El Peñol and Guatape tour

Guatape tour Medellin Colombia

Conquer Colombia's tallest rock and master the Blue dragon

The first thing you should know about this tour is that you will get to know one of the most beautiful and photogenic places not only in Colombia, but in the whole world.

Guatapé and El Peñol is an experience that has it all: a spring-like climate, a unique colonial architecture, a large reservoir of emerald waters, an imposing monolith 220 meters high and the most amazing panoramic views, recognized worldwide for its incomparable beauty.

Upon entering the town you will discover a great feast of color that the people of this place have prepared for your eyes. Where the cobblestone and narrow streets have been adorned with an endless number of multicolored houses that seem to compete to exhibit the most original and attractive baseboard.

Venture to conquer the stone "El Peñol" with its 742 steps. We anticipate that it will be a demanding climb, but we guarantee that when you get to the top, you will receive the best reward, a majestic 360º view that will dazzle you with its beauty.

Afterwards, a relaxing stroll along the "Malecón" (boardwalk) will help you lower your heart rate and temperature. But if you really want to immerse yourself in the legend of the Blue Dragon, as this enigmatic place and its aquatic complex of islands are known, the best way is to do it aboard one of the dozens of boats available at the port.

We believe that a great destination deserves to have the best experience, so you can make the most of every second of your stay. That's why at Hansa Tours we have selected the best professionals to guide you. Are you ready? So are we! Contact us and start the adventure of a lifetime.

By the end of the week, I felt I'd made a new friend and was leaving a city I had fallen in love with. If and when we get to go back, I'll be asking Daniel to take us to more sites and share more of his favorite places with us. I can't adequately express how much his time and dedication to our trip meant to me. Absolutely wonderful tour guide.
