Day 3

For the May Tour
We will head out to the city’s metro system where we will ride the Metro and Metrocable (gondola) to see the most spectacular views of Medellin. The rest of the day includes a hike at Arvi Park and a visit to a local flower farm where silleteros make their special silletas for the annual Flower festival.

For the August Tour
We are headed to the Flowers Festival! The city of Medellin’s annual flower festival, known as the Feria de Las Flores, has helped it establish a reputation as the cultural capital of Colombia. Spanning 10 days in August, the festival is one of the city’s most famous events. It’s difficult to find a time when Medellin’s nickname — the “city of eternal spring” — is more appropriate. We will get to see the silleteros in all their colors parade on a exclusive balcony (or Palco) with chair and drinks so you can celebrate and take the best pictures possible.

For the December Tour
We will head out to the city’s metro system where we will ride the Metro and Metrocable (gondola) to see the most spectacular views of Medellin. Then a hike at Arvi Park. We will head back to the Hotel in the early afternoon for a rest, then an early Dinner, as the evening will be filled with a 3-hour tour of the famous Medellin Christmas lights.

Day 4

After breakfast we will drive to the municipality of Guatapé to visit El Peñón de Guatapé, an ancient monolithic formation. After hiking up the 740 stairs of the giant rock, a lunch of freshly-caught fish from a local lake will be served. The day will finish with a boat tour of the lake. The entrance fee and a bottle of water for the hike are included in your package.
