Acatenango 4×4

4X4 Adventure up Acatenango

Our signature hike, combined with an adventure 4X4 off-road ride to the trailhead, is certainly a unique way to see the wild side of Guatemala. Whether you are the type of person seeking an adventurous ride up the volcano, or if you just want to knock off most of the uphill trek, this trip is for you. Our last 500 meter push is where we park the car, allowing us to still enjoy a solid, beautiful hike. On the overnight trip, we hike to a stunning campsite overlooking Volcan Fuego, and summit the next morning. On the day tip, we hike directly to the summit, and get back to Antigua with plenty of time to enjoy the evening.

  • Cut off 3.5 hours of hiking time
  • Drive offroad up steep hill through farms and forests
  • Hike the final 500 meters to the summit
  • Enjoy incredible 360° views of the surrounding landscape
  • Spend time looking over the spectacularly active Volcan Fuego

Check out our “Mountains to Sea” extension which combines the summit of Acatenango and a trip down to the surf beach of El Paredon to relax sore muscles and take a surf lesson.

  • Old Town is happy to provide logistics for film crews, photo shoots or anything else unique you have planned and need to get a lot of stuff up to 13,000 ft.
