We will set off from your hotel-hostel at 5:30am in a comfy SUV, then we head to San Antonio de Pardo which is a Medellin countryside district 40 min away. Our destination is a private farm which has been named as one of the city lungs by the city council due to his fenomenal green corridor.

When we get there we will have a delicious brekky made by locals with organic ingredients from the region. Followed by this, at 7:15am we will start our way to the cow's paddock to interact with this extraordinary animals and learn about the milking process with the locals responsible guidance.

Finishing this activity, we head back to the farm to have some coffee and hang around the farm while i get the horses ready.
You will get an introduction about some necessary principles you need to know before riding a horse. As soon everything is done we start our ride to the mountain at 9:30am; we will pass by numerous pine tress where you can see different types of birds and the wonderful landscape before we reach the peak. (This can be swap for trekking if you prefer)

We will set up a picnic area where we can have a unique local dish, while our horses rest and we admire the view with Medellin in the background. Then we ride the horses back to the farm, rest a bit with a cup of coffee and head back to your hotel-hostel (Midday).

Hello everyone, let me introduce myself. I am a business administration by profession and traveler - animal lover by passion. I have been traveling the world 6 years ago where i've visited many different countries and finally got back again to my home town, our beautiful Medellin, the place that i've always dreamed to share with others when i was overseas.

I grew up surrounded by animals in my grandparents dairy farm (the experience location) in the countryside of Medellin. In this place is where my animal passion started and where i got all my knowledge about how to treat them well and responsibly.

More than your host, i will be someone who shares knowledge and live the experience along with you; having a good time as we love to do in our culture.

See you soon!!

What an amazing experience i had with Juan! This kind of culture connections were what i was chasing since i arrived to Colombia. You really get inside and learn about local traditions, the milking was sooo much fun and the horse riding was amazing with those views. Juan and the people who lives in the farm are sooo nice and polite. They will make sure you feel like HOME, and full lol (btw the fruit bowl he gives you in the horse riding is yummy) Overall experience was just wonderful, you have fun, you learn about Colombia, you eat great food and you give a time for yourself to take clean breath and scape from the city lights. 200% recommended!!!!

100% recommended I was a bit skeptical at first because of the number of reviews the experience had, but it was so much fun and relaxing. Juan Jose is wonderful, welcoming and super friendly. He picked me up at my apartment and then headed to the finca. At the finca, we milked some cows, ate a delicious breakfast, and then went horseback riding. As if that wasn't enough, I got to see a cow give birth!!!The views, the weather, the fresh air, everything was perfect. At the end, Juan Jose took me back to my apartment. Please do yourself a favor and book this experience. I promise you won’t regret it.

Omg, i had sooo much fuuuun! At the beginning as usual you are very unsure what to expect with this experiences but this guy take this to another level. First of all he picked me up in my hotel in a very comfortable car, having a good chat and getting beautiful views while we get there. As soon as you get there everything was just amazing from the food, local people, animals care and the spectacular place overall! He is a very polite person and he will make sure you feel like home. If you are seeking for a country side experience with a deep connection with Colombian culture, this is for you! Thanks Juan Jose for everything
