Explore the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira & a traditional Colombian farm!

A tour of the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira is one of the most spectacular day trips from Bogota. During this day tour from Bogota, we will take you to the small, traditional town of Zipaquira, home of the stunning structure built inside the extensive caves of an old salt mine. The Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira is a true testimony to the miners' faith in a higher power and one of the most notable achievements in Colombian architecture.

After visiting the salt mine, we will head to an hacienda (a Colombian farm). The farm owners will welcome us like family and prepare a delicious and traditional Colombian lunch. Afterwards, you will get a hands-on experience as you participate in important farm and agricultural activities. This hacienda tour, plus exploring the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira, will introduce you to an authentic side of Colombian culture and you will enjoy the beautiful countryside scenery surrounding Bogota, Colombia.

Departure Time: 9 am Tuesday - Sunday

Salt Cathedral & Countryside Tour Details

Zipquira Salt Cathedral Tour

Salt Cathedral of Zipaquira

Zipaquira is located about 50 km north of Bogota. It will take us approximately 1 hour to reach our destination. We will spend about 1.5 or 2 hours inside the Salt Cathedral. During our time in the cathedral, an expert guide will take you through the Stations of the Cross. At each station you will see a symbolic representation of events from Jesus' last journey before his crucifixion. At the end of this walk, we will come to the main dome and the three naves of the cathedral that are interconnected by a gigantic crack, which symbolises the birth and death of Christ. You will learn about Colombian culture, religion and architecture during this day tour. Once we finish our visit to the cathedral, we will head to a traditional Colombian farm.

Traditional Colombian Farm

The farm owners will give us a warm welcome and start this portion of the Bogota day tour by showing us the old farmhouse. We will eat a traditional Colombian lunch in the main dining room of the hacienda. This is your chance to learn a little bit about traditional Colombian food. After lunch, we will explore the fields around the house then head to the milking station. A farmhand will even teach us how to milk the cows at the hacienda. We will then go to the hacienda's main kitchen where the farm owners will teach us the step-by-step process of making the type of cheese popular in this region of Colombia. We will end this Bogota day tour by enjoying a delicious cup of Colombian coffee prepared by the person in charge of the kitchen. Afterwards, we will start the journey back to Bogota where we will drop you off at your hotel.
