Have you already enjoyed this experience?

Only an hour and a half drive away from Medellin, Guatapé y El Peñol are the most loved and visited places of Antioquia. El Peñol rock, a natural wonder, is a monolith 2,135 meters above sea-level and is the third largest stone in the world that attracts people from all over the world!

We will take our first stop in the old town of El Peñol, a replica of a typical Colombian village that was completely flooded in the late 1970s. After visiting this interesting site, it is time to climb the famous El Peñol rock.  Walking up the almost 700 steps of the El Peñol rock, you will be enjoying the best panoramic view of Guatapé Lake and this stunning region. It would be totally worth it!. The final destination will be Guatapé, Colombia’s most colourful town. You can enjoy a traditional lunch, explore this beautiful colonial village and walk around the colourful streets and traditional houses.

All of our tours are private bilingual tours that include a professional local guide who will pick you up and drop you off at your hotel. We also make sure you will have enough free time to buy souvenirs, grab a snack or take breathtaking pictures.

Note: Don’t forget to take cash with you in case you want to buy goods or beverage that is not included because some shops or local restaurants may not accept credit cards.
