Itinerary

Day 1. Arrival to Bogota

Arrival to El Dorado airport in Bogotá, the capital city of Colombia at 2600 meters (8530.1837 feet) above sea level and which is quickly becoming one of the Latin American urban highlights with more than 7 million inhabitants. Check in at your hotel in the city located in the old historical district of La Candelaria surrounded by plenty of cafes, museums and churches.

Day 2. Bogota City Tour

Breakfast at the hotel. Today we’ll enjoy a City Tour beginning with a ride on the cable car to the peak of Cerro Monserrate at 3160 meters (10.367 feet) asl, from which you can get a great view of Bogotá and its surroundings. We will then walk trough the historical suburb of La Candelaria with its old churches and colonial style houses, its Plaza Bolivar and stunning Cathedral. We will also visit the Museo del Oro (The Gold Museum) and Fernando Botero’s permanent exhibition at the Banco de la República. Lunch on own.   

From here you can catch your flight / bus to the next destination or continue to explore a bit more in the surroundings of Bogota.

Zipaquira & Guatavita Lake

After picking you up at your hotel we drive for about 1 hour to visit one of the Colombia’s landmarks, the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira, a huge underground salt cavern almost 200-meters below ground.This amazing structure dates back to pre-Colombian cultures and was used as a place of worship before converting into a Catholic Church.  Get stunned at the towering religious effigies carved by local artists out of the very rock itself as you wander amongst the monolithic caverns. Lunch on own and time to explore the town of Zipaquira where you will find interesting historic buildings and a charming street market. Right after that, we head towards Lake Guatavita, a pristine lake to the northeast of Bogota famous for its link to the legend of El Dorado. The legend of the Lost City of Gold apparently started around the lake, where priests made offerings and carried out important religious ceremonies. We will drive back to Bogota to end the tour.
