Guatemala is home to 37 volcanoes that form the majestic highlands. This hike will take you to the top of the impressive 8,371 foot Pacaya Volcano for an up-close look.


Upon arrival at Pacaya National Park, you'll meet your certified guide and naturalist that will accompany you. Your two-hour hiking adventure will take you through forested areas to gorgeous meadows that give way to colorful volcanic sand and rock. The sulfur in the air is a sign that you're getting close to the volcano.


As you reach the upper platform, you'll be rewarded with awe-inspiring panoramic vistas that surround you, as you take a break to enjoy a beverage and snack. The hike down is less strenuous and should only take about an hour.


Need to Know:

Note: Participants must be at least 12 years of age, in excellent physical condition and weigh no more than 250 lbs. Volcano hiking is on uneven, narrow paths with inclines and declines. Wear hiking clothes and closed-toe shoes, sunscreen, bring insect repellent, sunglasses and a hat or cap.
