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.
Are you kidding? Jet engine gas venting, thunderous explosions, venting hot-spots, pyroclastic flows, fumaroles, etc. etc. Uh did we mention the fire?!!
Night stay at Base Camp, professional guide, breakfast, lunch and dinner (for 5 days), warm clothing, tents, sleeping pads, transportation (5 days),accommodation, Experience of a lifetime!
Ok folks. This is not a normal everyday excursion... This is an expedition of fire! O.X. will take you to three of the world's most active volcanos in less than a week and by no means is this an easy tour. It is not common to see all of Guatemala's active volcanoes, hiking hard and getting hot. This tour takes us from one end of Guatemala to the other to seek the hot-spots!!! If you got the time and the dough, don't miss it. When you are telling your grandkids about it a few years from now they will think you are the coolest!
Damage: (U.S.) $599.
