Parque Arvi, Santa Elena

4.3
#1 of 46 in Outdoors in Antioquia Department
Soar over the treetops in a cable car as you make your way to Parque Arvi, a hillside nature reserve looking out over Medellin. This pristine area offers you a chance to appreciate colorful butterflies and wildflowers while walking along one of many hiking paths. Make the 1.5-hour trek to the park's lagoon, or stop for a picnic on the banks of a bubbling creek. You can join a guided tour to gain access to otherwise restricted areas of the park, although your guide will likely only speak Spanish.

    Pure air, rivers, birds, diversity. We love, we arrived at about 10 am, we walked a lot, is recommended very comfortable shoes, sunscreen and something to be protected from cold.

    This is a nice trip to do on your own, when you have a few hours to spare. Good way to see some of Medellin, and get out into the country side to see some native fauna.  more »
