Guatemala MTB Trip with Loam Wolf and World Tread



What’s up Wolf Pack? This October we have an amazing MTB trip opportunity we want to enjoy with twelve new friends! Over the years we have been lucky enough to travel and ride around the world and it is safe to say that traveling to far off destinations and riding in places you would never consider have given us some of the most memorable and life-changing experiences. We’ll traveling like experts through Guatemala, staying on the shore of the most beautiful lake in the world, Lake Atitlan, riding alongside erupting volcanos, seeing lush landscapes and ancient ruins like those found in Tecpan. Thanks to our friends from World Tread, we are going to embark on the trip of a lifetime to Guatemala. Seven days of riding some beautiful trails, exploring world class scenery, and eating some delicious meals overlooking beautiful lakes and mountains. Read on to learn more about this all-inclusive trip and how to join.

So, what does the trip look like for attendees? It is an all-inclusive tour with white glove service, laundry and transportation covered. World Tread has spent a lot of time working on logistics, hiring, and working with locals and ensuring that our guests only concern is showing up to ride great trails, and eating great meals before getting a solid night’s rest in quality hotels. Meals, alcohol, trail snacks, lodging, transport, and bike park lift passes are included, meaning you can leave your wallet at the hotel and just enjoy the experience.

Ride days typically include 300-400 feet of climbing with 2,500 to 3,500 feet (about 1.07 km) of descending and would be best suited for a mid-travel aggressive trail or enduro type bike. We think 140-160mm 29er would be the best bet, and you do not have to be an expert shredder to have fun! There will be a variety of trails, multiple guides on site and the ability to modify based on the group’s desires and goals.
