Plus, enjoy the magnificent construction of the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira, the #1 destination of Bogotas Surroundings on this ultimate private tour.

Start your day by driving 2 hour away from busy Bogota into the savannah, enjoy the view and take the chance to ask as many questions as you like, we are always open to give great local advise. 

Arrive to Guatavita and get ready to start a soft hike of about 1 hour.

Feeling hungry?

After the hike, hop on back into 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, jump back in the car and head to Zipaquira. Dive 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!
