The tour begins with a ride in a truck (specifically, a Unimog Mercedes Benz) to the zip-line area. On your slow trek upwards, you’ll pass a coffee plantation. Observe the cultivation of coffee plants, and be sure to take a deep breath and enjoy the aroma of coffee beans. Travelers interested in hiking through the forest to the zip-lines will be dropped off early and led down a forested trail. You’ll cross over hanging bridges and walk along a path through dense foliage.

Once you get to the zip-lining area, you’ll have two options. There’s the Forest Express, which consists of 6 zip-lines of varying lengths and finishes with an assisted rappel down a tree from 40 feet (12 m) high. The other option is the Canyon Express. Designed for adventure lovers, this consists of two huge zip-lines over the canyon—they are almost 1,700 feet (518 m) long and 500 feet (152 m) tall.

These zip-lines are definitely the most exciting way to experience the forest canopy. While you’re on the platforms in trees, be on the lookout for wildlife and birds. Guides accompany you the entire way and ensure that you remain safe and secure.

Travelers who want to experience the forest and farm but not the zip-lines can walk along a forested trail down through the property. You can also choose to take the truck back down, too.

Acatenango is a twin-peaked stratovolcano. The volcano erupted between 1924 and 1927 and again in 1972. Volcanic ash from these explosions traveled as far as 15 miles away. Larger eruptions also occurred some 2,000 and 5,000 years ago.
