Lost City Trek & Taganga

Description

Not for the faint of heart, this trip to Ciudad Perdida, the Lost City in Colombia's Sierra Nevada, is five days of trekking through jungle, wading through rivers and climbing the 1,200 steps to the City. It's all worth it when you get to experience this astonishing place and learn about the history of the Tayrona people who built it over 1,000 years ago.

The adventure begins as you take a private transfer from Santa Marta airport to your hotel in Taganga.

This morning you'll make the three-hour walk to el Mamey farm, where you'll stop for lunch before a further two-and-a-half-hour trek along the valley of the Rio Buritaca. There'll be a chance to relax and enjoy a refreshing swim before dinner at the farm where you'll stay overnight in a hammock.
