Bogota day tour Guatavita

Indigenous culture and the legend of El Dorado

This day tour from Bogota will introduce you to the customs and culture of the indigenous people who lived in the Bogota, Colombia area. We will also visit the spot many believe gave rise to the legend of El Dorado. Join us on a day trip outside Bogota to visit Lake Guatavita and Sesquile, two places of great spiritual meaning for native Colombians.

We will explore Lake Guatavita, a spectacular natural place and one of the most important Muisca sacred sites from pre-Columbian times. We will also visit an actual Muisca community centre in the nearby town of Sesquile, travel through the splendid countryside landscapes and stop at the beautiful colonial town of Guatavita. 

Departure Time: 8 am Tuesday - Sunday

Detailed Itinerary

Departure Time: 8am

We will start this Bogota day tour by heading to Lake Guatavita, a natural paradise and one of the most important Muisca sacred sites from pre-Columbian times. The mountains surrounding this site will amaze you as you climb to view the sparkling green lake. After learning about the Muisca rituals and the Legend of El Dorado, we will head to Guatavita La Nueva.

Guatavita La Nueva lies only 15 minutes away from the Lake. During our visit there, we will learn more details about its history, legends and popular myths. You will also have some time to explore its beautiful cobble streets before heading to Sesquile for lunch.

Then, we will visit an actual Muisca community centre in the nearby town of Sesquile. At the Sesquile settlement, you will see how today's Muiscas are trying to maintain their old traditions, despite adopting modern life and technology. Once we finish our visit to Sesquile, we will head back to Bogota and drop you off at your hotel.

Finish Time: 4pm
