Our trip starts at 7:00 am from your hotel in Bogotá. Our driver and English speaking guide (optional, see inclusions for details) will meet you at your hotel and we will start a 1.5 hour drive towards the east of the Capital. In the half of the way, we will make a stop at La Calera, and have a taste of the nationally acclaimedarepas boyasenses with tinto (our softer version of Americano). After clearing the national park entrance permit (all arranged in advanced by DestinoBogota) you will be introduced to the local guide who will be with you along the hike. The guides are native of this region and have a deep knowledge of flora and fauna, will point at most interesting aspects of the rout and will tell you anecdotes related to the native cultures and traditional farming communities of the area.
The hike lasts about 3 hours and riches a lagoon called Laguna de Buitrago. After the hike, we will return to the cabin and have a comforting agua de panela (hot drink made with sugar cane jaggery). Here you will have the chance of using toilets and change to warm and dry cloths and shoes (yes, bring a spare change of cloths because the chances of getting wet are very high).
After having a close contact with nature’s water Factory, our guide and driver will bring you back to your hotel or any other point of the city just in time for lunchtime.
