Contiki adds 5 trips to Patagonia & Colombia in 2020 Latin America program

Contiki has launched a new Latin America 2020 program featuring five brand new trips to Patagonia and Colombia, and 13 improved trips across Latin America. 

The tour operator's new and improved adventures offer hand-picked itineraries of quality and comfort, designed to immerse clients in local Latin American culture. The five new adventures incorporate once-in-a-lifetime experiences including a boat safari through Patagonia’s iconic Perito Moreno Glacier fields, a hike through the wilderness of Torres del Paine and optional ice climbing at Los Glaciares National Park. 

While in Colombia, clients can jump-start their adrenaline with paragliding or white-water rafting in San Gil, trek to the ‘Lost City’ of Ciudad Perdida and camp overnight on the pristine coastline of Tayrona National Park.

New destinations & experiences

The addition of Patagonia and Colombia means further expanding the impressive number of trekking and hiking experiences available across Contiki’s 32 total trips available in Latin America, which include access to and locally guided tours through more than 10 iconic National Parks, Reserves and protected land areas throughout the region. 

In addition, the 13 improved adventures across Contiki’s existing Latin America program offer more local experiences than ever before. Clients can now experience a day trip to Argentina’s Gaucho country for lunch at a traditional Estancia, Tequila tasting in Mexico’s famous town of Tequila and sunset sailing in the Belize island of Caye Caulker.

Contiki’s new program also offers young clients new experiences aligned with the brand’s sustainability program, Contiki Cares powered by TreadRight. New experiences on offer include spending three additional days deep in the Amazon jungle in Ecuador working alongside a local community on a sustainable development project on The Lava Line and Ecuador & Galapagos Island Hopper adventures in partnership with ME to WE; taking part in a tree-planting program in Monteverde, Costa Rica; and visiting a llama farm in Cusco to learn more about conservation efforts.
