Journey to the heart

Columbia with Healing Retreat

Colombia has it all!

Columbia is that country you dream about visiting someday - it’s all about its colors, flavors, beautiful people, magical traditions, and mesmerizing landscapes. Colombia has it all!

Between the Pacific Ocean and Andes Mountains, our journey unfolds before you. All you have to do is to let your mind and soul explore the beauty of Colombian culture: cosmopolite cities, food and coffee flavors, rich history - between the indigenous tribes and Colombian colonial background - and people’s beliefs in their sacred spirits.  

Join our journey of heart and let’s discover together all the wonderful attractions of Colombia. Starting with its heart - Bogota - continuing with the colorful streets of Guatape, the famous Piedra de Peñol, with the Caribbean coast where you will have the chance to see one of the biggest highlights of our tour: Cartagena. Following Colombian history, we will explore ancient forts, plazas, museums, and famous restaurants, getting lost in the labyrinth of old streets filled with bursting colors.

Colombia’s shores are telling the story of the Pacific Ocean and we will stop to listen on the sunny beaches of Santa Marta and on a beautiful hike trail up-up-up to meet with the Wiwa tribe in Colombia’s Sierra Nevada Mountains and to witness all their rituals, way of life and peace of mind.

The ocean is waiting for us so we are heading back to its shores, to embrace the salty breeze and the warm waves. Our next stop is a 4 days yoga retreat in Palomino where we will have the chance to relax and unwind in the beautiful eco cabanas, nestled in between palm trees and tropical fruit gardens. Breath and flow into your favorite yoga pose, to the rhythm of the waves, in the beachfront yoga studio.

The first part of our adventure ends in the heart of nature inside the Tayrona National Park - a UNESCO jewel that will charge our batteries for the amazing days ahead of us.

Starting the second part of our journey in a comfortable plane seat that will take us to Barichara which was nominated as the most beautiful town of Colombia. Here we will start our initiation into the Ayahuasca ceremony.

Beautiful days lying ahead of us, celebrating life, connecting with our soul in the heart of nature. And getting ready to say goodbye to beautiful Colombia thanking it for all the lessons, experiences, and discoveries.

Join us! Colombia has something to offer to everyone!

Discover the perfect combination between colours and flavours of Colombia within yourself. Create memories for a lifetime!
