  • Marvel at the underground Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá
  • Visit the traditional town of Cajicá


Benefit from pick-up at your hotel in Bogotá, and then board a classic steam train at an old railway station that only operates at the weekend. Journey to the colonial town of Zipaquirá, famous for its salt mines and underground Salt Cathedral. Relax aboard the 19th-century train as it makes its way slowly through the flatlands of the savannah. Upon arrival, take the free shuttle to the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá to marvel at a feat of modern engineering. Enter an old salt mine adapted to function as a place of worship and marvel at how artists and sculptors have created unique interpretations of Catholic symbols from the salt. Take the shuttle back to the train station to board a train to the town of Cajicá, where you will get 2 hours to explore and enjoy lunch at your own expense. Return to Bogotá aboard the classic steam train in the afternoon and get dropped off at your hotel on arrival.
