Overnight trip mountain biking the active Pacaya Volcano
Our trip to Pacaya was a good luck story: 2 days of great weather in the heart of the rainy season in Guatemala. A new route: 16 attendees – two support vehicles and camping made this the biggest logistical trip for Mountain Bike Guatemala to date.
For years we have been exploring ways to connect Antigua and the active Pacaya volcano by bike. The result is a route that circumnavigates the volcanic slopes with over 10,000ft of shuttle-supported descent in two days. Want to join us on our next trip? Get in touch here

Eco Park Collaboration
This trip was our first collaboration with ecological park Finca el Amate on the southern side of the volcano. The property was partially consumed by a large eruption in 2010 when a new crater opened a lava river that came within 70m of the house! After the eruption the family dedicated the property to conservation – opening a wildlife and bird watching park.
