The combined Lake Atitlan and Volcano Tour is designed for motorcycle enthusiasts who want to experience Guatemala in a nutshell.

Lake Atitlan is considered one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. It's a stunning natural wonder that has enchanted travelers from all over the globe for centuries.

Surrounded by three towering volcanoes, the shores of Lake Atitlan are home to about a dozen Maya villages that preserve and practice their ancient traditions despite modern influences.

Day 1

We start at 7:30am. Our tour takes us through Parramos to the famous Panamerican Highway and from there to the Mayan village of Patzun. The ride continues between fir forests and pastures before we take the beautifully winding road off the beaten track to Lake Atitlan. The views from overlooks along the way are breath-taking and there will be enough opportunities to take photos and videos.

Curve after curve, you'll arrive to Panajachel in the early afternoon. Pana, as locals call it, is a famous hippie stronghold of the seventies and eighties, on the shore of Lake Atitlan. This is where you'll spend the rest of the day exploring the famous handicraft market, sipping some tasty local coffee or simply chilling out at the Sunset Café doing what the name suggests with a cold beer in your hand. It doesn't get much better than that, trust us.

Day 2

The next morning you'll be descending through coffee country to the tropical coastal highway in Cocales. Santa Lucía Cotzumalguapa is where the Volcano Tour starts, the icing on the cake. Temperatures get cooler as you chase the curves along the foothills of Acatenango volcano on the road road to San Pedro Yepocapa and Parramos. Fresh tarmac, no traffic and endless twisties. Nirvana for every motorcycle aficionado. The 2-day joy ride ends in Antigua in the early afternoon.

Who is the Lake Atitlan Tour for?

We recommend the Lake Atitlan Tour for intermediate to advanced riders with or without a passenger.

Who is the Lake Atitlan tour not for?

Inexperienced riders may feel uncomfortable on certain stretches with bad pavement. Adrenaline junkies will find the Royal Enfield is too much Zen and not the racer they were hoping for.
