Head into the serene highlands of Colombia's famed coffee region and discover the sweeter, softer side of this much misunderstood country on an Intrepid adventure for solo travellers only. Take a tour of a working coffee plantation and learn how to roast the perfect blend, fall in love with the laidback pace of charming Salento and immerse yourself in the sometimes sophisticated, sometimes raucous Medellin. Then trade the country's lush interior for its coastal spoils and end your solo journey with a spell in oh-so-romantic Cartagena – the perfect end to this cool Colombian adventure.
