Acatenango Volcano Overnight Hike

Safely watch a volcano erupt all night long! From barely two kilometres away!

Acatenango is a stratovolcano that stands nearly 4000m high. Begin near its base and hike through a number of fascinating ecoregions before setting up camp on a high shoulder and waiting for the show to begin.

Volcan de Fuego, Acatenango’s neighbor, is one of the most active volcanoes on earth. It erupts 300 – 500 times a day. 

Watch smoke and debris get shot into the air as your private guides prepare dinner. Once the sun goes down, see fiery red magma erupt from the crater and spill down its steep sides. 

After a night’s sleep, continue to Acatenango’s summit for an unforgettable sunrise and a gawp down into Fuego’s erupting cone.
