Antigua Half-Day Lost Cities of the Almolonga Bike Tour

Get to know the areas surrounding Antigua with a half-day bike tour. On this trip, which is suitable for beginners and intermediate bike riders, ride to the Almolonga Valley west of Antigua. The area was home of the second capital of Guatemala, Ciudad Vieja. On your trip, see the city life fade and the country life take over as you travel further out. Learn about how the old city met a fateful end in 1541 as a result of a terrible mudslide released from the crater of Agua Volcano. The city disappeared in the valley between Agua, Fuego, and Acatenango volcanoes, and you will hear about the ongoing debate as people try to pinpoint its exact location. While out and about, you will also see the villages of Santiago Zamora and San Antonio Aguas Calientes, and stop off at a macadamia farm. This trip is guaranteed to be an educational experience that will teach you about the history and culture of the area while spending time in the great outdoors!

My guide, Rudy, provided me with a wonderful tour and experience of the areas surrounding Antigua. Rudy has a warm and welcoming energy and provides great conversation and history. The bikes were top notch. We biked about 11 miles and the ride was very causal, only one significant hill which you could choose to walk up. Was back in Antigua at 12:30. Would highly recommend this tour!

It was a very good experience riding a mountain bike in Guatemala. My guide wily Quino, he was super experienced and patient. I had an amazing time. The chocolate tour was very nice.

The punctuality, the route and the information that the guide gave me.

Great activity, see a less touristy side around Antigua Guatemala.

Our guide was fantastic, he really helped us and made it fun!
