A word from the Guide

By demand we have extended our popular 5 Day enduro tour for a full week of epic riding and sights. This route is as varied as Guatemala itself with sandy volcanic descents, rocky, high and dry pines and rich tropical forests.

Riding a bike in Guatemala gives you a unique perspective to connect Mayan sights while riding ancient Mayan infrastructure on trails and footpaths.

This gravity focused route connects the chain of Guatemala’s highest volcanoes crossing through several distinct regions before finishing with an epic freeride on the active Pacaya Volcano.
