Our Expert Guide will take you to discover the secrets of Tayrona's Lost City, on a 4 day adventure where you'll put your physical abilities to the test while surrounded by lush nature.

The first day, on board our 4 x 4, we'll travel 2 and a half hours to the region of Mamey, where we'll have lunch and begin our search for the sacred place of the Tayronas (ancient inhabitants of the Lost City). By the end of the afternoon, we'll have arrived at Camp 1, surrounded by rivers, waterfalls, and natural pools to relax in while we wait for dinner.

The second day we'll descend into the Buritaca River Valley to explore some indigenous houses that make up a small village known as Mutanshi (indigenous Kogui people). Today's exploration lasts approximately 7 hours, passing through the jungle of Sierra Nevada and admiring its natural diversity, before arriving to Camp 2 where we'll eat, rest, and spend the night.

The third day will begin with climbing the 1,200 steps leading into the Lost City, a road built by the Tayronas. Once there, our guide will show us around the site, giving us detailed information about this magical place full of relics and ancient legends. We'll spend the morning enjoying the scenery of our destination, having enough time to rest and take pictures. Finally, we'll enjoy a re-energizing lunch and continue on our way, taking the same path to reach our camp where we'll have dinner and spend the night.

The last day of the adventure begins with an energy-fueled breakfast to give us the energy we need to make it back to our starting point. Our path will be filled with rivers and cool waterfalls to refresh us along the way. Upon arrival in Mamey, we'll have lunch and board the truck waiting to take us back to Santa Marta.

Join us and explore the stories and legends hidden in the ruins of the Lost City!
