Bogota: Horseback Riding Tour

1. Bogota: Horseback Riding Tour

Ride on a Colombian Creole horse along the fauna, flora, rivers, creeks and lakes that make the Andean highland a perfect scenario for a thrilling day out in nature during your stay in Bogotá. On this tour, you will be driven from Bogotá to a rural location 40 minutes to the south east of the capital. There, a local cowboy will be expecting you with tame - yet powerful - horses ready for the adventure. After some instructions and advice, you'll start the ride, in the company of a guide (if option selected). Going up to 3,200 MAMSL, you will enter an Andean ecosystem, which is very different to the stereotypical image of the tropical jungle many visitors have about Colombia. After an hour's ride, you'll reach a fantastic lookout point where you'll be able to see the Monserrate Hill and even Bogotá in the distance. After a break (for stretching your legs and having a snack), you'll head back to the ranch via another path, making a loop. Get dropped off back at your hotel after returning to the ranch.

Bogotá: Horseback Riding from Guadalupe to Monserrate

2. Bogotá: Horseback Riding from Guadalupe to Monserrate

Dear bold traveler: If you are up to exploring the wild side of a place, this was made just for you. The Eastern Hills are a staple of Bogotá’s outdoor activities. Great hikes, amazing views, and religious monuments look over the busy capital below. And among these hills, the twins Guadalupe and Monserrate are most well-known and visited. With us you will get to know them in a whole new way: riding! For a start our guide will pick you up at the hotel. The driver will head south through the mountains to the first destination: Guadalupe, where you’ll have the first views of the city while enjoying a typical snack. Then you will be taking the trails that connect the sister hills. The driver will drop you off right where horses will be waiting. Energized, mount your horse and ride the trail that will take you back to Colombia’s religious colonialism and the transformations it caused. Enjoy the horseback ride tour through mountain and forest into Monserrate, learn of the indigenous and rural traditions and their connection to the hills, before reaching the famous viewpoints and cathedral. Once at Monserrate you can rest your weary haunches after the ride and take in the amazing views: the whole plateau is yours to take in. Then, you are welcome to explore Monserrate with us, its myths and legends still alive today. Finally, seize the afternoon enjoying the views before descending back to Bogotá in cable car or funicular. Our team will make sure you end up this day by arriving safely and thrilled. Take the experience of visiting the most touristic spot in Bogotá to the next level, by transforming it into a memorable journey.

What people are saying about Bogotá

This tour was simply phenomenal. From start to finish, our guide, Felipe, made my friends and me feel at ease. None of us had any experience riding a horse before, but it didn't take long for us to get the hang of it. And the experience, food, and scenery were absolutely amazing! We didn't have any direct contact with Felipe or his organization until the day of. Just make sure you're waiting in front of your hotel by 8:00 am and Felipe, or some other guide, will come get you. For the price, you can't beat this. If you want to explore the countryside of Bogota, ride a horse up a mountain all in the middle of an amazing view, I would recommend this trip without any reservation. Felipe, if you're reading this, thank you! Keep up the good work, my friend.

Great experience more so because we were the only ones on the tour - special thanks to our guides - Maria & Francisco - they were fantastic! Feedback to future travellers (and the company) - the sights were great the trail were was is not easy - ideally should not be the first time on a horseback, do believe everyone should be given helmets.
