* Spend a great day hike just 80 km from Mexico City


I invite you to bring your family along and join me on a great day hike around the Nevado de Toluca, an ancient extinct volcano located at about 80 kilometres from Mexico City. Its crater contains two beautiful lagoons, the Laguna de la Luna (Moon Lagoon) and the Laguna del Sol (Sun Lagoon).

The Nevado de Toluca is one of the highest peaks in Mexico. The trail reaches a breathtaking height of 4680 meters above sea level, with spectacular views over the two lagoons and over the Valley of Toluca, Ajusco Mountain and the rolling hills of Oaxaca and Veracruz.

Our hiking tour will take us about 4 hours. This program is suitable for people of all ages, even for children. You will be amazed by the beautiful colors of the Sun and Moon Lagoons, with greenish crystal blue waters.

Please note due to high altitude, temperatures are usally low around the mountain, so it’s strongly recommended to wear warm clothes for this hike. And don’t forget to bring your camera: the lagoon landscapes are truly amazing! 

So what are you waiting for? Send us a request and come discover the spectacular Nevado de Toluca landscapes! Check out our profile page for other great adventure trips and tours in Mexico!

I am very pleased with Explore-Share! This was my first international climb, and the communication and response time were great. Herbie is a very skilled guide and very efficient. The entire booking process & payment was smooth. I will definitely use Explore-Share again. Thank you.



I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
