Guatemala Adventure

Guatemala’s adventure scene is pretty non-stop. In addition to our Antigua to Lake Atitlán 4-Day 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.

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