Bogota & surroundings

Bogota is with more than 8’000.000 inhabitants without doubt the biggest city of Colombia. A visit to Colombia isn´t complete without a visit to the capital. We offer several tours in Bogota of which the citytour gives you the most complete impression of this enormous and interesting metropolis. During the standard city tour we visit the colonial area 'La Candelaria', Plaza Bolivar, Chorro de Quevedo, Donación de Botero, Cerro Monserrate and of course the world famous Gold Museum (Museo de Oro).

Bogota is more than only an interesting city. In the direct surrounding of Bogota there are many interesting destinations that we can visit as a day tour or as a tour of 2 or even 3 days. Bogota for example is surrounded by mountains and paramo's. In the north you can find NP Chingaza, in the east Mataredonda and in the south NP Sumapaz. In the south you can also find the cloud forest of Chicaque. More to the north you have Laguna Guatavita, Desierto Tatacoita and the salt mines of Zipaquira and Nemocon.
Other options you can find in western and south western direction of Bogota. Here we have to decent the cordillera in the direction of the Magdalena Valley, the temperatures and vegetation become more tropical. Melgar, Girardot, la Mesa, Anapoima, La Vega and Villeta are popular destinations to escape the low temperatures and the hustle and bustle of Bogota.

Besides these above mentioned destinations there are also many adventures sports destinations possible in the surrounding of Bogota. Besides the paramo´s where we can organize a trekking, you can go rock climbing in Suesca or white water rafting in Tobia. Another popular sport in Tobia is 'Rappel', or 'Torrentismo', a sport where you can descent several waterfalls with professional harness and rope.

Under the tab programs you find more information about the different possibilities and the corresponding prices. Be aware, these are  standard options but of course we can also offer custom made programs in consultation with the client.
