Our most popular tour, the trek to the Lost City is an unforgettable experience and a must-do for anyone serious about getting to know Colombia. The Lost City is an archaeological Tayrona territory of an unknown city dated back to the year 800C.E., over 500 years before Machu Picchu. To arrive at this Tayrona archaeological masterpiece, one must trek through the vast jungle environment of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta and then ascend around 1200 ancient stone steps. The trek will take you up and down the Sierra while offering unbeatable scenery and wildlife. Once in the Lost City be prepared to have your breath taken away by the network of roads and circular plazas which demonstrate how technologically advanced the ancient Tayrona people were and which give you a deeper appreciation for the history of the Colombian coast.

Remember you get a free beer at the end of your tour.
