Tour Guatavita Tour Zipaquirá City tour Bogotá Walking tour
Bogotá’s plateau and savannah is full of surprises. It has a long and rich history: from old indigenous empires to its more recent colonial past. And all it takes to learn and enjoy a good chunk of it is a daytrip with us!
Join us in this one-for-two visit to Zipaquirá and Guatavita, staples of the region. With us you’ll learn about precolonial history, local traditions and local ecosystems: all unique to the region.
Begin this daytrip by visiting with us the fabulous Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá. Walk through its salty halls filled with catholic symbolism with one of our expert guides and learn their curious history. Did you know an old salt empire once stood here?
Then, come with us to New Guatavita, where you can learn the history of the town and its ties to the legend of El Dorado. Follow this with lunch with an amazing view of the Tominé reservoir before venturing into Guatavita’s natural park. Here you’ll learn of the cultural significance of the lake and the characteristics of this peculiar ecosystem.
Finally, rest your feet and take one visit around the quaint little town before heading back to Bogotá.
