Active Guatemala: Trekking in style

10 days from £2,054pp

Guatemala

  • TREK GUATEMALA ©

Overview & Highlights

An exhilarating trek through some of Guatemala's most exquisite volcanic scenery with comfortable glamping.

  • Walking tour of Antigua with a local guide

This is an invigorating guided trek in remote highland Guatemala, where you will ascend lofty mountains and descend to sultry valleys, all in just a few days. Every detail has been carefully thought out to balance challenging trekking with style and comfort: it’s definitely more than a relaxing stroll but you benefit from fantastic facilities and service. You’ll rest every night in a spacious safari-style tent with comfy mattress, while the overland support truck is equipped with a hot shower and toilet. You’ll savour superior cuisine served in three full meals a day, and you are accompanied by attentive and knowledgeable guides. You can relax and enjoy your walk, each day you’ll travel light with your day pack while the camp and your gear is moved from one camp site to the next.

Along the way you’ll walk through cloud forest canopy and coffee fincas. As a backdrop to all this is the rich culture, a blend of Mayan and Spanish colonial; pre-Columbian religion and ritual blended with Christianity – see it in the markets at Antigua and the pocket-sized rural communities on the fringe of Lake Atitlán.
