Guatemala Adventure

Guatemala’s adventure scene is pretty non-stop. In addition to our Sky Route Trek, there are ample opportunities here to strap on those hiking boots and climb. A great warm-up for trekkers is the Pacaya Volcano 1/2 Day Hike where you can roast marshmallows over lava vents. Feeling a bit more ambitious? Then check out the Acatenango Volcano Day Hike or spend the evening on the volcano with our overnight option. If mountain biking is more your thing, the Antigua valley offers a number of great rides, from beginning to expert. And finally, Antigua Canopy Tours located just outside Antigua is a great spot to zip through the trees on a sprawling green coffee finca.

Below you’ll find a sample 12-day adventure-themed itinerary for your Guatemala visit that we hope appeals to you adrenaline junkies!
