In October 2016 the Colombian Government and the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia, more commonly known as the FARC, signed a historic peace agreement partially ending the longest-running civil war in South America, and one of the oldest ones in the world.
Join YPT for our specialist FARC tour of Colombia that takes us through the capital Bogotá, beautiful Parque Tayrona reserve, historic Santa Marta, the colonial town of Cartagena, and finally the former cocaine capital of Medellín, with us checking out a whole host of FARC related stuff, indigenous peoples, and stunning nature along this 9 day adventure.
It might have had a chequered past, with landmines, and the remnants of the civil war and organised crime still very much omnipresent, but Colombia is slowly waking from its past and hitting the challenges of reform head on.
Join our adventure before the country is changed forever! If this tour is not enough, then it can be combined with the Che Guevara Revolutionary Tour in Cuba!
