Colombia Train Tour Bogota to Zipaquira

A Day Trip from Bogota to the Salt Cathedral Aboard a Classic Locomotive - Tour Extension

3 Days / 2 Nights
From 375
* flights not included

Summary

For railfan enthusiasts traveling in Colombia, the tourist train aboard a diesel locomotive from Bogotá to Zipaquirá makes a great day trip. Board the train at the station in Bogotá in the morning, and then ride 2 hours until you reach Zipaquirá. The train ride is scenic, and includes musicians performing typical Colombian Andean music. From there, enjoy a guided tour of the Salt Cathedral, and have lunch in the nearby town of Cajicá. In the afternoon, take a tour of the Nemocon mines and have some free time to explore the town on your own. The train returns to Bogotá in the late afternoon. Please note, the train only runs on Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays.

Note: This is a tour extension, combine this tour with one of our full package tours.
