Know More about this tour

Travel north of Bogot by steam (or oil) train on this round-trip rail journey! This unique experience is perfect for the whole family. After pickup from your hotel, head to La Sabana station to board the historic train.

Depart the Bogota station for the first stretch of the train ride. During the 3-hour ride, listen to music from a Colombian band while munching on delicious food from the onboard snack bar (own expense), and enjoy picturesque views out the window of the gorgeous landscapes that make up the Bogota savannah.

When you arrive in the town of Zipaquir, youll have one hour of free time to explore on your own. Zipaquiras most famous attraction is the Salt Cathedral (entrance at own expense). This impressive church, built within the tunnels of a salt mine, originally opened in 1954 and was rebuilt in 1991, when 250,000 tons of salt were removed. This stunning structure is truly a must-see sight in Zipaquir.

After your hour in Zipaquir, re-board the steam train for the ride to the town of Cajic, where youll have two hours of free time. Browse the local shops and stop for a delicious Colombian lunch (own expense).

When your free time in Cajic is up, board the train one last time for the journey back to Bogota.
