannahs, desert and coastline among others.
Our nature and culture tours incorporate a wonderful mix of these different landscapes visiting sites which aren’t readily available to the average tourist. Relaxing stays in rural farmhouses and lodges allow our clients to immerse themselves in the local culture, wherever we may be visiting. Beautiful hot springs and remote walks in the cloud forest leave our clients spellbound with Colombia.
We have access to the best national parks, nature reserves and fauna and flora sanctuaries in the country, places that we have been visiting for years and know intimately.
These experiences are just the tip of the iceberg of what we can deliver in Colombia.

What our clients say
“We chose to book our honeymoon trip through The Colombian Project and were absolutely blown away by Colombia and the service we received from Juan and his team…………..Overall I would say that The Colombian Project went above and beyond the call of duty to ensure we had an amazing honeymoon and a real once in a lifetime experience which we will remember forever and I am very grateful to Juan and his team for all their help…………..I would recommend The Colombian Project to anyone who wants a truly unique and personalised experience and who wants to get under the skin of the real Colombia, rather than taking the easy tourist options!”
