Fiery Crater Awaits Adventurous Climbers
A grumbling, smoke-belching spectacle, Pacaya Volcano (2,552 metres / 8,371 feet) beckons adventure-seekers with its breathtaking display of nature’s raw power.
Your morning transfer delivers you to Pacaya’s foothills for a steep hike through a lush pine forest. A widening panorama unfolds on the way up, offering views of northern volcanoes, the Pacific lowlands and all the way to El Salvador.
At the base of the peak itself, a barren moonscape of loose rock and pebbles greets you, adding tricky footing to the adventure. Steam rises from numerous vents, which sometimes yield a view of bright orange magma deep inside. After selfies near the crater, you’ll feast on a sumptuous picnic lunch and savour final views of the summit. This full-day expedition wraps up with a brisk walk down to the park base for your return ride to Antigua.
This Experience rewards enthusiastic climbers with spectacular panoramic views and a delicious gourmet picnic lunch.
