Escape the hustle and bustle of Mexico City and hike 1 of the highest volcanoes in Central America. Reach the top of the active volcano of Iztaccíhuatl and look over the stunning Valley of Mexico. Enjoy a typical meal in a small town.

Highlights

  • Breathe in the fresh mountain air as you look over the Valley of Mexico
  • Get in touch with nature
  • Enjoy panoramic views of the valley and mountains

Description

Depart Mexico City and spend the day touring the Izta-Popo National Park. Following pickup from either of the 2 meeting points in the city, head to the foothills of Popocatépetl to start your hike up Iztaccíhuatl from the base of the dormant volcanic mountain. Take in the beautiful scenery and fresh air as you walk in a small group. Your own skill level will determine how high the hike will go, so you won't feel strained beyond your abilities. Popocatépetl is Mexico’s 2nd highest peak and part of the tour offers splendid views of the valley and village of Amecameca below. Marvel at the 3,700-meter high mountain of La Joya in the famous Paso de Cortés, named after the Spanish conquistadors who crossed it on their way to Mexico-Tenochtitlan in 1519.  Descend the mountain for a light lunch in the foothills to replenish your energy. Then, commence the return trip to Mexico City and reflect on the tranquility of the mountain and the miraculous wonder of nature.
