VOLCANOES


Yeah, we got some of them! Guatemala is blessed with a diverse and natural landscape with 28 volcanoes that form the backbone of the Guatemalan Highlands. Three such beasts loom over the city of Antigua where the O.X. office is located (Volcanoes: Agua, Fuego and Acatenango). Volcan Pacaya is right in our backyard as well (just not so looming). We offer tours ranging from easy all the way to OX-TREME. Want something mellow but very cool, sleep with O.X. overnight on the famous and active Volcan Pacaya where you escape the crowds and roast marshmallows over hot spots. Short on time but want a bit of a challenge? O.X. will take you to play on a 5 to 5 tour of Volcan Acatenango, it's an all day event but a real beauty. The ultimate overnight is the mighty Volcan Acatenango overnight excursion, sunset & sunrise at 13,000ft while looking down on active and angry Volcan Fuego. Wow!!! For the more extreme, climb on with O.X. as we execute one of our OX-TREME tours like the DOUBLE WHAMMY, TRIDENT or SPIRES of FIRE !!! We are not your Momma's guiding company. We want to provide something raw and beautiful and life changing. But this kind of adventure leans toward the difficult side. So jump on an O.X. tour and join in the fun.


** AGUA VOLCANO tours currently closed due to security issues.

ACATENANGO

ox adventures guatemala volcano hikes

Traveler rated the most beautiful volcano in all of Central America. The O.X. Team agrees. This volcano has it all, diverse temperate zones, incredible views and it is a big boy, 13,041ft. / 3976m. The highlight, looking down onto active Volcan Fuego as it threatens an eruption.

FUEGO

True to it's name, the "FIRE" volcano offers some spicy adventure not for the faint of heart. This long-technical trail takes you around its neighbor Acatenango and up to the famous "knife-ridge" with a 500m drops on either side and the angry summit ahead.

PACAYA

Active, easy and fun for the whole family, Volcan Pacaya is the little volcano that just keeps on giving. More quiet now since the last eruption in May 2010, it is easy to trek over cooled lava flows in search of gas vents and "HOT" spots to roast marshmallows.
