With deep lakes, active volcanoes, miles of pristine jungle, and thousands of indigenous species of flora and fauna, Guatemala's geography is stunning. In addition to its many natural wonders, Guatemala is the Mayan heartland of Central America. Not only does Guatemala have more Mayan ruins than Mexico, the streets are still alive with indigenous people dressed in blazing colors and bustling markets that have existed for centuries and remain important elements of the fabric of this society. For any woman who wants to combine active travel with cultural exploration, Guatemala is a place you need to visit. The volcano trek will take us over and through stunning topography and lead us to the world's most beautiful lake, Atitlan. Max group size: 12.

This trip is perfect for women in good physical condition who want an active vacation exploring Guatemala. We'll get warmed up with a day hike on Pacaya Volcano before embarking on our overnight volcano trek. During the trek our miles will range from 7 - 9.3 miles per day, keeping us at elevations between 6,000 and 9,000 feet above sea level. We leave camp each morning around 8:30am, and usually arrive to our next camp by 4pm each afternoon. This trip is rated a 4 as it involves strenuous hiking, carrying daypacks (with water, snacks and rain layers), and significant elevation gain and loss. Rating: 1 2 3  5
This adventure focuses on hiking and trekking with a daypack while our luggage is shuttled to our next glamping spot. Our mileage ranges between 6-8.5 miles per day at elevation (5,000-9,000 feet above sea level) with significant inclines and declines. We finish the trip with a lake kayaking tour (no experience necessary) and ziplining.
We'll spend our first two nights in a modern hotel in Antigua Hotel Eterna Primavera. During the trek we will be in 10' x 14' spacious canvas tents that fit up to two queen-size inflatable mattresses along with a shared bedside table. The comforters are goose-down and we will be provided hot water bottles to ensure a warm and cozy night’s sleep. There is a "Trek Truck" that accompanies us at each camp that has a toilet, sink and hot water shower. While at Lake Atitlan, we will stay in the incredible La Casa del Mundo. Accessible only by boat or by foot, this hotel is an eco-friendly paradise unlike any other.
Below is the proposed itinerary for the trip. As is true on any adventure travel trip, plans for any specific day may be modified due to weather considerations, unforeseen circumstances, new opportunities, and group interests.
