Full description
Volcano Acatenango is the sleeping giant, and a twin of the most active volcano in Guatemala. Acatenango is the third highest volcano in all of Central America and it is a real adventure to hike to the top. It gives you the best location to observe the sunset and the sunrise. Sleeping overnight in the base camp of the volcano will be unique experience. Its highest summit is 3,976m (13,044 ft). The itinerary of the trip is broken into two days. Day 1 will begin at 9:00 AM, with a shuttle from Antigua to La Soledad village. The tour guide will pick you up at your hotel. Your hike will begin at 11:00 AM and will continue for approximately 5 hours. You will reach base camp by 17:00 PM in time to watch the sunset. The second day will begin at 4:00 AM, as an hour's hike to the summit will provide a great view of the sunrise. Breakfast will be served back at base camp and the trek will start around 8:30 AM downwards toward the village. Reaching the village by 11:30 AM, you will have some time to look around before the transfer to Antigua. The tour finishes here by 12:30 PM, giving you the rest of your day.

This was an amazing experience, the tour team was very very helpful and they want to make sure you make it to the top. They will help you with yours bags at a cost but they are flexible with the payment. My mother was able to complete the hike to the top thanks to this option. The guys do not push you to go quick, they actually encourage you to take your time and they will wait for you and always with a smile. They will wait for you even if you are feeling like crap, I am very happy with the team. They do offer food and the cooking at the top is an experience on its own, they are up all night making sure everyone is feeling well due to altitude sickness. I will do this again, because the experience is unique, and I will do it with this tour group.

It was great experience. Guides were very helpful and kind, always trying to help. We were a little afraid about food quantity but it was really tasty and more than enough for hiking! Although it is great experience it was the hardest hike I have ever done, totally recommended but only for people in at least average shape (due to the volcano, not the tour operator!)

Wir können die Tour wärmstens empfehlen! Unser Guide hatte so eine Leidenschaft fürs wandern, welche er uns so unglaublich nahe gebracht hat. Der Aufstieg ist für Geübte gut machbar. Wir wurden pünktlich abgeholt und konnten unser restliches Gepäck bei unserem Guide unterstellen bis zur Rückkehr. Es war für Essen/Trinken gesorgt. Unser Schlafplatz war mit direktem Blick auf Fuego. Abends gab es ein Lagerfeuer, bei dem wir alle gemütlich zusammen saßen. Morgens ging’s dann gegen 04:45 Uhr hoch zur letzten Etappe. Ich würde die Wanderungen wirklich jedem empfehlen, es hat so unendlich viel Spaß gemacht und einen aktiven Vulkan sieht man auch nicht alle Tage.
