Today our tour starts at 5:00 am with a one-hour drive from Antigua to La Soledad Village, at the slopes of Volcan Acatenango. This volcano is the third tallest Volcano in Guatemala, after Tacana and Tajumulco volcanoes. You should eat breakfast beforehand and we highly recommend to pack snacks for the road.
The hike takes about 4 hours’ up, where at the first part you will have an encounter with the nature which lead us through the local farm fields where the local villagers grow their basic food groceries. This is a high effort hike for those who like to mix the adventure, nature and love to challenge their body to the limit.
At the summit you will be rewarded with the most amazing view of the other highland volcanoes such as Atitlan, Toliman, San Pedro, Santa Maria, Santo Tomas and Tajumulco volcanoes. Also, with a little luck, Fuego Volcano will show you its force and stateliness making explosions of gas, rock and lava.
While you are enjoying of this displaying of the mother nature, our guide will be preparing a delicious picnic lunch.
After a while you will start descending in the same way you went in, at La Soledad the driver will be waiting for the transfer back to Antigua.
