What you'll do

El Salado is a hiking place outside the city, nearby Envigado, where you can see one of the most amazing waterfalls in Medellín. Get immersed into a beautiful forest full of biodiversity and life, get purified by the clear water´s freshness and sound while you try to see all the different kind of birds that are flying around and singing! Explore the mountains of Medellín guided by a knowledgeable local and see the city from another angle. If you want, you can take a bath on these cold but relaxing waterfalls and get massaged by the water stream while you get a natural skin rejuvenation treatment from the water´s qualities. This is a challenge for those adventurers that are not afraid of falling in love with the unique natural richness that we have here in Colombia. The main idea at the end is getting conscious about how beautiful nature is, how important water is and how amazing it feels to be in a place where there´s the feeling that everything is alive and connected, then, we start loving more our planet. Finally, this is a good hiking session to prepare for the wild night life! Haha

Santiago

I was born and raised in Medellín. I speak English and Spanish. I have worked as personal assistant for important business people that come to the city. I´ve been practicing mountain bike and hiking for 8 years, having the chance of exploring multiple areas full of beautiful nature, biodiversity and amazing views! My communication skills allow me to provide an experience full of local knowledge and the authentic face of Medellín. I´m very passionate about our city and a very proud colombian that wants to contribute with the goal of telling the world the amazing country that Colombia is! If you come on a tour with me, consider it as a chance to learn Spanish, visit places that are uniquely local and some others that just a few people know!

What's included

Food
Colombian typical energy snack! Made of organic guava!

Where you'll be

We will meet at the Poblado´s metro station and learn about our amazing massive transportation system (which is probably one of the cleanest in the world), we will see different parts of the city in the southern side. We will ride a bus to go to the hiking place going across Envigado. We will hike until we reach the first waterfall that is around 164 ft (50 m) going across beautiful paths, streams and natural pools.
