A word from the Guide

[/vc_column_text][vc_column_text]After years of riding, guiding and exploring in Guatemala I dreamed up the idea of a point-to-point tour of the highlands connecting a variety of sights and regions. 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 route crosses the chain of Guatemala’s highest volcanoes and through several distinct regions dipping into Quiché and Chichicastingango before passing through Quetzaltenango and finishing with rest day at Lake Atitlán.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_single_image image=”5253″ img_size=”full” alignment=”center” style=”vc_box_circle_2″ css=”.vc_custom_1545510422480{padding-top: 20px !important;padding-right: 20px !important;padding-bottom: 20px !important;padding-left: 20px !important;}”][vc_column_text]
