Toliman Volcano Hike

About this tour

One of Lake Atitlan's most challenging trails, the Toliman Volcano hike crosses through cloud forest to reach an imploded volcanic crater.

Price: $115
Duration:1 day
Difficulty: Extreme
Ages: 16+


One of three volcanoes that tower over Lake Atitlan, the 3,000m summit of Volcan Toliman makes for a challenging hike, but also an incredibly unique and intimate experience; you’re unlikely to see other travelers, only fields of avocado trees, coffee plants, and bean stalks. The trail is well-maintained by locals and from these steep paths, it’s possible to see the horned guan (a rare species of turkey, locally known as a ‘pavo’) or even the glorified Quetzal bird.

The hike starts at a local market and it takes 3 and a half hours to reach the summit. With its two majestic peaks, Toliman offers incredible views over the lush Guatemala forest and the volcano’s imploded crater where ancient lava flows remain from the last eruption centuries ago.
