Guatemala's Magnificent Seven

Guatemala's Magnificent Seven Overview

Hike to the summits of 7 Guatemalan volcanoes

West of Guatemala City, the highland area of the altiplano is bounded to the south by a string of impressive volcanic peaks. Rich in Maya culture and blessed with a wonderful climate, this picturesque region is the focus of our great volcano trekking holiday extravaganza. Setting out from the charming Spanish colonial city of Antigua, we begin our trekking holiday in Guatemala with ascents of Pacaya (2552m), the spectacularly active Fuego (3760m) and dormant Acatenango (3976m) volcanoes. Camping on top of the latter, we have tremendous dawn views of the surrounding volcanoes and of the distant Pacific Ocean. Transferring to the peaceful Quiche Indian town of Quetzaltenango, we climb Santa Maria (3772m) for a birds eye view over the fiery Volcan Santiaguto and Volcan Zunil (3542m) where we have another spectacular ridge top camp. Our penultimate objective is Tajumulco (4220m), the highest point in Central America. Having earned a little rest and relaxation, we spend 2 nights on the shores of the breathtakingly beautiful Lake Atitlan, before climbing our final volcano, San Pedro (3040m) overlooking the lake. Guatemala is a great trekking destination and has a freshness that will appeal to any adventure traveller.
