Product Description

Salt Mine in Nemocon Tour

Mining is very popular in Nemocon, because they have so many saltworks in this area of Zipaquira and Nemocon with some sectors open to public and others exclusively used for excavations.

To take a stroll along a 2.500 meters path located 60 meters under the ground is not an everyday activity. Salt mines in Nemocon are a hidden treasure waiting to be explored allowing us to see the saline formations from more than 40 years ago. In this salt mine is located the world’s biggest salt crystal in a shape of a heart, and it receives the name of “The Colombian Heart”.

After visiting these amazing places, you will enjoy a typical Colombian lunch, with all its characteristic flavour. You also can combine this tour with another city like Zipaquirá and Guatavita and get to know other beautiful touristic places from the Bogota Savannah.

    I did 2 separate day tours with Hansa: the gourmet food tour and the Zipaquira/Nemocon salt mine tour. I would highly recommend both.

    Marcello was my guide for the gourmet food tour. We had a planned itinerary around food (which was amazing), but he also asked about what I’ve seen so far in Bogota. I told him what I had seen so far, and based on that we hit a few things that he recommended: the main plaza, the Colombian “White House”, some really cool church in La Candelaria (Nuestra Senora del Carmen). We also popped into a couple museums in the old town. I was flying solo for this tour, as my wife had a work event that day, so it was just me and Marcello bro-ing it out for the day. He was a lot of fun to hang out with, and very knowledgeable. They couldn’t have picked a better guide for this tour. Food is one of the main attractions in Colombia in my opinion, so this is a great tour for a first-timer.

    Byron was our guide for the Zipaquira/Nemocon salt mine tour. He was such a nice guy and he was like a human encyclopedia. My wife and I learned so much! Of all the sights to see in the Bogota area, I’d say this is the top of the list. The Zipaquira salt cathedral is truly spectacular. It may not sound like it’s that impressive, but believe me it is. This is definitely a full day tour: we left at 9 and got back at around 6:30pm. But absolutely worth it. Byron was one of the best tour guides we’ve ever had (anywhere in the world) and it was a pleasure to spend a day with him.

    Edwin was our driver for both tours, and he was the man as well.

    Highly recommend this tour company if you are visiting Bogota.

    Inside of Bogota Colombia, a sprawling urban city with a population of more than 9 million are tucked away 2 small towns. The cute colonial towns of Zipaquira and Nemocon both contain perfectly preserved salt mines with superb lighting effects and history, as well as being used for a Hollywood movie location. BUT, what makes this trip really shine is the friendly and knowledgable guide Daniel Pedraza who is associated with Hansa Tours. We were met at the airport by Daniel as a greeter with our name on a sign which felt special and everything just kept getting better. Daniel took us to a cute restaurant named Brasos Del Llano inside Zipaquira, just superb. Then we arrived at the Nemocon mines and were awed by all the sights. Even the surrounding farming area looked perfect. The booking was easy, our guide Daniel was great and the mines spectacular. I give it 3 out of 3 stars for perfection!!!
