Join our spectacular overnight trek up the mighty Volcán Acatenango. We will pick you up in our private transport from your accommodation in Antigua Guatemala and drive to the village of San José Calderas, where you will start your day off with some fresh, locally grown coffee and a traditional Guatemalan breakfast at the home of your guide, Elvin Soy. The hike itself takes approx 4-5 hours and is challenging, but our experienced local guides will set a pace that you are comfortable with ensuring to take lots of breaks ensuring plenty of time for pictures! You will camp at our private basecamp which is already constructed at 3600m (11,800 ft) complete with padded mattresses and warm sleeping bags. All you need to carry is your water and some snacks for the hike. All your meals are included. Then all there is left to do is sit back around the campfire with a hot drink and watch Volcán Fuego erupt in the background! In the morning, we will wake up early and hike the last 280m to the summit of Acatenago and watch the sunrise. We will then hike back down to basecamp, and after a delicious cooked breakfast, we will descend the volcano and take private transport back to Antigua.
