Challenge = OX-TREME:
OK, this is the toughest physical challenge that we offer, this is very physically demanding. This should ONLY be attempted by those in top physical condition. No exceptions! This is NOT a family fun tour. Expect 8 to 10 hours of hiking with a full backpack from 1 to 4 days of hiking. Technical trails with slippery slopes, rock scrambling and steep terrain can be expected.
Roasting marshmallows on one of Pacaya's volcanic hot spots, watching a sunset rom 4,000 meters while sipping a glass of wine, pissing your pants on the knife ridge as the volcano lets out a ground shaking BOOM!!!
Night stay at Base Camp, professional guide, meals, warm clothing, tents, sleeping pads, transportation, etc. Bring a sleeping bag and backpack or borrow/rent one of ours.
This expedition takes you to two of the most active volcanoes in Guatemala, with the most beautiful volcano as a stop in between. This is the triple volcano hiking and camping adventure of a lifetime! Get ready to hunt volcanic hot spots on the famous Volcan Pacaya, watch a sunset from above the clouds at 13,000ft (4,000m) on the summit camp of Volcan Acatenango, and complete your trek by ascending the knife-ridge of angry Volcan Fuego. This is the three pronged volcanic expedition we call the "Trident-the devil's pitchfork."
