So Juergen Willrodt mentioned “..a really tough ride with lots of climbing and lots of dirt road..”. I’m not scared of climbing, but how much dirt are we talking about? I’m particularly interested in Section 3 – Volcanoes & Temples. That section is marked Average Difficulty, which means terrain is more of a factor, but how much more? One of the participants or guides answer please. Thank you.

    Hi Mikhail, That is a beautiful section but it has much less climbing and dirt than the other two. The second and third days are pretty amazing with some huge climbs and some dirt roads. After that you descend into Northern Guatemala which is much flatter and pretty much all paved. Hope you can join us. Feel free to email us at [email protected] for any additional information.
