A true adventure MTB test-piece. Mountain biking Agua Volcano at 3760m (12,337ft ) is a high altitude epic that very few have done by bike. We start before sunrise with a shuttle to Santa Maria de Jesús, transferring the bikes to horse porters which accompany us to the summit. The hike takes approximately 5 hours – from the crater it is all downhill back to Antigua!
Volcán de Agua is home to one of the longest technical descents in all of Guatemala ~2300m of rocky, steep terrain that follows eroded trails from the rim of the summit crater, finishing in cobblestone streets below. This tour is for riders looking for an extreme volcano mountain bike adventure that is unique to the Americas!
*please note that on our scale of 1-5 this tour garners a 6 in both fitness and technicality.
