Guatemala is considered Central America’s most diverse country, offering landscapes and experiences that have been enticing travellers for centuries.
Undertaking the Guatemala Volcano Trek challenge is not for the faint hearted – summiting five active volcanoes in seven days including Tajumulco – the highest peak in Central America at an incredible 4,220m. By taking the road less travelled, you will be rewarded with striking views and a chance to discover the magic and mystery of the Mayan culture. You may also get the chance to toast marshmallows over molten lava flows!
