What You Can Expect
With your guide, head over to the famous El Peñon rock, an enormous monolithic formation and the town's most-visited site. Using the 650-step staircase, climb to the top of this gigantic boulder, whose peak stands majestically at 7,000 feet (2,100 meters) above sea level. You hard work will pay off once you reach the top, where you’ll take in unbeatable views of the landscape below.
Relax at the summit and enjoy 360-degree views of the town, the lakes and the mountains. Then, take a break and enjoy a delicious Colombian lunch (own expense) at a local restaurant before heading to Guatapé Lake.
Take to the water and enjoy a relaxing boat trip on Guatapé Lake, one of the Colombia's largest lakes and home to a seemingly endless array of scattered islands. Take in spectacular views from the water before hopping back on the coach and driving back to your Medellín hotel.
Fantastic trip with an outstanding, English speaking guide who taught us a great deal. This set a high standard for the rest of your trips. Just one thing, when we returned to the hotel and read the itinerary, we should have had a boat trip included....
Excellent trip. Our driver/guide picked us up at our hotel at 9am, stopping along the way for a regional take on arepas (included). Then to the replica of the old El Penon town (before it was flooded) and a view of the lake. Next, up to La Piedra del Peñol and the rough, but rewarding, climb up. This was followed by our tour of the beautiful village of Guatape and an hour's boat ride before the drive back. Guide was excellent as well--personable and informative. Certainly a highlight of our Colombia trip.
