This fascinating 6 hours tour will show you the salt production process that took place since the prehispanic times, plus it will take ou around cozy Zipaquira village in order to interact with locals and why not make a stop at the local souvenir shop at the end.

Once your bilingual private guide has met at your hotel as per your instructions, tour heads to the country side for a scenic trip that will get you to the largest salt cathedral on earth. Feel free to make stops along the road if you are taking photos or simply to grab a snack. There are restrooms and several stores so we recommend bringing Colombian pesos since not every store takes credit cards.

Discover amazing art work and fascinating lighting effects throughout the 180 meters deep layout.
