Hiking on Victoria Peak, Belize.
Climbing Victoria Peak is an adventure few Belizeans or visitors get to experience. It’s 3,675 feet high but the going is mostly through tropical rainforest. The entire trip is approximately 40 miles and doing the hike usually takes about 4 nights and 5 days.
Ensure your backpack is fully equipped with all your necessary gear and equipment and your on your way to triumph when you hit the summit! No easy feat – it is said that less than 300 people have actually made it all the way to the top. Will you be one?

1. iPad – To brag – err, post about all your adventures.
2. Sunglasses – When you’re having champagne on top of a Maya ruin, it’s best to have some spectacles.
3. Swimwear – If you come across a secluded waterfall or just hanging in your private plunge pool.
4. Travel Journal – For all the dear diary moments.
5. Evian Face Spray – So we can stay so fresh and so clean.
6. Sunscreen – Jungle sun is so strong.
7. Literature – When you’re down-timing in a Casita.
8. Insect Repellent – Because we all know how annoying itchy bites are.
9. Comfortable Shoes – Let’s be real, exploring the rainforest isn’t the best in Louboutin’s.

Soar through subtropical jungle on Belize’s longest aerial runway at over 2,700 feet and gain a bird’s eye view of the rainforest below!
Following a scenic 60-minute drive through rugged terrain, Calico Jack’s Village – sitting atop an incline in the Mountain Pine Ridge Region and surrounded by a private 400-acre reserve – comes into sight. Once there, you’re outfitted with climbing cable gear, helmets and leather gloves after which you’re instructed on how to traverse from one platform to the next – all while hooked to the railing from your harness; safety is the priority. Your guide then quickly explains the intricately designed course you’ll be zipping through: fifteen connecting platforms, including a suspended bridge, and culminating with a ride on a hydraulic jungle elevator which lifts you fifty-five feet above the jungle canopy!
