One of the best volcano hikes in Guatemala, through corn fields and montane forests, arriving at the summit for sweeping views of Xela, the volcanic line of Guatemala, and the active Santiaguito volcano crater. Back in Xela by lunchtime.
Join us for a 2-day hike up Volcán Tajumulco, which stands as the highest point in Central America at 4222m. Camp just short of the summit at 4000m and then climb the last 222m before sunrise on the second day.
Hike Volcán Santa María, the striking 3772m stratovolcano that towers over Xela, sleep at the summit, and wake up for the sunrise over Guatemala's volcanic range, hopefully seeing an eruption or two from Santiaguito crater.
Join us for this one-of-a-kind trek through the Western Highlands! 6-days of varying landscapes, three Mayan language zones, and homestays with local families. The final day, climb to the highest non-volcanic point in Central America before arriving in the remote mountain town of Todos Santos. A trek steeped in history.
The best way to get from Xela to Lago Atitlán--sure beats a chicken bus! Hike two days through corn fields, mountain forests, and villages to watch sunrise over the lake and volcanoes on the third morning.
