Tour Guatavita Tour Zipaquirá City tour Bogotá Walking tour
A short three hour drive from busy Bogotá there’s a lake synonymous with the legend of El Dorado. Beneath its waters, a town lies submerged, perhaps hiding all that promised treasure!
Today you will not find the city of legend. We are unsure it ever existed. But here, along the shores of this famous lake, you’ll find place rich with colonial history and indigenous mythologies. Join us in this ” Tour Guatavita “, daughter of the legend.
Visit this young town, full of stories, and learn why the first one was flooded. Can you see the houses under the water? Then, come with us on a hike to the lake and discover what this unique ecosystem has to offer. On the shore of the lake, learn with our local expert about the old indigenous traditions that gave this lake its renown and the possible reasons behind the wonderous legend. Maybe you’ll catch a glimpse of some gold!
Before heading back to Bogotá, enjoy a traditional lunch with a wonderful view of the neighboring water reservoir and maybe visit the local artisanal market. There are tons of cool souvenirs. Finally, take in one last look and we’ll be on our way back to Bogotá.
