The Pacaya Volcano Tour starts with a 1.5 hour’s drive from Antigua to the volcano park entrance from where the hike begins. This is an intermediate hike and doable by most hikers however locals offer the option to continue the climb on horseback if required (not included). The hike will take 1 to 2 hours, depending on the fitness level of your group, and incorporates various breaks for resting and photos. Reaching the lava field, you will have climbed around 500 meters (1,500 feet) in elevation, offering impressive views of the surrounding areas and nearby volcanoes. After taking in the surrounding views, you’ll explore the lava fields, where you can feel the heat of the lava stones and roast marshmallows above the heat vents. The hike down is easier and faster and after reconvening at the park entrance, you will return to Antigua.

  • Round-trip Transport (private or collective depending on booking type)
