Hike an Active Volcano + Lunch at the Summit - Private Tour


We´re going to start this tour with the best energy. We'll pick you up at your hotel in Guatemala City and head to San Vicente Pacaya where Pacaya Volcano is located. It´s a 1-and-a-half-hour trip, so sit back and get comfortable. Feel free to ask your driver or tourist guide if you need anything. A real-life fantasy will be about to start. At the time of getting to San Vicente Pacaya, we´ll start our 1 hour and a half hike. Make sure to keep your camera handy because you´ll take never-to-forget pictures! If good weather is on our side, Acatenango, Fuego, and Agua Volcanoes will be visible. If we´re lucky, we´ll see closely the breathtaking lava rivers and have the chance to melt some marshmallows.
