Walking in Colombia

Trek through crystal-clear rivers, jungle and gorgeous valleys to arrive at Ciudad Perdida, the 'Lost City'. The Lost City was built by the Tayrona people in the 11th-14th century and it disappeared off all maps for hundreds of years before being discovered by treasure hunters in 1975. The only way to get there is on foot and its isolation and overgrown state affords it an air of mystery. We also discover the capital, Bogota and the colourful streets of Cartagena on walking tours.

Why Book this tour
The lost city was built by the Tayrona people in the 11th-14th century and it disappeared off all maps for hundreds of years before being discovered by treasure hunters in 1975. It took 200 years to construct and is 600 years older than Machu Picchu. In the year 1300 it had a population of 300, but the site was abandoned in the 1600s. Unlike the train to Machu Picchu, the only way to get to Ciudad Perdida is by trekking through the jungle, ending in 1200 steps to the site. The isolation and overgrown state gives it an air of mystery.
