On this amazing tour, you will visit the Guatape dam and enjoy a boat ride through the hundreds of islands that were created when the valley was flooded, giving this place a very special character.

As an option, you will climb the stairway of the imposing Peñol rock and see from 220m high a spectacular view of the area!

Then, you will make a stop at Guatapé, the "fenix" village of Antioquia that was started from scratch after the original was flooded to give place to the massive water reservoir. Here you will walk the picturesque streets of "calle del recuerdo" which portrays the features of the original village, and you will see the variety of colorful plinths present in almost every house of the village.

After enjoying a delicious lunch with all the typical ingredients of the region, you will return to tour hotel in Medellín.
