Named after the Arvi bird that resides in the area, this natural park just outside of Medellin is a hidden secret that you can’t miss. Take this private tour during the weekends and get away from the concrete jungle to enjoy the beauty of this fascinating reserve on the Medellin outskirts. The great variety of fauna and flora will captivate your senses as you walk around precious sceneries getting close to nature wildlife. Discover a wide selection of birds, flowers, and trees that you haven´t even Heard of.

Your bilingual guide will collect you at 9 am on a private vehicle at your hotel or any other location you suggest for pick up (as long as it is central), time is flexible. Tour heads east towards Santa Elena for about 45 minutes by car, and you are free to also take the cable car instead if you wish to contemplate the spectacular city views as you leave the slums and enter the rural area. Your guide will be waiting for you right at the final station of the cable car in case you decide to actually take the cable car to get to Arvi. There are guided tours every hour so there is a big chance you make it right on time for the next guided tour. There are bathrooms and cafeterias in the area, just make sure and bring Colombian pesos since not all stores take credit cards.

Tour involves a walk around the ecological pads, passing through lush sceneries that pleasantly invite you to get deeper in the forest. Learn the unsurpassed properties of local plants and trees as you are guided through one of the greenest parks in South America. Enjoy the fresh air around this magnificent reserve and capture unique moments with your cameras because the wildlife you will see here you probably will not see again in your life.

After a couple hours appreciating the beauty of Mother Nature, tour gets ready to head back to civilization. Just like arrival, you are free to take the cable car all the way down to the Medellin valley or drive along with your private guide in case you wish to make a custom stop for photos, restrooms, or lunch (at your expense).
