Day 1 – City Tour & Street-art

Your tour will begin with a Medellin city tour during which you will visit many of the city’s cultural and architectural highlights, including the Botero Park, where sculptures by Colombia’s most famous artist are on display, and the Lights Park, a unique series of light sculptures in a once no-go public space. An afternoon tour of Comuna 13 will give you the opportunity to meet with local community figures and learn about how the neighbourhood was brought back from the brink.

Day 2 – Guatape $ El Penol

On the way to the pretty little lakeside town of Guatape, you will stop at the surreal giant rock of El Penol – with 740 steps to reach the top, it’s an intense little climb, but worth it for the spectacular 360-degree views over the lakes and islands of the Guatape reservoir. It’s one of Colombia’s most famous viewpoints, and with good reason: you probably won’t get a better view in all of Colombia! In Guatape take a stroll through the colourful streets and plazas of one of Colombia’s prettiest towns.

Day 3 – Cable-car to Arvi Park

On your final morning you will ride the Medellin cable-car up over the mountains to Arvi Park, a lovely natural forest park to the east of the city. The views over the sprawling city from the cable-car are worth the ride alone, but Arvi Park is a real bonus! You will enjoy a guided forest hike along the pretty woodland trails, learning about the local ecosystems and spotting many species of Colombian orchids
