Lake Atitlán Cross Country Tour (Hard)

Guatemala has some seriously big terrain and this 2 day Lake Atitlán Cross Country Tour combines big climbs, technical descents, and rewarding views that make the region a paradise for mountain biking.

Lake Atitlán is one of the best places to mountain bike in Guatemala – its enormous topography, perfect climate 12-24°C (55-75°F year round) and friendly local culture make it a highlight for many travelers. Around the lake there are hundreds of singletrack paths where we’ll explore connecting terraced onion fields, agricultural byways and ancient Mayan trading routes.

Highlights:

  • Reach Lake Atitlán via a remote and canyonous route
  • Visit the Mayan Ruins of Iximché
  • See one of the world’s most beautiful lakes from the saddle of your bike.
  • Views of 8 volcanoes.
  • Lake Atitlán Cross Country Tour: this route is 80% technical agricultural singletrack
  • Ride an impressive ridge line with 360 degree views of the Lake
  • Descend the iconic “culebra” downhill
  • Visit the towns of Panajachel, San Antonio and Santa Catarina Palopó
