Cerro Bravo hiking adventure, departing from Medellín Details
If you’re visiting Medellín and would like to go on a full-day hiking tour, look no further than booking our tour to Cerro Bravo Hike. This is one of our toughest hikes of the Colombian Andes mountains that take place not too far from Medellín. After arrival at the base of the hill, the hike usually takes from 9 am till around 1 or 2 pm. However, the breathtaking views along the way and at the peak of Cerro Bravo will make the effort totally worth it.
With pick-up at 6:30 am at your hotel in Medellín and after a 1.5-hour drive southwest, we will arrive in the town of Fredonia where we will have a traditional breakfast and some great coffee right before getting ready for our climb.
The starting point is just under ten minutes away by car where after some stretching, we will begin our hike of this majestic mountain which was an active volcano around six hundred thousand years ago.
After leaving behind a couple of cattle ranches, our hike will take us through an 800-year-old indigenous trail into a cloud forest embellished by endemic species of flora and fauna and crystal-clear water sources that descend from the mountain.
Upon reaching the summit, weather permitting, we will enjoy a privileged view from the highest peak of the region’s landscape. The highlights of this jaw-dropping vista are the amazing natural pyramid of Cerro Tusa and the small town of Venice on one side and on the opposite side, the town of Fredonia, and the meanders of the Cauca river with citrus orchards in the lowest parts of the valley and coffee plantations in the highest.
Lunch, which will also take place while at the top of the mountain will include traditional paisa food wrapped in a plantain leaf followed by fresh Colombian coffee.
After a brief yet well-deserved rest, we will start our descent along the same path until we reach the starting point, get back to the car and return to Medellín.
Your fluent English-speaking guide will share his interesting insight about the surrounding forest and local culture, will gladly adjust the speed and intensity of the activity according to your personal condition, and will provide the necessary safety and risk control recommendations.
