Tour Overview

Reaching Colombia’s Lost City is an unforgettable adventure and one of South America’s best treks. Built around the year 700, it was the main urban center of the ancient Tayrona civilization and is one of the most important archaeological sites for the investigation of this culture. Access to the ancient ruins is by a 4-day trek through the jungle and incredible ecosystem of the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta including a climb up some 1,200 stone steps. The ruins consist of circular platforms, staircases, roads and canals built in stone that served as the basis for houses made of straw and bahareque. If you are fascinated by the history of Latin America and want to discover one of the most amazing regions of Colombia, don’t miss this trip!
