Experience the highlights of Santander region with this exciting day planned to take you to the beautiful Chicamocha Canyon and the lovely town of Giron. Enjoy the landscape, learn about the history of the region and try the delicious local food.
The first destination will be Mesa de los Santos, a road trip that will take us around 45 mins. Mesa de los Santos is the favorite destination of people living in Bucaramanga to have a relaxing weekend away of the busy city life. It is a great place to do some fishing, paintballing, quad biking, paragliding and camping. We will visit a touristic center of the town that is typical from Santander with a lovely rustic market. This will be a perfect chance to admire the simple way of living of the locals, their custom and traditions.
After this stop, we will drive to the “teleferico”( cable car) station to not only admire the journey to the National Park (Panachi) but also to discover this beautiful place in the heart of the canyon. The national park of Chicamocha is a must see destination for anyone visiting Colombia, so we take you there to have the chance of admiring the amazing views of the canyon (227 km long and a depth of around 2 km). The park´s main attraction is the cable car (6,3 km long) that go all the way down the Canyon. It is considered one of the longest cable cars in the world, lasting around 20 mins each way. While in the park, you have the opportunity to hear the history of the region while taking amazing pictures of huge monuments that represents the popular revolt known as the “Revolución de los Comuneros”. Other places to visit and things to do include the goat and ostrich park, and extreme sports like paragliding, ziplining and buggies.
After this incredible visit, we will go back to Mesa de los Santos to get ready for the next destination: the colonial town of Giron. We will try delicious typical food from Santander on the way. This lovely historical town is just outside Bucaramanga. It has a beautiful architecture to admire while walking through its small streets, where you can get an idea of how life works in small towns of the region. A visit to Giron is a nice and relax time away from the busy life of Bucaramanga. The main square has a wonderful cathedral called Basílica Menor San Juan Bautista and nice cafes to drink a Colombian cup of coffee while watching the world going by. There are also some lovely shops where you can buy souvenirs as memories of your trip. After discovering this lovely town, we will take you back to our starting point in Bucaramanga.
Thank you for choosing us to experience Colombia, we hope to see you again in the near future.
