Description

This full day tour which takes place east of Medellín, and takes you through the coziest and most representative villages in Antioquia: El Peñol and Guatape.

After 1.5-hour driving along natural scenarios with your professional guide you will arrive at El Peñol to discover the fascinating story of the town that sits today on the middle of the lake. The closest to heaven will be next when you walk up the almost 700 steps of the El Peñol rock which offers picturesque views of the region. As a final destination, there is Zócalo town or Guatapé, both great places to enjoy lunch at your own expense and take a pleasant walk around this vibrant village and relax around the soothing lake.

Your professional guide will meet with you at your hotel and then embark on a personalized tour by an air conditioned car.

Tour goes on to El Peñol, a village that was relocated during the past century in order to create this spectacular human made lake called Guatapé. This quick stop will show you a replica of the old Peñol village before its relocation. The massive lake becomes more visible as you get closer to El Peñol rock, a gigantic volcanic eruption considered one of the world´s top ten wildest stairways and the views are quite worth it!

Finally, at Guatapé (Zocalo village), it will be the ideal place to enjoy lunch at your own expense while sharing outstanding views of the lake. There are cafeterias and restaurants and we suggest bringing cash since not all shops take cards.

At the end of the day, tour heads back to Medellín passing along beautiful towns around the region. Perfect way to contemplate amazing scenarios of Antioquia and take a closer look to local customs and traditions. Stops can be made at your discretion to take photos, get souvenirs or try local snacks.

It has already been a pleasure to show you the most fascinating scenarios and traditions of the Paisa culture and our team definitely looks forward to welcoming your family and friends in the near future.
