COLOMBIA TREKKING TOUR 15 DAYS

The Colombia Trekking Tour is a trip where Colombia is discovered in all its natural beauty, a wonderful place where thousands of colors are found, from the white of the beautiful beaches of the coast, with the crystalline blue of the Caribbean Sea, with the contrast from the green of the jungle, until you reach the snowy peaks of the Sierra Nevada.

The Colombia Trekking Tour is a trip that as its main activity offers the trek to the Lost City (Teyuna), preceded by a visit to Bogotá and its beauties of the colonial era with two excursions to the Laguna De Guatavita, where the legend of El Dorado and Zipaquirá was born, where the Catedral De Sal is located, a suggestive cathedral built in a salt mine. Then relax on the wonderful beaches of Tayrona Park and, finally, in Santa Marta and Cartagena, two splendid cities on the Colombian Caribbean coast.
