Full description
Benefit from pick-up at your hotel and travel by private vehicle to the small village of Santa Elena, located less than 1 hour from Medellin, 2,000 meters above sea level in the majestic mountains of Antioquia.

Encounter a great variety of traditional flower farms where the peasant farmers maintain the same family traditions that have been practiced over many decades. Hear about their work they do and the floral displays they arrange for the annual Feria de Flores (Flower Festival), considered one of the most important cultural and social events in Medellin.

Visit an organic flower farm to meet an authentic silletero (flower vendor) and learn about their life growing flowers in small plots in the mountains that they then sell in the markets of Medellin.
