Overview

As with for many of its neighbours, football is a way of life in Colombia. Even through turbulent times, football has been able to unite people.  Discover Colombia’s passion for football and delve into the fascinating and alluring history and culture on this two-centre Colombia football tour.

Start your adventure with 6 days in Medellin.  Nestled in a fertile valley, Medellin’s rocky past needs no introduction and we will find out more during our time here; however we focus on the football and two of Colombia’s finest clubs; Deportivo Indepentiente Medellin (DIM) and Athletico Nacional.  We will have a matchday experience at both clubs and will even watch a training session for Athletico Nacional.  We will also take a day trip to the spectacular town of Guatape.

We spend our last 5 days in the Andean city of Bogota – one of the most high-altitude capitals in the world.  We have a matchday experience at the mighty Millionarios as well as a trip to Montserrat and a chance to play a traditional game of Tejo with locals.

Accommodation, matches and sightseeing are all included in the price.  In each city you will be with an expert local host who is both an ambassador for their city and a passionate football fan – they will help you have a truly local, authentic experience.  Plus you will share this trip with a small group of like-minded football fans, creating an experience which is enjoyable, memorable and connected.

Itinerary

Day 1. Welcome to Colombia

We hope you are prepared for the trip of a lifetime. We have an amazing 11 days planned. But today is for meet and greet. We will pick you up from the airport and bring you to the hotel we have booked for the group where you can get to know your host and yellow travellers. In the evening we will head to a local bar for a welcome evening.

Day 2. City Tour

Explore this amazing city.

Day 3. DIM Matchday Experience or Envigado Matchday Experience

PLEASE NOTE - YOUR MATCHDAY EXPERIENCE MAY BE MOVED TO ANOTHER DAY IN THE MATCH SCHEDULE BASED ON MATCH SCHEDULE

Today we will be joining the fans of Deportivo Independiente Medellin (DIM) for a matchday which promises to be fiery and colourful, Before the match your local hosts will take you to the area where the DIM fans congregate to soak in the pre-match party atmosphere

Day 4. Atletico Nacional Matchday Experience

PLEASE NOTE - YOUR MATCHDAY EXPERIENCE MAY BE MOVED TO ANOTHER DAY IN THE MATCH SCHEDULE BASED ON MATCH SCHEDULE

Another matchday. Today, along with 40,000 other fans we head to the Estadio Atanasio Girardot for a Atletico Nacional matchday – and we are going to make sure you have the full experience. We will meet up with the home fans to enjoy all the pre-match build up, along with some drinks and local food, before taking our seats for the main event.

Day 5. Medellin Sightseeing and Graffiti Tour

Today is all about getting under the skin of Medellín; we will take a sightseeing tour of the city and discover how it has transformed from one of the most dangerous cities on earth to one of the most forward-looking and creative.

One particular area of Medellín, a neighbourhood called Comuna 13, also known as San Javier, has the most tumultuous history of the city, once labelled the most dangerous community due to its astronomical homicide rates and its forced displacement of thousands of residents. It is now a redeveloped, vibrant area known for its street art.

Day 6. Day trip to Guatapé

No trip to Antioquia is complete without at least a day spent wandering through the colourful streets of Colombia's most colourful town. Guatapé is the perfect place to visit to get away from the hustle and bustle of Medellín. The main reason that people visit Guatapé is to climb the famous Rock of Guatapé – also known as El Peñol Rock – to enjoy the spectacular panoramic view of the surrounding islands and lakes of the artificial Guatapé reservoir.
