What will you do in this Camino Real from Barichara to Guane Day Tour?

The Camino Real from Barichara to Guane is a path of 5,5 km and walking it can take from 2 to 3 hours. The hike has a low-medium level of difficulty and most of the route is on a wide cobblestone path so no one can miss this experience. This path was declared a national monument in 1977 and restored in 1988. It is a faithful reflection of the work of the Guane Indians who inhabited the area, since it was built with stone, so representative of this region.


Depending on where you are staying, our driver will pick you up and you will head to this magical small town considered one of the most beautiful small towns in Colombia.

You will head to the start of the path and during 5.5 kms we’ll walk with you at your own pace. Our guide will be telling you about some of the history of this trail, as well as stories of the region, its costumes and traditions and why this Camino Real was so important decades ago, and how through tourism, santandereano people want to promote it more.

You will have free time to explore this little town, take a break and a refreshing local drink, and then visit its viewpoints, church and enchanting small streets and old houses.

Once you had time to rest, you will take the way back to Barichara through the same path, to wrap up a day of good walk to remember.You will also have the option to take a little bus that take people back to Barichara in case you are tired.

After visiting both places and trekking for a while, you will head back to your hotel so you can rest the rest of the day. We think this is one of those memorable experiences that will make you remember and treasure your trip to Colombia and its magical diversity. Join us and be part of this.
