Day 2: Medellin City Tour

Day 3: El Penol / Guatape Day Trip

After breakfast, visit one of Colombia's most distinctive pueblos (Villages) to marvel at the stunning views from the top of the Rock of El Peñol, which makes this a must-visit tourist site. Enjoy colorful farmland in the proximity of El Peñol as a mouth-opener to the stunning views that you can see from the Rock. The climb up the 700+ stairs to the top of the 220-meter-high offers 360-degree breathtaking views of the surrounding areas. But if you are not into climbing stairs, you can spend extra time exploring the colorfully painted facades (zócalos) of houses in Guatapé and walking along the waterfront in town.

 Optional adventures at additional cost include a boat ride around the lake that takes you past vacation houses of famous and infamous Colombian celebrities. 

Day 4: Concordia Coffee Tour

For those interested in taking in the most breathtaking coffee scenery and learning about the specifics of the coffee process, from coffee berries to parchment coffee and from green coffee to roasted coffee beans, this Medelln Coffee plantation trip is for you.
 
The town of Concordia is a town in Colombia’s northwestern coffee region with an extraordinary landscape and is easily accessible from Medellín. The 2.5-hour drive through the Central Andes mountains to Concordia will take you on a scenic road to your first destination, a large coffee plantation with panoramic views of the surrounding farms, the magnificent Andes, and the Cauca River. 

This opportunity will take you to tour the farm and drive by thousands of coffee plants, buy freshly roasted export-quality coffee straight from the source, beans, or ground, and see the panoramic view that overlooks the entire valley and farm below. 
 
During the tour, you will learn all the steps involved in growing, harvesting, and processing a coffee bean and will see first-hand what it takes to transform ripe coffee cherries into the finest coffee in the world. This opportunity will give you a deeper perspective of why Colombian coffee competes with the best coffees in the world, such as Kona Coffee, Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee, and Kopi Luwak. Depending on the tour schedule, you may have lunch at a restaurant near the Cauca River or a traditional lunch at a nearby farm, either on the way back to Medellín or before visiting the farm.

Kate was great to work with in the planning stage. She was prompt, helpful, and efficient. Our tour guide, Edwin, was knowledgeable and passionate. We were very happy to have traveled with Adventure Life, it made the trip easy and a true pleasure. We could concentrate on enjoying the experience rather than the details of travel.
