Overview

Book
Overlooked by many travellers to Central America, El Salvador is the smallest country in the region and one of the most delightful; our superb 2 week walking holiday takes us on journey around the country, taking in walks on 8 of its 20 volcanic peaks as we go. Along our way we’ll also take time out to experience El Salvador’s colourful colonial towns, cloud forest trails, mayan ruins, coffee plantations and stunning Pacific Ocean beaches. After a night in the capital we head to the nearby El Boqueron National park where we take the short walk to the viewpoint on San Salvador’s name sake volcano (1800m). Heading east to the Los Volcanes National Park we’ll hike up the perfect cone of Volcan Izalco (1952m) and scale San Salvador’s highest volcano, Ilamatepec/Santa Ana (2381m). Journeying north to the Honduras border we’ll reach the countries highest point at El Pital (2,730m); from here, on a clear day, we’ll be rewarded with views over into Honduras and across to the volcanoes of Pacaya and Agua in Guatemala. Next, we’ll spend 2 days in and around the delightful colonial town of Suchitoto on Lake Suchitlan, where we’ll enjoy a well earned relaxation day before climbing dormant Volcan Guazapa (1438m). The coffee farming towns of Berlin and Alegria, nestled in the eastern highlands, will provide our next base as we climb Tecapa (1593m) and Chinchontepec/San Vincente (2173m). Finally we reach the coast and head up our last mainland volcano, Chonchagua (1225m), before taking the short boat ride to Isla Zacatillo in the Gulfo de Fonseca. Here we’ll spend a memorable night camping on a secluded beach before accomplishing our last objective, the tiny island volcano of Evaristo (500m). We’ll end our holiday with two nights R&R on the coast at El Cuco; what better way to round off our adventure than relaxing in a hammock on the shores of the Pacific Ocean.

Local guide is brilliant. Showed great care for group throughout trip. his passion for his country came across strongly, he wanted to make everything run smoothly for us. Trip notes need looking at as descriptions not match terrain. Good mix walking & culture & for a first / second group trying this route was very good. Accommodation good.

We are just some from our two weeks of climbing volcanoes in El Salvador. It was great to be in an "off the beaten track" location for our trip. The local guide was fantastic and it was great to see so much and learn so much about El Salvador. We are working our way south on Central American volcanoes and can't wait until we can head onto our next trip. This trip had it all...a fun group, interesting walks, lots of volcanoes, and a good intro to all this Salvadorian!
