Excursions and day trips from Medellín

Whether you are looking for day trips from Medellin or a weekend getaway, there are plenty of options to choose from. You can get a taste of the Paisa countryside and explore smaller towns. Getting around is easy thanks to the city's public transportation system.

Located an hour and a half from Medellin, Santa Fe de Antioquia is an historic town with cobblestone streets and colonial architecture. A cable car takes visitors into the city's inner city.

Another popular day trip from Medellin is to the small town of Guatape. This colorful town is surrounded by mountains and lakes, and has a zocalo painted with colorful murals. It is also home to the iconic Piedra del Penol.


The Ruta cerro is a pre-Hispanic path that passes through Commune 8 of Medellin. It combines archaeological finds with cloud forests. The path connects rural and urban areas and features ancestor stories.

The best way to explore the area is to take a tour. This is the most popular way to spend your day. The tour takes you to the key locations of the park, and it also includes a traditional lunch.


For longer trips, you can hire a private driver to take you up the hillside. Alternatively, you can use the city's metro system to explore the surrounding area. You can also hike in Arvi Park. The park is open Tuesday to Sunday. It is located in the Andean mountains, and is easily accessible by the cable-car network.

Do I have to give my guide a tip?
No. It is not required and not expected of you to tip your guide. However, if one is presented, the guide might accept a gratuity. To guarantee that they are fairly compensated for their time, each guide sets the price of their tours. They do not depend on gratuities from tours as a result. If you want to support your guide, write a review of your tour.
What happens once I make a reservation?
After making the payment, you should wait at least 24 hours prior to the travel date for your Local Expert to confirm the requested date. If your reservation is approved, a confirmation email will be sent to your registered email address with the reservation's specifics and the Local Expert's direct contact information.
Is it possible to py in cash?
We have a policy that states that a reservation can only be verified after a legitimate payment has been made on our website. The process aids in preventing disputes that could occur while paying in cash in person. You can be confident that this money won't be given to the Local Expert right away. After your tour is over, Excursopedia will hold it and then provide it to the Local Guide.
How can I find out if a reservation has been confirmed?
When you finish making your online payment and the Local Guide accepts your booking request, your reservation will be finalized. You will receive a confirmation email. Don't worry; if the Local Guide does not confirm your booking after you provide your credit card information, the transaction will not be completed.

Our Wine and Tapas trip's host, Sebastian, is a friendly and entertaining guy. He is an excellent local who knows where to find the best tapas or pinchos (this time).

Margo was incredibly kind and well informed about Madrid's past. On our first day in Madrid, Margo made us feel incredibly at ease and welcomed, she provided us some helpful advice on where to shop and go to get a local experience.
