Professional, challenging and a unique experience
Fiona_L, Aug 2022
This trip is not for the faint hearted but absolutely worth it. It is a unique hike and overnight camping to watch an active volcano erupting. It is very well run and I felt in good hands considering it was my first time camping. You need good fitness level for this hike, positive attitude and lots of extra layers for the over night stay.
Go in the dry season
Katarzyna_G, Jul 2022
The whole experience of hiking a volcano and watching a sunrise from the base camp was super exciting and the group was great! However, I think that the OX guide couldn't care less about our experience - he was too focused on the pace and completing his goals. He does it twice a week and you can tell, he's become immune. In the base camp he and the local guides just left us alone for hours. It's still unclear to me why we had to wait until the evening to eat dinner after arriving in the camp around 3pm and just sitting by the fire for hours - really thankful for the group, the people were amazing - we were all hungry tho, eating up our snacks. Prepare yourself for the cold - it is very cold up there. The guides set up fire and stuff but it might be difficult to sleep for some (they provide sleeping bags and you sleep in a simple cabin but it is cold). Prepare yourself that you might not make it all the way to the summit - our guide decided to turn around because of the difficult weather conditions. In the rain season you might also not see the eruptions from Fuego. We were lucky to see them for about 30 minutes but if you go in the dry season, I'm sure a night-long spectacle is awaiting you. - Go in the dry season :) :) :) - Get a porter to carry your bakcpack - they want you to bring 4liters of water - it's crazy heavy. You'll support local people and local guides that way (they help carrying backpacks if there are no porters available). - You will have a great time :)
Life changing

This was a life changing experience. I must thank Roland for helping me and not letting me give up. I wouldn’t have done it without his encouragement. The meals provided were yummy!! I recommend this company!

Ox expeditions - Catenango Overnight 19th March 2022 Rating 10 / 10 Very professional guides, very friendly and suppo
RICHARD_H, Mar 2022
Ox expeditions - Catenango Overnight 19th March 2022 Rating 10 / 10 Very professional guides, very friendly and supportive Lots of extra kit( jackets, fleeces, hats gloves etc) available at no extra charge. Plenty of breaks during hike. Base camp very well set up with tents facing Volcan Fuego. Toilet very much appreciated. Seating area and shelter great for eating and socialising. Loved being around the camp fire. The hiking was the most challenging I've ever done and the buzz from getting up to the summit and then seeing sunrise followed by an eruption from Fuego was the icing and cherry on the cake. I would recommend Ox expeditions to anybody wanting an awesome experience in Guatemala. Kind regards Richard Harris

I enjoyed my trip with OX. They’re very organized and provided a majority of things we needed (bag, sleeping bag, mat, warm clothing, food). The guides are well knowledgeable. I highly recommend this company if you’re considering hiking Acatenango overnight
Amazing experience!

Triunfo Salvaje
Edwin_B, Jan 2022
Esta sin dudas es "la aventura", prepárate física y psicológicamente, no es broma. Si no eres de la comunidad senderista, esto va a ser duro. Tienes la opción de aligerar el viaje pagando adicional por un asistente que lleve tu equipaje de supervivencia, el cual será una mochila de mínimo 50 litros, con ropa de abrigo, bolsa de dormir, snacks, cosas personales y 4 litros de agua. En lo personal, nosotros cargamos con el nuestro. La expedición sale a las 7am del día 1 desde las oficinas de la empresa, el día anterior ofrecen una charla de preparación. Antes de comenzar el ascenso, al pie de la montaña, podrás alquilar una o dos varas de apoyo por 5 quetzales cada una. La vara es de madera pero ultra resistente y liviana. Hazlo. El ascenso comienza a las 9am, se hacen paradas para descansar y una para almorzar. Llegas al campamento base a las 3pm. Aquí tendrás la opción, por un costo adicional, de hacer una caminata extra hasta el camellón del Volcán de Fuego, experiencia única en la vida. Esta expedición sale a las 4pm y regresa a las 8pm, es la parte mas dura, ya que es una larga cuesta abajo y luego una larga cuesta arriba hasta el camellón, permaneces ahí 30 minutos absolutamente inolvidables a 0° o menos y regresas por el mismo camino de vuelta al campamento base. El día 2 te levantan a las 3am aprox. para prepararte para la cima del Acatenango, el grupo comienza el ascenso a las 4am y llegas a las 6am a la cumbre (foto). Regresas a las oficinas del operador en Antigua a las 1pm del día 2. Ten esto en cuenta para temas de transporte. Recomendación: llevar medicamentos para regulación gástrica y analgésicos.
