Early start today! You will be picked up and transferred to the airport for your flight back to Bogota. When your flight lands you will be met by your guide and driver who will transfer you onward to Villa de Leyva.
En route, you will stop and explore Raquira. This is the Potter Capital of Colombia, and the town is a montage of brightly painted facades, a jumble of craft shops, and stacks of freshly fired mud and clay pots. It’s a vibrant little place!
Continue onward to Villa de Leyva, check into your hotel, and explore the old town at leisure. Villa de Leyva is located some 150 kilometres north of Bogota, about four hours by car, passing through stunning savannah landscapes on the way. With its myriad of winding cobbled streets, lined on either side by orange roofed white washed houses, and surrounded by mountains, the village is a charming place to while away a few days. With scarcely a modern building in site and boasting one of the largest cobbled-stoned squares in South America this village where time stands still is a great place to see a snap shot of historical Colombia preserved in its entirety.
Just outside Villa de Leyva, there are some wonderful walks and excursions that can be made within half a day or a day. Alternatively you can take in some of the other sites such as visiting ancient giant Fossils, Muiscan observatories and indigenous sites or simply out on horseback to enjoy the enchanting scenery.
