Antigua Valley Loop Mountain Bike Tour

The Antigua valley is blessed with sweet single-track just outside of town. This is one our our favorite new rides that makes a loop around the Antigua valley high on the ridge tops above town.

The trip starts from the Old Town Outfitters shop and climbs steadily out of the valley.

The two day ride or one day cruncher is nearly 70 miles of all day technical mountain bike fun.

Acatenango overnight

Perhaps the best two day adventure trip in Guatemala, Acatenango is a pure trekkers peak.

The trail winds it's way through five distinct climatic zones on its way to the summit.

The last push up the cone is a tough scree climb but the views from the top are unparalleled. You can see the entire Guatemalan ring of fire including nearby Agua and Pacaya volcanoes as well as neighboring active Fuego volcano.

Waking up on the summit of acatenango at sunrise is an extra added treat. Come by the Old Town Outfitters office and book your trip today!
- See ya on the trail!
