Survey the world from 13,000 feet (4,000 m) on a guided trek to the summit of Acatenagno Volcano. Departing from Antigua, the 2-day trek is perfect for seasoned hikers who want to experience the best of Guatemalan trekking. From the summit you're less than one mile from the active Volcan de Fuego, which might put on a show while you’re there.

Great friendly tour guides who were really flexible and friendly. It's a tough hike, but extremely rewarding. Facilities up the vulcano were also nicely arranged. And the possibility to rent and loan all needed hiking gear is usefull
