Guatavita Lake Tour - El Dorado Legend

The Legend of El Dorado recounts a precolonial time when the indigenous Muisca priests submerged themselves in the sacred lake of Guatavita. Covered in gold dust, they conducted sacred ceremonies to pay tribute to the spirit of the water with gold artifacts forged and hammered by their most skilled artisans. The gold, however, was coveted by the Spanish conquistadors and subsequent gold seekers who attempted to steal the valuable pieces by different means.

During this Day Tour, you escape the urban landscape and experience a breathtaking hike to this famous lake while being escorted by our expert guides. You will travel to Guatavita in a private vehicle and will have the unique chance to also look at the fascinating natural landscapes of Bogota’s savannah. Following your visit to the lake, you will arrive in the village of New Guatavita.

The hamlet, characterized by captivating architecture and situated beside the picturesque Tomine reservoir, is notable for having some of Colombia’s most beautiful artisanry.
