Let´s explore the Nevado de Toluca volcano together !!

The Nevado de Toluca is a large stratovolcano in central Mexico, located about 80 kilometres (50 mi) west of Mexico City near the city of Toluca. It is generally cited as the fourth highest of Mexico's peaks, after Pico de Orizaba, Popocatépetl and Iztaccíhuatl.

With our van/small bus we can drive up near the volcano and after a steep but nice walk of about 30 to 40 minutes we have great views on the volcano crater. There are two crater lakes on the floor of the basin that we can visit on a walk of about 1 to 1,5 hours, at about 4,200 m (13,800 ft), the larger Lago del Sol (Sun Lake) and the smaller, but deeper, Lago de la Luna (Moon Lake). If you just like to walk up to the crater to enjoy the great views that is also possible.

The trip is not too heavy, we take it slow to get ajusted to the hight; you can make the trip as heavy as you want, during this great encounter with nature.

The price is 650 Mexican Pesos and includes private transport for our group, experienced driver, experienced coordinator and explanations in Spanish and English.

IMPORTANT NOTE: sometimes the security guards don´t let us use our own van to drive up towards the start of the hike, in that case we have to use local transport with an extra cost of 100 MXN per person, not included. This local transport is sometimes bad organized / very slow, so please understand that in that case we cannot be held 100% responsible for the logistics !!!

It is important to pay at least 3/5 days before the trip, to make sure we can arrange the right transport for the right amount of people.
You can pay by making a transfer by Internet, by making a deposit of cash money in a Banamex bank or by paying with cash money in an Oxxo store.

Please send a WhatsApp to [masked] to check availability and to receive the payment information.
