Immerse yourself in the wild nature that surrounds the Melcocho River on this excursion from Medellín. You will enjoy a day trekking in a unique environment and bathe in the "Magic River".
Río Mágico Trekking Tour
We will pick you up from your hotel in Medellín at 6:30 a.m. and board a 4x4, heading to Cocorná, in the department of Antioquia. After two and a half hours of travel, we will arrive in the rural area, and take up the path that will lead us to the Melcocho River - the Río Mágico. Let the adventure begin!
Over the course of an hour, we will trek through the lush forest that surrounds this river named "Magic" by the locals. You'll discover the origin of the nickname during the route!
Throughout the entire route, we will cross streams, slopes and dirt roads. And every effort will be worth it when we see the crystal clear waters of the Melcocho River: a gem running through the Colombian jungle that exudes natural beauty at every turn.
The liana trees, stones that line the river and dappled shadow of the treetops make it a perfect setting for a dip. After a well-deserved bath in the Melcocho River, we will return to the starting point by trekking for another hour.
Back in the vehicle, we will return to Medellín, where we will arrive at 4:30 p.m.
If you would prefer, you can choose to ride a horse on the route, on the day of the tour.
