Galavanta is a private travel destination management company –DMC– in Colombia, specialised in gastronomy, art, culture, nature and adventure.
With an office in Cartagena, and operations in Colombia’s top destinations, our team is able to truly personalize each traveller’s journey, with ‘ungoogleable’ experiences that go beyond the ordinary. We thrive on being creative, pushing boundaries, and traveling to far-flung parts of Colombia, to uncover new and epic experiences.
Luxury travel in Colombia is beyond the five-star hotel. Luxury travel in Colombia is meeting fascinating locals, getting insider access, going beyond the tourist trail, and immersing in a destination’s culture.
The essence of Galavanta is in the creativity and passion of our team, our partners/providers, and the captivating people we work with across the country. Hosts who welcome travellers like family; chefs that go above and beyond to personalise a guest’s menu; guides and experts that show off their region with excitement and pride.
Forget the “city tour” and discover this vast and diverse country away from the touristy sights and crowds. ‘Ungoogleable’ doesn’t mean expensive. Experiences can range from visiting local art galleries with a cool art curator, to a private dinner in a theatre with Cartagena’s philharmonic orchestra. For creativity budget is a factor, but never an issue.
Get insider access into Colombia’s gastronomy, art & design scene. From exclusive sessions with renowned artists, collectors, and curators, to spending time with captivating chefs and fashion designers. Travel like a local. Feel like a local.
Our private aviation services, helicopter expeditions, private villas and yachting itineraries, allow our guests to discover the most remote and unimaginable places in Colombia, without sacrificing comfort and style. Ancient ruins, indigenous tribes, secluded bays, stunning canyons and far-flung waterfalls. Who said you can’t have a gin and tonic in the middle of the Colombian jungle?
We design each trip from a blank canvas. We love learning about each traveller, understanding what moves them, and discovering what makes a perfect trip. We take the time to select the ideal hotels, handpicking the best hosts, and curating the restaurant selection. Each client’s journey is treated as a unique project –no repeats, no copy-paste.
Our hands-on approach and multiple-reconfirmation process with partners and providers ensure punctuality and seamless logistics. Our team is constantly in touch with both guests and partner agents, and ensure we respond to requests, changes or emergencies quickly and effectively.
We are committed to driving a positive impact on our ecosystems and communities. Implementing sustainable practices in our operations, minimising the use of plastic, encouraging the use of reusable water bottles, offsetting carbon emissions, and designing travel experiences that support conservation and community projects.
