Alvaro and his team of guides will help you up 4 Mexican summits in 12 days: Nevado de Toluca, Pico de Orizaba, Iztaccihuatl and La Malinche!


Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt

12 Days

All year




* Conquer four of the most important volcanoes in Mexico.

* Learn about the unique Mexican culture.

* Improve your mountaineering skills with the help of a local guide.


This 12- day expedition offers you the chance to explore four amazing Mexican summits: Nevado de Toluca (4,680 m), Iztaccíhuatl (5,230m), La Malinche (4,461 m) and Pico de Orizaba (5,636 m), the highest mountain in Mexico!

These ancient volcanoes have embellished  the exotic Mexican history and culture for thousands of years. Over the course of twelve days, we’ll explore these four major summits while discovering the various myths that explain their existence.

Our starting point will be either from Mexico City or Puebla City. From there, we’ll go to the Nevado de Toluca base camp and after finishing with our first ascent, we’ll continue with La Malinche. Then, we’ll ascend Iztaccihuatl. Once we have successfully completed ascending our three first volcanoes, we’ll end the trip by going up Pico de Orizaba, the crown jewel of the Mexican Volcanoes. For a more detailed description of the trip, take a look at the itinerary below!

I will safely guide you and make sure participants complete this program in the best possible conditions all the way from Nevado de Toluca, the 4th highest mountain, to Pico de Orizaba, the highest and most emblematic peak in Mexico. Moreover, keep in mind that this program’s length can be reduced according to each participant’s physical condition. Even though no prior mountaineering experience is required, all climbers need to be physically fit.
