Join the rollicking Septima Challenge (you and your team gallivant along the Ciclovía route practicing your Spanish on unsuspecting locals in a race to complete as many tasks as possible in two hours) and other good-time tours run by this agency, the brainchild of two friendly Australians.

Other options include exploring Bogotá’s emerging craft-beer scene on the Bogota Craft Beer Tour, or heading into the wilds on a weekly hike up the mountains behind Chapinero, to La Chorrera waterfall, or to Guatavita Lake and the Salt Cathedral.
