Description

This tour will take you to one of Colombia’s must-see attractions: the massive rock La Piedra de Guatapé, also known as El Peñol or simply La Piedra (The Stone). Merely a one-and-a-half hour drive east of Medellín, the rock is located right next to the Peñol-Guatapé Dam, near the border of the towns Guatapé and El Peñol. You’ll be breathless after climbing up the 649 stairs – not only because of the hike but also the astonishing view!

As soon as you arrive, you can start the hike up to the top of La Piedra, where you’ll have time to relax and marvel at the panoramic view over the beautiful lake and its magnificent surroundings. On the small platform, you will also be able to buy a snack and a cold beverage as well as little souvenirs from the local vendors.
Back at the bottom, you’ll have a closer look at the environment and capture its beauty from different perspectives. You will also get to hear the story about the letters G and U imprinted on the north side of the rock, telling us about two cities claiming El Peñol as their own.

The next part of our tour includes visiting the gorgeous colorful town of Guatapé. Walking down the cobblestone streets of the laid-back village you’ll admire the decorative panels at the base of the houses. In Guatapé you’ll also get a delicious meal in one of the nicest traditional restaurants with the best local ingredients.

After a good hike, and a walk through the town of Guatapé, you’ll return back to Medellín.

We had an amazing day with Diana & Diego on our Guatapé tour with lots of laughter, Colombian music and food, discoveries and learned a lot. 5* more than deserved!

An authentic and gracious tour of Colombia
★★★★★

Impulse Travel put together a wonderful, 10-day trip for us, providing a great introduction to the country’s geography, culture, and ongoing social transition. I can’t say enough about Impulse’s guides, whose personalities really made our trip. They took us to their favorite cafes, hiked with us, bought us exotic fruits to try, and quickly picked up on our interests. While add-on excursions can sometimes feel canned, Impulse’s special activities did not – our coffee-plantation tour, bike riding on Bogota’s traffic-free main streets on Sunday, and visiting with Colombian musicians included spontaneous moments and authentic conversation. Hotel choices were excellent, and travel logistics were seamless (several domestic flights via Avianca, airport pickups, and drivers). Thanks for the work you did, Felipe. We’d love to go back to Colombia, and we’ll turn to Impulse Travel again when we do.

Impulse: Crafting Unforgettable Colombian Memories
★★★★★

Our trip exceeded all expectations and Impulse and in particular Felipe Cadena was instrumental in making this a memory and trip of a lifetime. Felipe listened to our travel plans, understood the family we have (children aged 8 to 17) and the type of holiday we were hoping to have. He proposed, chopped and changed the plans to suit us and work around us. Colombia was an amazing place and Impulse took us to some great places that we will never forget [...] Thank you for contributing to our wonderful memories of a fantastic Country with great people, trip of a lifetime. I cannot recommend Impulse enough in making all this happen and taking the hassle 'off my desk !'
