Full description
Escape the restricted schedules of organized group tours and visit two of the must-see attractions of the savannah outside Bogotá on an 8-hour day trip to the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá and Lake Guatavita.

Benefit from pickup at your hotel at your desired time, and then journey into the countryside at leisure. Make your way to the Salt Cathedral, considered a site of pilgrimage in Colombia, where three sections represent the birth, life, and death of Jesus. Explore the amazing attraction independently, safe in the knowledge that your driver will wait to take you to Lake Guatavita when you are ready.

Go on a nature walk upon arrival at the lagoon, and marvel at the unique landscape. Located in the Cordillera Oriental of the Colombian Andes, the lake is thought to have been caused by the dissolution of underground salt deposits, resulting in a kind of sinkhole.
