In response to the rise in popularity of Colombia and Patagonia among millennial and Gen Z travelers, Contiki has launched five brand-new trips to those destinations, plus 13 newly enhanced trips across Latin America.
In Patagonia, the new itinerary will feature experiences such as a boat safari through Perito Moreno Glacier fields, a hike through the wilderness of Torres del Paine, and optional ice climbing at Los Glaciares National Park. Adrenaline-seeking travelers can get their fix in Colombia with paragliding or white water rafting in San Gil, while other adventurous experiences available will include trekking to Ciudad Perdida, the “Lost City,” and camping overnight on the coastline of Tayrona National Park.
New itineraries include the Patagonia Trail with pricing starting from $3,695 pp for the 10-day adventure crossing from Chile to Argentina, while participating in activities like horseback riding and hiking. In Colombia, travelers can choose between the 18-day Hola Colombia itinerary, the 12-day Colombia Quest, the 9-day Colombian Coasts & Culture, or the Lost City Trek, which spans five days. Starting rates for the Colombia journeys range from $639 pp for the Lost City Trek to $2,999 pp for the Hola Colombia trip.
In addition, the 13 improved trip itineraries across Contiki’s existing Latin America product offer more local experiences than ever before, including 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.
