Acatenango Volcano – Overnight group tour

Acatenango volcano, La Antigua Guatemala

Overnight Acatenango volcano hike – two day tour.

Hike up the Acatenango volcano and camp on top. This overnight camping trip takes you on a challenging hiking trip on this 4000 meter high volcano. The tour starts with a hotel pick-up in Antigua between 9 and 9:30 am. You take a minibus to the village of La Soledad where you will meet the guides that will accompany you on the tour. The hike is tough, so we only recommend this tour if you are physically fit. However the reward will be the amazing views and if you are lucky you get to see the neighboring Fuego volcano erupt! When you get to the base camp (3500 m) the guides will set up the tents and you will eat dinner.

The following morning at 4 am you will climb to the top for a beautiful sunset (weather permitting). After a quick breakfast you will hike down where the bus will be waiting to bring you back to Antigua (central park drop-off). You will be back around noon.

Even though basic meals are included in this trip, we recommend you take extra snacks for energy on the hike up. Because of the very high altitude of this volcano you will also  need to bring good warm clothes and comfortable shoes. Contact us if you need more information about this tour before booking.
