You will come back to the hotel after 17:00. The sunset starts at 6 pm. You are going to ride on small unpaved roads and small and adventure trail until the top of the mountains.

Standard itinerary

Day 1: A car drive to the farm and ride to San Miguel De Sema town

RivasRidingcolombia will pick you up in your hotel in the morning and you will travel by car for around 3-4 hours to a farm where you have lunch and after it, you will start the horse ride. During this travel, we will tell you about how the local people live in this area and you will eat some typical goodies. After finished the horse ride, we will drive to a hotel outside of Villa de Leyva town where you will sleep all nights.

You are going to explore the mountainous area of the Raquira region. There are many small and adventure trail going up to the top of those mountains. You will pass through oak forests and brooks.

During the rides, you will see beautiful landscapes of the mountain range and the valleys of Villa De Leyva, Raquira, and Tinjacá. You will visit a typical rural small town (San Miguel De Sema). You can also visit the church and the typical construction and eat some goodies.

Ridingcolombia uses to ride faster than the rides in Europe. You will do a lot of canters but not very much gallop. You will ride for about three to four hours.

Day 2: Ride to Fuquene Lake landscape

After a good breakfast and a 30 minutes’ ride by car, you will get to the place where the horse ride will begin. Today, you are going to go up to the mountains range, taking different unpaved roads or trails. You will pass through oak forests and brooks. Getting close to the top of the mountains, you can see behind and watch beautiful landscapes.

After you cross the mountain range, a new valley is open to your view to observe the Fúquene Lake from the top of the mountain. Until the 1970s, Laguna de Fúquene was Colombia’s largest lake. Today, only 3,000 hectares are left from the originally 10,000 hectares because the flat lagoon was dried or filled with land to gain acreage for agriculture and stock farming. You will stop there to enjoy the landscapes, to let the horses rest, to eat snacks, and to rest a little bit. After the arrival, you will have a tardy and succulent lunch. The length of the horse ride will be around 4-5 hours.

After lunch at around 15:00, if you are tired, we can go back to the hotel or we can do a short visit to Villa de Leyva. Villa de Leyva is the small town that better preserves memories of old colonial times and expresses the best of Spanish influence. It was founded in 1572 and built according to Spanish architectural norms. Even the location of the city (in a valley) seems to be an emotional encounter of the New World with places from Spain.

Day 3: Comeback to Bogota

It is the day you come back to Bogota. You can do a hike for one until two hours or you can buy gifts in Villa de Leyva town. After that, we will start the travel to Bogota and we will stop in the middle of a car drive for lunch in a nice restaurant with a beautiful view.

Note: this tour can be redesigned according to your preferences.
