Overview

THE EXPEDITION OF A LIFETIME

The source of the Medellín River or Aburrá River is located in the south of the Aburrá Valley in “Alto de San Miguel”, municipality of Caldas. With natural secondary forests, this place is rich in biodiversity and very strategic for the conservation of flora and fauna.

This easy hike is made for the people looking for natural escape, far from the crowd of the city. During this experience, you will be able to connect with mother nature, practice some yoga, and take a swim in this ancestral river.

The fitness level required for this hike is 2 out of 5, as we use some ropes to go down to the waterfall. The hike is really short though.

$ Prices are degressive according to the number of persons.
