Tour description

Today, you will be picked up from your hotel in Mexico City to begin your adventure to the top of the breathtaking volcano “Nevado de Toluca”. Approximately 22 km from Toluca, the Nevado de Toluca volcano which is sometimes called Xinantécatl is the fourth highest in Mexico at 4680m with spectacular crater lakes and a wide summit spanning 1.5km. From the base camp – Parque de los Venados you will begin your ascent and after about 3-4 hours of hiking you will reach the summit and will be rewarded with a breathtaking panoramic view over the region. With a little luck and clear weather you can even see the enormous Popcatépetl volcano in the distance. Explore the unique landscape of the summit and after a sufficient break begin your descent. Afterwards you will be returned to your hotel, the bus station or the airport in Mexico City.
