Hike Pacaya

Guatemala

Even though the hike is only 3.2 miles round trip, the terror associated with traversing an active volcano whose last outburst was in January 2014 makes up for the easy climb. Its eruptions are mostly small and consistent, allowing visitors to witness lava rivers and fiery bursts, and even camp out on the caldera. Volcanic activity is heavily monitored so the chances of you avoiding a violent eruption are high, though never guaranteed.
