It is enough to know that 75% of Bogotá is rural to understand that there are natural treasures to discover. A few years ago, tourism in Bogotá might have sounded unattractive. Today this city is configured as a place of great cultural diversity and a destination to discover incredible places surrounded by nature. We have designed a tour that combines the best of the Historic Center of Bogotá with the wonderful paramo ecosystem that surrounds the city.

This tour includes; first day, visit to the Gold Museum, Tour of the Historic Center, visit to Cerro de Monserrate; and the second day, trekking to the Páramo de Sumapaz or the Páramo de Chingaza, this walk will depend on the departures scheduled for the weekend of the trip.

🌇 Learn the history of the city, see the most representative places in the historic center and visit the Museum, the largest collection of pre-Hispanic goldsmithing – 34,000 pieces of gold and tumbaga – in the world.

🌱 Get to know the rural area of Bogotá and walk a path surrounded by the beauty of the frailejones that take care of the amazing paramo ecosystem.

🌱 Surround yourself with the beautiful nature that you will find in this ecosystem.


Day 1

The Gold Museum is a jewel that keeps the best of Colombia's pre-Colombian history. Also, we will walk through the La Candelaria neighborhood, this tour will allow us to learn about the political and cultural history of Bogotá. We will be able to observe great works of architecture to learn about the evolution of this great city, and through anecdotes we will be able to transport ourselves to different eras that marked the history of Colombia.

Day 2

We will leave Bogotá very early to meet our environmental interpreter, who belongs to the surrounding communities and will accompany us throughout the tour.

We will walk through a paramo ecosystem where we will learn about the most representative flora of this ecosystem. We will also learn about its ecological importance in water conservation. And we will immerse ourselves in the stories that surround this territory and the ancient Muisca civilization, original inhabitants of this land. Accompanied by local guides they will tell us about some of the plant species, their characteristics and uses. We will be able to talk about peasant customs and stories of local communities.


La Candelaria Historic Center

La Candelaria is a colonial and republican neighborhood where many of its houses still preserve their architecture and have been declared assets of historical and cultural interest. The steep stone streets of La Candelaria, which seem to reach to the sky, have seen the history of the country pass by. Long before Gonzalo Jiménez de Quesada founded this city in a valley of fortresses and built twelve huts in the Chorro de Quevedo, it was a sacred site for the Muiscas.

Gold Museum

The Bogotá Gold Museum preserves the largest collection of pre-Hispanic goldsmithing – 34,000 pieces of gold and tumbaga – in the world and is an unmissable setting on your visit to the capital of Colombia. Each piece that rests in the Gold Museum is an exceptional testimony of the cultural richness and the variety of visions of the world that existed in Colombia thousands of years before the Spanish arrival. This is, without a doubt, a magical setting that you should know.

Sumapaz Paramo

One of the main functions of the ecosystems that the Park protects is the water regulation of the upper basins of the Tunjuelo, Sumapaz, Blanco, Ariari, Guape, Duda and Cabrera rivers as providers of ecosystem services for the Capital District and the departments of Meta. , Huila and Cundinamarca.

Chingaza National Natural Park

It is an extensive territory that contains one of the main water sources that provides water to much of Bogotá. We will tour the lush mountains of this beautiful natural park. We will travel to the refuge in Monteredondo, where we will begin the 4-hour walking adventure to have a unique contact with the paramo ecosystem.
