Pacaya Volcano Day Trip from Guatemala City

    What to Expect
    Experience the natural beauty of Guatemala’s most active volcano on this full-day trip to Pacaya from Guatemala City. You’ll hike 8,000 feet above sea level with your expert local guide as you navigate the trails of the country’s most active volcano.

    The 2.5-hour hike to the top of Pacaya is easy enough for the novice trekker and still challenging enough to feel like a workout. Viewpoints along the way offer up incredible panoramic landscapes that include nearby Agua, Fuego and Acatenango volcanoes. Your guide will share stories and history about this incredible volcano as you make your way to the top, pointing out vegetation and wildlife as you hike.

    Once you reach the top you’ll be able to marvel at incredible views and take an up close look at red-hot lava flowing in the volcano’s crater. You’ll have some time to relax in the rocky terrain before making your way back to the volcano’s base with your guide. Complimentary round-trip hotel transport is included in this tour.
