Rather than do the day trip with hundreds of other travellers to the vocano, you can do an overnight camp to lava with a caompany called OX, based in Antigua. You need to note a few things before you visit them. The owner Victor, an american guy, is very pushy and money orientated. Try not to deal with him - he is very in your face. The website says they supply all your camping gear, but then when we asked Victor for things on the day he refused to supply us with a torch for no apparent reason. He could have told us that at the time ofbooking and we could have got one for the trip. Even local/ex-pat cafe owenrs we spoke to said the locals do not like him because he is obsessed with money! Make sure whatevere you do, he doesnot go on your trip as a guide as he will spoil it with his bad attitude.
Now to the trek - our guides Steve and Sophie were execellent, and were english speaking. They helped everyone and were very informative and friendly. You share carrying the campig gear between the whole group and pitch the tents when you get up there. All the day groups are coming down as you trek up the volcano. You get up there and you have the volcano to yourself. You see the lava flow at night, they cook you dinner and have a few glasses of wine. In the morning you get up for sunrise, see thelava again, have breakfast before descending. It is a magical experience!!and worth the extra money. If wedidn't have to deal with Victor it woud have been the best experience but his aggresive and unfriendly attitude at the start was the only issue. Do this trip with OX for something special!
