With sturdy hiking shoes and adventurous spirits, we’ll embark on a moderate trail, winding through diverse forests shaped by past wildfires. Along the way, catch glimpses of Volcán Agua and the mesmerizingly active Volcán Fuego, towering over the Antigua valley.

Our campsite, nestled below the tree line, offers panoramic views of the valley and Volcán Fuego. After setting up camp, unwind and soak in the stunning surroundings. Our knowledgeable guide will prepare a hearty camp dinner with hot drinks, providing the perfect opportunity to savor the tranquility of the wilderness.

Day 2: Summiting Acatenango

Rise with the sun! After a hearty camp breakfast, we embark on a challenging ascent to the summit. The trail is steep, adorned with sand, gravel, and alpine vegetation. As we conquer the summit, panoramic views of the Guatemalan highlands await, stretching all the way to the Mexican border.

After relishing the summit experience, we begin our descent, followed by another thrilling 4X4 adventure back to Antigua. Arriving around mid-day, you’ll have ample time to explore the charms of this colonial capital.
