Bogota Full Day Tour.

“Lets start this Bogota Full Day Tour that promises to take you on an unforgettable journey to two of Colombia’s most iconic attractions: the Salt Cathedral and the Sacred Guatavita Lagoon. Your adventure begins with a personalized pick-up from the lobby of your hotel, where our expert guide will greet you with a warm smile and knowledge about the day ahead.

As we depart from the municipality of La Calera, prepare to be mesmerized by the breathtaking panoramic views of Bogotá  beneath us. Feel the excitement build as we make our way to Sesquilé, a charming town steeped in history and surrounded by natural beauty.

Here, with green landscapes, we’ll embark on an ecological hike that will lead us to the main Sacred Lagoon of the Pre-Columbian culture. Envision the ancient rituals that once took place on these sacred grounds, as our guide shares fascinating tales of the legendary El Dorado ceremony. See where was actually found the most iconic piece of gold from the Golden Museum.

After immersing ourselves in the mystical beauty of Guatavita, we’ll continue our journey to the municipality of Zipaquirá, home to one of the most awe-inspiring architectural wonders of Colombia: the Salt Cathedral. In the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá you will have the opportunity to descend approximately 180 meters (590 feet) below the surface of the earth to explore the cathedral’s underground chambers. As they journey deeper into the salt mine,  pass through a series of tunnels and caverns, each revealing different aspects of the cathedral’s architectural wonders. The main chamber of the cathedral, where the central nave and main altar are located, lies at a depth of around 80 meters (262 feet). Here, you can admire the intricately carved salt sculptures, crosses, and religious icons that adorn the walls and ceilings, all illuminated by soft lighting that accentuates the natural beauty of the salt rock.

As we finish exploring Zipaquirá and begin our return journey to Bogotá knowing that we’ve embarked on an adventure that will stay with us forever. (Tour for a minimum of 2 pax or request personalized quote)
