Soar over the treetops in a cable car as you make your way to Parque Arvi, a hillside nature reserve looking out over Medellin. This pristine area offers you a chance to appreciate colorful butterflies and wildflowers while walking along one of many hiking paths. Make the 1.5-hour trek to the park's lagoon, or stop for a picnic on the banks of a bubbling creek. You can join a guided tour to gain access to otherwise restricted areas of the park, although your guide will likely only speak Spanish. Plan a Medellin trip in moments using our itinerary builder.

  • Love it, the metro cable is great, safe and clean. It is a long ride to the top of the mountain but it is worth it. You will have to pay extra ($10.000 cop each way) to get in the second gondola that will take you to the park. In addition you can take a bus to Santa Helena but those buses take some time to leave, I believe that there is one every 30 minutes. I hope you like my picture.... Inst: jmm_pics.
  • The place for numerous activities. My best description would be Arvy Park is like Disney World, huge area with different attractions and parks, however in this park everything is natural and you do not have to make lines and there is very inexpensive. I enjoyed the canopy in Confama's park and the hiking trails, orchids' dome and the gondolas to access the park where the free shuttle bus take you to each park. Bring your light jacket or wind breaker since it is in the top of the mountains
