Challenge = OX-TREME:
OK, this is the toughest physical challenge that we offer, this is very physically demanding. This should ONLY be attempted by those in top physical condition. No exceptions! This is NOT a family fun tour. Expect 8 to 10 hours of hiking with a full backpack from 1 to 4 days of hiking. Technical trails with slippery slopes, rock scrambling and steep terrain can be expected.
Hard to say, but maybe it would be roasting marshmallows over a volcanic hotspot. Or it could be watching your wine ripple due to a little cough from Volcan Fuego. Or maybe the possibility of seeing glowing red rocks the size of Volkswagen vans shoot out of Volcan Fuegos crater and 1,000ft (300m) in the air. Hmmm...???
Night stay at Base Camp, professional guide, transport, meals (for 3 days), all camping equipment, warm clothing, park entrance fees, etc. Bring a sleeping bag and backpack or borrow/rent one of ours!
As the name implies, two red glowing-smoking horns straight from the guts of the planet. Volcanoes Pacaya & Fuego are two of the most active volcanoes on planet earth. This mini-expedition takes you to the slopes of both these active volcanoes. Expect to overnight camp on both, and get ready for an adventure!!
Damage: (U.S.) $249. ..and one slap on the wrist!
