From Antigua: 2-Day Acatenango Volcano Trek with Eruptions

From Antigua: 2-Day Acatenango Volcano Trek with Eruptions

Embark on a journey to the Acatenango Volcano, renowned for its breathtaking view of the constantly erupting Fuego Volcano. This two-day, overnight hiking tour is an encounter with one of nature's most stunning spectacles. The hike requires a good level of fitness, agility, and intermediate hiking skills, as the path is notably steep. Please be aware that the only additional cost is the mandatory park entry fee not included in the package, all tour operators manage it this way. Our competitive advantage lies in our exceptional team of thoroughly vetted professional guides, who ensure group cohesion, boost morale, and consistently receive outstanding reviews. Day 1: Our adventure begins at the center of Antigua at 8:30 AM, where we'll board shuttles to the volcano base, approximately 1 hour away. Upon arrival, you'll meet our local bilingual guide, handle the 100 Q (12 USD) entrance fee, check your equipment, complete a quick registration, and then start the ascent. The hike to the campsite, where we'll spend the night, takes about 5-6 hours, depending on the group's pace. We'll provide lunch during the hike, and there will be three bathroom breaks (please bring your own toilet paper). At camp, enjoy a mesmerizing view of the erupting Fuego Volcano at night, a bonfire, hot chocolate, shot of whisky, and dinner—all included. Accommodations are in a shared dormitory with individual sleeping bags. For added comfort, we suggest bringing a small pillow! Note that the sleeping bags are already at the campsite. Day 2: We'll rise at 4 AM for a 1.5-hour hike to experience a stunning sunrise against the backdrop of the erupting volcano. After taking in the view and capturing photos, we return to the camp for breakfast and then begin our descent to the base. We expect to arrive back in Antigua's center by 1 PM. NOTE: Dress warmly and bring sunglasses, extra socks, suitable hiking shoes, trekking gear, sunscreen, toiletries, a flashlight, a pillow, snacks, water, a simple raincoat, and a waterproof bag. While you can rent or buy these items before we start hiking, being prepared is more cost-effective. Hiking sticks are available for rent on site. There are no porters. As this is a shared tour, the group will hike together at a consistent pace. Your cooperation is important to ensure everyone enjoys a great experience. DISCLAIMER: On Day 1 at camp, local caretakers of the park offer an independent 3-4 hour trek to the erupting Fuego Volcano for 200Q each. Please note that this trek is not included in our itinerary or booking cost, nor is it part of our operations or under our responsibility. We bring this to your attention now because you are likely to hear about it during the activity. We wish to courteously acknowledge the efforts of the park caretakers. However, choosing to participate means you agree to temporarily leave the group and our supervision.

Cobblestone streets wind through the city of majestic churches and monasteries. After pickup in Guatemala City, transfer to Antigua Guatemala to meet your local guide and begin your gentle 3-hour walking tour. Visit the Jade Factory and Museum to admire ancient Guatemalan carving traditions. Continue to the ruins of El Carmen church and browse for souvenirs at the craft market beside the ruined building. You will see La Merced Church of Guatemalan, which features an ultra-baroque style, as well as two bell towers. On the facade of the church in its upper part is a sculpture of San Pedro Nolasco, founder of the Mercedarian Order. You will also see Santa Catalina Arch, built to connect the nuns between cloisters to avoid being seen. After the earthquakes of 1773, the arch became important due to the alterations that were made. These alterations included the construction of a turret and the inclusion of a Lamy Amp Lacroix clock of French origin. You will then see Central Park, which is situated in the traditional grid pattern used frequently in urban planning in the Spanish colonies. The park is surrounded by the Palace of the General Captains, the Town Hall, the Cathedral of San Jose, and the Trade Portal. Here in the park, you will also find the Las Sirenas fountain. This fountain has a traditional folk story where the Count of La Gomera ordered the fountain to be built in memory of his daughters, who after giving birth, did not want to breastfeed their children. The count then ordered his daughters to be tied to a trunk in the center of a waterhole, where they died of thirst and hunger. Continue your way you will visit the La Unión tank, which is one of the most iconic laundries in this city (only the big houses had proper washing facilities). For this reason, most of the inhabitants (housewives) went to public laundries. This was inaugurated on February 3, 1853. At the end of the tour you’ll be transferred back to your hotel in Guatemala City.

Overall rating

Our trip was absolutely beautiful. The views from the city through the mountains and farmlands to Lake Atitlan were amazing, as well as our tour guide! We loved that he was always there with us every step of the way. He was quite knowledgeable of all the current and past events of the country and always cheerful and upbeat. He even went so far as to contact us the night before so that we knew who to expect/what vehicle to look out for in the morning. The weather forecasted rain, but we didn’t see much of it. The weather along the lake was a bit foggier than expected, but once we got to the little town, it was all sunshine. Although breakfast and lunch is not included, there are many pit stops to and from the Lake, as well as restroom breaks. So, I wouldn’t worry about that too much. I would definitely recommend this tour!

Oscar was the best tour guide. We were picked up in a van with another couple. The van does have seatbelts but be prepared for a 3 hour drive from antigua. The drive wasn’t bad at all. We went to San Juan per his request and it was amazing.

It is definitely an experience that you must have on your visit to Guatemala. The journey is exhausting, but it is totally worth it, the views are incredible. It is advisable to do the optional fire walk (not included).

Lago Atlitan is a must! I had a wonderful time there (traveling solo). Guide (Juan Pablo) was superb 🌟

We loved it. The guides were very friendly. We couldn't believe we could do this for this price!!
