Be amazed by raw natural beauty, wonderfully rich Mayan culture, and endless opportunities for active adventure.
Discover Guatemala, a country rich in diversity and natural beauty, on this eight-day multi-sport adventure. Experience Guatemala's intriguing blend of Mayan culture and Spanish colonial influence as you stroll through the amazingly well-preserved colonial town of Antigua, with its cobblestone streets, ruins, elaborate churches, and bustling market.
Hike to the summit of the active, fiery Pacaya Volcano and spend the night under the stars on the slopes of Acatenango Volcano, with an epic view of the nearly constant eruptions from neighboring Volcán de Fuego. Go on a cycling tour of the Almolonga Valley and immerse yourself in the Mayan-influenced culture of the local towns and markets. Spend two days hiking, kayaking, and mountain biking around the simply magical Lake Atitlan. This is Central America's deepest lake, filling an ancient caldera framed by surrounding volcanic peaks, and is widely considered to have one of the most picturesque lakefronts in the world. Return from this action-packed escape inspired by both the rugged beauty of the land and the warmth of the people.

For travel insurance, we recommend VisitorsCoverage.
We recommend you visit the local government websites where you plan to travel and review the required documentation for entry, current restrictions, and general recommendations for travel within the area. We encourage you to also visit your home country's embassy website if you are traveling to a foreign country. Requirements can change rapidly. Please be sure you stay abreast of the requirements and restrictions for anywhere you plan to visit. You can also enroll in the U.S. government’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) and you will be sent updates if the situation in your destination changes.
