What You Can Expect
After pickup from your Guatemala City hotel, head southeast about 15 miles (25 km) to the base of Pacaya, where you’ll embark on a 2.5-hour hike up the volcano with your expert guide. Enjoy a mild walk to a viewing spot at the lagoon of Calderas and take in panoramic views of the Agua, Fuego and Acatenango volcanoes. As you continue hiking toward the top, learn about the history of this active volcano and spot unique volcanic vegetation along the way.
Once you arrive at a plateau along the trail, marvel at spectacular views of the Guatemala landscape and see the main crater of the volcano. To ensure your safety, you won’t be able to visit the crater, but you will get an amazing view of red-hot lava flowing and steam baths created by the heat of Pacaya.
Take a break and relax here as you take in more scenic views before hiking back to the base of the volcano.
Great hike. It is not easy but well worth the effort.
Very professional and for Volcano enthusiasts it a must see! Hike is a little challenging in the beginning but if you power through no need for the horse(Even though you get asked a million times to take the horse!). I love that the tours are so professional in every country conducted by partners of Viator. Winston was a treat and he was on time to pick us up and get us back safely! Highly recommended!
