Galavanta is a start-up specialized in experiential luxury travel in Colombia. We are a fast-growing and dynamic company looking for hard-working, creative and enthusiastic individuals with an entrepreneurial spirit.

Galavanta designs travel itineraries for high net-worth individuals primarily from England, United States, Canada, and France. We work with our clients to modify the itinerary until we jointly achieve the perfect blend of luxury, adventure, cultural immersion and relaxation. Our extensive knowledge of Colombia enables us to handpick the best hotels, restaurants, experiences, private transportation, and support personnel based on guests’ preferences. We also collaborate with topic experts (historians, archeologists, artists, chefs), jet and helicopter companies, and private properties to provide our guests with one-of-a-kind experiences. We then meticulously coordinate every detail of the travel logistics to guarantee a perfect trip.

Galavanta was founded by two McGill University MBA graduates, who were originally born and raised in Colombia and France. At Galavanta, we strongly believe employees are our key strength, and therefore our main priority: happy employees create happy customers, which results in positive business results. We encourage work-life balance, a healthy and positive working environment, and a comfortable and creative office space/design. Galavanta strongly supports sustainable tourism and community involvement to contribute to the Colombia’s development.
