Fall under the magical spell of the breathtaking hummingbird observatory, a hidden gem up in the Andes Mountains. This is a place where the birds fly freely while you enjoy the moment and the excitement of seeing them less than 1 meter away. It is also an ideal place to disconnect from the hassle of the city and connect with nature. Love to take pictures? This is the place you´ve been looking for! Bring your camera, sit back and wait for the perfect shot! 

Feeling hungry?

After a peaceful time at the Hummingbirds Observatory, jump back in the car and continue the journey through the Savannah. We will stop at Balú to enjoy a delicious lunch. This restaurant is owned by two young chefs, Pipo and Anita, who are defying local gastronomy by using local ingredients that have been forgotten by many. They are redefining what Colombian food is about, as they have been chosen to represent us in different contests worldwide.  

Once you have lunch, head to Zipaquira, a small, traditional Colombian town, known for its high cultural and historical value. Follow us into the Salt Cathedral, Colombia´s famous wonder and consider to be one of our greatest architecture achievements. First built by the miners who wanted divine protection while they worked over 8 hours underground. Over time, it became a religious and touristic center. Descend 180 meters (590 feets), explore the mine and discover all the symbolisms hidden in the temple as you learn all about this masterpiece, fun facts, history, traditions and more!

Leave the Salt Cathedral back and departure to Bogota. We will make sure you have a smooth journey back to your hotel or if you prefer we can leave you at another point of preference within the city. 

Throughout the tour, enjoy a big amount of storytelling, as we love to share our history, culture, personal stories, traditions, fun facts and more. Have questions or need some advice? No worries, we are open books ready to share everything with you! So, what are you waiting for? Join us on this Private Day Tour to the hummingbirds observatory and the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira.
