Take a hike! There are numerous trails around and within Bogota for you to enjoy.
Believe it or not, despite the altitude, Bogotanos enjoy the outdoors and going for a run. Sign up for the half marathon!
A favorite for many Bogotanos is the Endulce Tu Pasion chain for desserts. Take the car out and try from dozens of Colombian postres.
The seat and source of the El Dorado myth, how about a short jaunt out to Guatavita to soak up a pre columbian atmosphere in the highlands?
To the South of Bogota is the Chicaque National Park. Excellent trails, views and ideal for birdwatching.
Yes, we cannot mention enough Bogota's ciclovia on a Sunday and Bank Holidays. A fantastic way to get to know the city.
Ever wanted to experience nature firsthand in the highlands? then head to Chingaza National Park, but be sure to dress warm, it gets pretty chilly up here.
And for those who do not wish to leave the city, you can find open spaces for reflection in the Parque Simon Bolivar.
And so close to Bogota is the town of La Calera, known for sweeping views of the city, idyllic countryside vistas and of course great food!
Head out to see the world famous Salt Cathedral in Zipaquira.
