Explore the undiscovered Colombian Amazon and enjoy observing the varied wildlife, birdlife and marine life including humpback whales at the deserted beaches on the Pacific coast.
Arguably the most diverse country in South America, Colombia offers an exciting array of places to visit from the vibrant capital of Bogotá, through the rich, verdant landscapes of the coffee region to the stunning UNESCO-listed walled city of Cartagena and archaeology of San Agustín.
Soaring Andes peaks give way to an unspoiled Caribbean coastline via cobbled colonial communities and its own Amazonian jungle. Having shed its unsavoury image in recent years, it is now safe to travel to areas that were previously off limits. The influence of earlier colonisation is always apparent in the Spanish architecture, and of course the language, yet Colombia has retained an immense variety of its own cultural traditions in the form of distinctive handicrafts, colourful dress, lively music and frequent festivals.
Colombia is also one of the most bio-diverse countries in the world. The natural regions of the country are home to practically every type of ecosystem on earth, from tropical rainforest and Andean cloud forest to open savannahs and high-altitude moorland.

"I was fortunate to join the first departure of our new tour... This was an opportunity for me to experience a new Jules Verne tour first hand and to discover the countries in the same way as our guests."
