Tour description provided by Viator

One of the mandatory points in your trip in Colombia, must be the Salt Cathedral of Zipaquirá. This wonderful place, located just over an hour from Bogota, was chosen in 2007 as the First Wonder of Colombia. The design of the spaces inside the mine, the decoration, the lighting, the artistic pieces and the fact of being traveling a space nestled in the mountains, make this an unique and unforgettable experience. You also visit the town to take some pictures and then return to Bogotá. If this were not enough, the trip to and from Zipaquirá will be decorated with the landscape of our plateau, which it will certainly make your day something simply magical.
This 6-hour tour will take you to Zipaquirá, a small historical town north of the city of Bogotá and home to one of the most important salt mines of Colombia for its economical, cultural and historical value. Transportation will pick you up in the location of your choosing and take you to the Zipaquira Salt Mine. Once you reach the mine, depending on the version you choose, you have included a audio-guide (7 languages) and sometimes you may have guided tours in Spanish (every 10 minutes) or English (every hour o´clock) -basic and plus- or the private tour guided all the time. Also, inside the mine you will learn about the process of salt formation, part of the mining process and witness an incredible light show that will make your day truly magical. Once you have finished your visit, the transport will take you back to the location of your choosing in the city of Bogotá.
