Hiking Tajumulco Volcano

At an elevation of 13,845 feet (4,220 meters), the Tajumulco Volcano is the highest point in Central America. This tour takes you to its summit.

The Tajumulco Volcano is located 42 miles (68 km) northwest of Quetzaltenango. The hike to the summit takes around 5 to 6 hours and isn't extremely challenging as long as you're acclimatized. On a clear day you can see into Western Guatemala and sometimes even Mexico.

This hike begins very early in the morning. You'll take a private shuttle to the base of the volcano and begin hiking. The hike up is moderately difficult, but slightly easier because you won't bring heavy bags.

This tour offers travelers a unique high-alpine experience in Guatemala. Be sure to bring appropriate clothing and a jacket, as it can be quite chilly at the summit.

After a rest at the top of the volcano, you'll descend and arrive back in Quetzaltenango around 2:00 PM the same day.
