The Topocoro Lake is beautiful lake that was created because of the construction of the dam “Represa Hidrosogamoso”. It is relatively new and therefore not known by many tourists which makes it a wonderful place to enjoy the nature. You will get to know overflooded parts of the region that three years ago could not even be reached by car. And the best part: Due to the high water temperature of more than 30 °C/ 85 °F it is a perfect place to swim.
During the private boat ride you will enter parts of the Chicamocha Canyon where a waterfall will be visited and you will have the opportunity to jump off a cliff into the water. On the other side of the lake you will visit the Caracolí Waterfalls which are several small waterfalls with natural infinity pools.
- Private transport to the Topocoro Lake (approx. 1.5 hours from Bucaramanga; a group of 1 - 4 persons in a small-size SUV, a group of 5+ in a larger vehicle usually with a separate driver; if a group of 4 prefers a larger vehicle due to an excess of luggage, they will have to pay the price per person that a group of 3 pays per person)
- Visits of the Chicamocha Canyon, several waterfalls and natural swimming spots
- Private motorboat ride (max. 2.5 hours including the visits of the waterfalls)
- Life jacket (for non-swimmers)
- English-, Spanish- and/ or German-speaking accompaniment
- Optional for an additional cost: activities such as wakeboarding, jet ski or additional hours with the boat
- Travel insurance and additional insurance for extreme sports (going out on a boat already counts as an extreme sport and is often not covered by the international insurance of the traveler)
