Finishing up at an altitude of almost 3,970 metres, the ascent of the Acatenango volcano is an unmissable stop on a trekking trip to Guatemala. This high-altitude hike offers an incredible view of the Fuego volcano that you will discover at dawn, after a night in a bivouac.
Most hikers complete this tour with or without a guide over two days, departing from the city of Antigua. The steep and rapid elevation gain makes this ascent quite physically demanding. Before setting off, beware of the weather conditions at the top which can be very unpredictable.
