Whether you prefer your thrills on wheels, on foot, or on water, these three intrepid tours get the adrenaline going and also showcase some of the most stunning natural spots that Guatemala, Belize, and Honduras have to offer. Here’s to your next adventure.
Alaska: On Wheels or On Foot
(Highland Region, Guatemala)
Located in the Guatemalan highlands, Alaska is a windswept, rocky area of tall grasses, agricultural fields, and tiny indigenous communities. Gear up here for a bike ride or hike along the same footpaths that have been used by generations of Maya. Pass grazing sheep, pine forests, squat adobe homes, and sacred Maya sites while enjoying incredible volcano views.
(Pico Bonito National Park, Honduras)
Northern Honduras’s Pico Bonito National Park is home to the picturesque Río Cangrejal, a jungle-lined waterway that boasts excellent whitewater rafting and kayaking. Newbies can focus on basic boating skills while exploring appropriate stretches of water; experience adventurers can tackle more daunting rapids—all the way up to Class V.
Wilderness by Bike or Canoe
(Cayo District, Belize)
The Mountain Pine Ridge Forest Reserve in Belize’s Cayo District comprises pine-covered hills, streams, and forests. Enjoy stellar bike trails offering long views and chance encounters with grey foxes, deer, and snakes. For an up-close look at Cayo’s jungles, set out on a canoe adventure along the Macal River, home to myriad species of tropical birds and giant green iguanas.
