For now, it is time to help #StayAtHome
Tour Guatavita Tour Zipaquirá City tour Bogotá Walking tour
Experience the Lake Guatavita in a worth visiting tour to hear the local stories and legends surrounding this mysterious place. A two-hour drive from busy Bogotá there’s a lake synonymous with the legend of El Dorado and a whole town submerged beneath it.
Today you will not find the city of legend, but a place rich with colonial history and indigenous mythologies. We are unsure it ever existed. But here, along the shores of this famous lagoon, you’ll find a place rich with colonial history and indigenous mythologies.
Join us on this day trip to New Guatavita and learn why the original town was flooded. Then, come with us on a short hike to the lake and discover what this unique ecosystem has to offer. On the shores of the lake, learn about the old indigenous traditions that gave this lake its renown and the possible reasons behind the wonderous legend.
On your way back, you can choose to enjoy a traditional lunch with a wonderful view of the neighboring water reservoir before visiting the town’s artisanal market. After the tour, take in one last look and we’ll be on our way back to Bogotá.
