About Us

We are a non-profit, all volunteer hiking agency located in Xela (Quetzaltenango), Guatemala. We offer a wide variety of hikes, ranging from 1-6 days through the mountains and to volcanoes. All the profits we recieve go to Escuela de la Calle (EDELAC). EDELAC runs a school for over 150 kids who have no opportunity for education as well as Hogar Abierto, a home for orphaned and abused children.

We are currently seeking volunteer hiking guides to commit 3 or more months leading hikes and performing office duties. The following are our requirements to be considered for a volunteer hiking guide position:

  • A 3 month absolute minimum time commitment (not including a 10-day trial/training period beforehand);
  • Intermediate Spanish;
  • A first aid qualification;
  • Love of the outdoors, trekking, roughing it, (not sleeping) under the stars, getting wet, cold toes and lumpy oatmeal.;
  • Stellar people-skills, endless patience; and,
  • The ability to work and live as a member of a team.
