Our tour starts with a morning transfer (1hr) to the foothills of the active Pacaya volcano.

The hike then begins with a fairly strenuous hike through a wonderful pine forest, then through a more tricky volcanic ash section and finally to the sulfur smoking cone.

On occasions you can even see small eruptions and lava flow depending on the activity of the volcano. From the summit we can enjoy great views to the northern volcanoes, the pacific lowlands and all the way to El Salvador. Back at the base of the volcano, our support vehicle awaits us for our transfer back to Antigua.
