Trafalgar is following in the footsteps of its sister-brand, Contiki, by announcing plans to enter one of Latin America’s fastest-growing destinations among Aussie travellers – Colombia.

¡Vamos a Cartagena! Less than two months after Contiki added Colombia to its 2020 portfolio, Trafalgar has decided to do the same but with a more sophisticated and inclusive (all ages and types of travellers) approach.

Featured in the brand’s 2020 Latin America program, the 13-day Colombia Rediscovered itinerary will see travellers visit the Caribbean town of Santa Marta and the Tayrona National Park where they’ll meet one of the country’s most influential familiar – the Davilas.

A Be My Guest experience will see holidaymakers chat exclusively with the country’s leading anthropologist, Dr Santiago Giraldo, about local communities and culture. From there, there’ll be a cultural encounter with an indigenous mountain tribe who Dr Giraldo has been working with for years.

Other highlights include sightseeing in Bogota, experiencing the magic of Medellin, as well as a deep exploration of the old and culturally rich city of Cartagena.

“These unique experiences have been developed from the ground up with our local contacts to provide unprecedented access into the local life, history, culture and indigenous heritage of Colombia that cannot be matched elsewhere, by anyone.”

Christophe Ghaye, Trafalgar Chief Product Development Officer of The Americas

Mexico, Antarctica, Brazil & Peru are also included in the 2020 program.

Trafalgar’s Colombia trip can be combined with a five-day Ecuador extension, during which guests work side-by-side with charitable organisation ME to WE to assist in a sustainable development project.

The new Latin America program features 13 itineraries across eight countries in Latin America, including Mexico, Antarctica, Brazil, Peru and more.
