Full description

Meet at Park Poblado early in the morning and take a bus tour of the valley to the picturesque colonial town of Guatape. Stop at the famous Penol Rock along the way and climb up 740 steps for the most incredible views.

Visit the town of Guatape, where your tour guide will explain the history behind this vibrantly colorful town. Have a traditional lunch in the historic town before embarking on your own personal speedboat for a brief tour of the lake.

Set up camp at your fabulous glamping location on the lake and your guide will explain what adventures await. Go hiking atop Paradise Mountain for breathtaking views of the sunset before enjoying a delicious dinner.

Then after an amazing night falling asleep to the sounds of nature, wake up fresh and early the next for some of the best coffee in the world. Then, take the kayak out to the waterfall, try some wakeboarding in the smooth water of the morning, or just relax at the glamping site.

We loved our experience with Top 10! The day trip to Guatape was amazing. Our guides were knowledgable and we felt like we had good use of our time there. The glamping was AMAZING. We felt very looked after, the views were spectacular and everything about the Finca was perfect. Couldn’t recommend it enough!

It was a perfectly organized tour. We enjoyed the time. Especially our host at glamping Andrea was very cool, nice and took part and a short hike to the highest point in the area. I recommend the Guatapé tour combined with glamping to anyone looking for some peace and quiet during Medellin parties. Food and nature… perfect! The tents are spacious. Only the beds are a bit small for taller people. Thank you and gladly again.

First, the bilingual guided tour to Guatape was excellent with our guide Sandy. The drive to Guatape is charming, the climb up Penol is so worth it, the lunch with the group and the tour is two thumbs up! Second, the lakeside glamping was priceless - above and beyond expectations. You're not just glamping near the water, you're glamping on the water! The hosts were thoughtful and hospitable from the speedboat journey to the tent amenities to the home cooked meals. At every turn the space is beautiful and tranquil. We are SO grateful to Andrea for making this experience one of the best trips we had during our two weeks in Colombia!! Tips: There are actually two separate vendors for each experience in this bundle. Be prepared to spend a repeated afternoon in Guatape with the guided tour group after the overnight glamping experience. Make sure you have some cash on hand for this journey. We returned to Medellin at 6pm the next day. Plan accordingly!
