Nevado de Toluca is Mexico's fourth highest mountain and offers some of the best moderate alpine climbing in Mexico.



The Nevado de Toluca National Parkwas decreed a park in 1936 to protect the volcano. We recommend several activities such as hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding in the national park.

The Complete Rim Traverse (easy class 3 rock scramble at some places) is an outstanding alpine-style ridge climb which rivals similar routes in the alps.


Trip plan

We will pick you up at the destination of your choice (usually Mexico City International Airport or hotel) and transport you to the trailhead.

If you prefer to spend the night on the mountain before the summit day, we can arrange lodging at several huts located on the mountain.

The climb itself is very scenic, offers some gorgeous views and is non-technical for the most part.

Our experienced guides are well equipped to guide you through any rock-scramble terrain. After summiting, you can continue traverse the entire crater rim. After returning back to the trailhead, we will transport you back to your hotel or your next adventure as this is a good starting point to many other destinations in Mexico.


Acclimatization

If you are coming from sea-level or area with much lower altitude, we recommend to add a day or two in Mexico City (7,382') or Toluca (8,750') to get used to the altitude.
Our team has the expertise to recommend an itinerary based on each client group's needs and create an acclimatization plan to increase your ability to summit.

Our guides are EMT trained and ready to respond to acute altitude sickness symptoms.




Altitude: 15,354 feet.

Activity: Trekking Pico del Fraile or Pico del Águila. One day.

Entity: Mexico Estate.

Location: Toluca.



 



This extinct volcano was declared National Park on October 6, 1938, with a protected area of 45,711 hectares.



Tours are made to its highest parts.

From its summit, at 4,400 meters above sea level, one can see the landscape of three states and distinguish the snows of Pico de Orizaba, Iztaccíhuatl and Popocatépetl.

Among its attractions are the summit, the ravine of San Juan and the old crater that shows traces of the glacier.




Altitude: 14,636 feet.

Activity: Trekking, one day.

Entity: Tlaxcala Estate.

Location: La Malinche National Park.

 



Iztaccíhuatlis the nation's third highest summit, after Pico de Orizaba 5,636 m (18,491 ft) and Popocatépetl 5,426 m (17,802 ft), and the seventh highest in North America.



The name "Iztaccíhuatl" is Nahuatl for "White woman", reflecting the four individual snow-capped peaks which depict the head, chest, knees and feet of a sleeping female when seen from east or west.
Iztaccíhuatl lies to the north of Popocatépetl, to which it is connected by the high altitude Paso de Cortés.

Most of the time you can see Popocatépetl erupt during the climb.


Trip plan

We will pick you up at the destination of your choice (usually Mexico City International Airport or hotel) and transport you to Paso de Cortés.
Based on your choice we either spend the night in the hut or drive to the trailhead at La Joya. The climb itself is very scenic, leads through several passes, gorgeous views and non-technical terrain with a few class 3 rock moves.

After returning back to the trailhead, we will transport you back to your hotel or your next adventure.


Acclimatization

If you are coming from sea-level or area with much lower altitude, we recommend to add a few more days for acclimatization.
You can stay in Mexico City (7,382'), climb Nevado de Toluca (15,354') or Malinche (14,636').

Our team has the expertise to recommend an itinerary based on each client group's needs and create an acclimatization plan to increase your ability to summit.

Our guides are EMT trained and ready to respond to acute altitude sickness symptoms.

Activity: Two days.

Pico de Orizaba (also known as Citlaltépetl which means Star Mountainin the Náhuatl language) is the highest mountain in Mexico and the third highest in North America, after Denali of the United States and Mount Logan of Canada.



From the west it towers over the town of Tlachichuca in the form of a beautiful white cone. The glacier starts around 16,400 feet and covers the upper aspects of the mountain.


Trip plan

We will pick you up at the destination of your choice (usually Mexico City International Airport or hotel) and transport you to Tlachichuca.

Based on your choice we either spend the night in Tlachichuca at Canchola house (have dinner, good night sleep and head up to base camp after breakfast) or take jeeps and drive approximately 2 hours on 4x4 road to Piedra Grande Hut Base Camp that is located at an elevation of 4,270 m (14,010 ft) above sea level.
Our guides will take you on a short acclimatization hike above 15,000 ft while our crew cooks fresh dinner to be ready upon your return.
The next day we get up early (around 1 AM), eat breakfast and start climbing.

Based on the actual conditions, our guides will pick the best route through the labyrinth and on to the glacier. After summiting, we return back to the base camp, where a warm lunch will be ready. After a little rest, we will take the jeeps and head back to Tlachichuca.

You will have a choice to stay at Canchola house one more night or we can transport you back to your hotel (or your next adventure).
