High, alpine and unworldly

For those unfamiliar the north of Guatemala is absolutely stunning with a unique dry climate with rolling hills along a unique alpine plateau with agave plants and limestone cliffs. Locals here heard sheep and brave sub-freezing temperatures at night. The riding here is unworldly and unlike anything in North America.

Jan 11th - Dos Aguacates Enduro

True to its name, “La Antigua” is a UNESCO world heritage site with loads of history to explore.

Today we will become more acquainted with the valley – by shredding a couple of the epic downhills above town! We will shuttle up to the flanks of the Acatenango Volcano to 2500m for our first descent. Which will take us down through avocado and coffee plantations along steep and eroded agricultural trails. Shuttle number two will set us up for a screaming descent down rough, tunnels and an urban descent into Antigua.
