Published by CNN | By Mark Johanson
Looking to book an epic once-in-a-lifetime travel experience in 2016? The world’s top luxury travel specialists share the destinations they’re most excited about and how to explore them in style.
Colombia: Once known for its drug lords and guerrilla fighters, Colombia has rapidly re-branded itself as a safe and alluring destination for global travelers, welcoming 260% more visitors last year than it did a decade ago.
Katie Marshall, PR manager with active travel specialists Butterfield & Robinson, called Colombia “a country emergent.”
“Despite its geographic standing as the puzzle piece linking the northern hemisphere with the south — and its access to two oceans — Colombia has also been little explored, leaving huge tracts of land unknown, ungoverned and unmapped,” she explained.
Butterfield & Robinson has capitalized on increasing interest in Colombia with an action-packed tour in 2016 that will see travelers bike through Bogota, hike through cloud forests and coffee plantations and kayak in the clear waters off the Caribbean coast near Cartagena.
Butterfield & Robinson’s 7-day Colombia Multi-Active trip from Bogota to Cartagena has five set departures next year with prices starting from $5,695 per person.
