2 night 3 day Expedition to Acatenango and Fuego!  

Your own personal firework show!

Our first objective is to summit Acatenango, Guatemala’s 3rd highest volcano, where we’ll get a bird’s eye view of neighboring Volcan Fuego. If there’s any activity from Fuego’s cone, we’ll have front row seats. A thousand foot (330m.) scree run takes us to the beautiful pine forested saddle between Acatenango and Fuego where we’ll set up camp. As we make our way toward the summit, wind conditions and the level of activity dictate how close we are able to get to Fuego’s multicolored cinder.

  • Spend a night under the stars watching Volcan Fuego Erupt
  • Bag two peaks!
  • Walk up Fuego’s ridge and  hope to feel a rumbling eruption at from just beyond the cone
  • Take in incredible 360° views from atop Acatenango, Guatemala’s 3rd highest volcano
  • Hike through 5 microclimates and old growth forests, across a wide variety of terrain and down 1000ft volcanic scree run

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