Title
For the ardent trekker, the Mayan highlands of Guatemala will prove a kind of paradise. Departing from the city of Antigua, this nine-day tour takes you through winding valleys, deep ravines and across a magnificent plateau with views of the ring of fire volcanic chain, finally arriving on the shores of Lake Atitlan. If you had only one word to describe this trekking holiday it would have to be epic.

Led by a guide, you’ll pass through the hotbed of rebellion during Guatemala’s 35-year civil war, the Ixil Triangle; tour a working cheese farm, and overnight in haciendas and community hostels. A highlight is a stay at the Unicorno Azul, a horse ranch that offers sublime panoramas over rolling hills on every side.

Beyond the stunning scenery, the hiking promises plenty of challenge, especially as you will be at high altitudes for a lot of the time. Some days are more moderate however, as you cross plateaus threaded with small villages so remote there is no electricity or road connections. If it’s isolation you seek, you’ll find it here in spades. Few travellers make it out this far, and the sense of being a pioneer is ever-present.
