Travel to the past and embark yourself on a trip full of fantasy. After being picked up at your hotel, we will be on our way to an old train station – which nowadays only works during the weekends taking dozens of visitors from Bogotá to Zipaquirá. This antique railway worked as a commercial link between Bogotá and the salt mines. Today, the same classic steam train that dates back to the end of XIX century is used for travelers. It makes its way slowly through the flatlands of the Savannah all the way to the old village of Zipaquirá.
Once there, you can continue the journey to the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá on a shuttle bus. This splendid work of modern engineering and art was opened to the public in 1995. On this tour, you will enter an old salt mine that was adapted to be a cathedral. Here, the materials found underground have been manipulated by artists and sculptors, and with the help of special lighting effects they have given birth to a very unique interpretation of earthly Catholic symbols.
After you exit the cathedral, the same shuttle service will drive to the traditional village of Cajicá. There you will have time for lunch and for wandering around the main square. Afterwards, the train will depart and get you back to Bogotá.
At about 4:30pm you will reach the capital’s train station where our driver will be expecting you to bring you back to your hotel.
The shuttle that will tke you back to the train station in Zipaquirá will only wait for and hour and a half please have this in mind.
This tour is ideal for families with children who do not need a tour guide but the comfort of private transportation within the city. Entrance fee to the cathedral and lunch not included. Only available during weekends. On Saturdays the train usually runs on a modern engine. If you would like to hire a bilingual expert guide for this tour, please choose the language of your preference. A surcharge applies.
