What to expect

On this tour, you'll step into a journey full of fantasy, history, mysticism, and landscapes.

The first stop will be the white-housed village of Guatavita. You'll learn about the unusual history of this town and wander through its cobblestone alleys and handicraft stores. Next, you'll enjoy a panoramic drive through potato crop fields and farmers' houses up to the highest point, where the sacred lake lies hidden among mountains.

Inside this natural reserve dotted by lush and humid forest vegetation, you'll feel the mystical energy that made this lake a sacred place for the Muiscas. Inside this natural reserve, you'll learn about the connection that the ancient Muiscas had with nature and the symbolism behind the gold offerings that awoke the gold rush of Spanish treasure hunters.

On your way back, you'll have a spectacular view of the Tominé Dam valley, and Cerro de las Tres Viejas (the hill of the three old women). Finally, you'll have a stop at the small town of La Calera, where you'll taste the splendid cheese and yellow corn 'arepas' that attract many visitors.
