Get picked up from your hotel in the morning. You’ll immediately embark on a trip through Colombia’s past, offering a chance to immerse yourself in the country’s ancient Muisca culture. Begin the day in the historic center of Bogotá known as “La Candelaria,” an area that’s been declared a National Monument. You’ll head to the Gold Museum, where you’ll get to discover the site’s more than 34,000 pieces of jewelry from various Hispanic cultures, among which is the outstanding ‘EL Dorado Raft.’ Then continue through the north of Bogotá along the Sabana to the old Muisca town of Sesquile (which means “hot water” in the Chibcha language). Have lunch in a traditional and typical restaurant on the banks of Lake Tominé, where you can choose from the best of Colombian cuisine. Once we finish lunch, your guide will accompany you to take an easy trek of around 1-hour to Guatavita Lake. This lake, sacred to the Muisca community former habitats of the area, is known for being the scenery of the story behind El Dorado Raft seen before at the Gold Museum. As legend holds, the Cacique (Chief) used to cover his body with gold dust and immerse himself into the lake while his people threw gold and plate metalwork to the water to show gratitude to the Gods. Before your guide takes you back to Bogotá, you will have the opportunity to visit Guatavita “La Nueva” town, finishing with a drop-off back at your hotel.
