Discover the rugged beauty of Mexico’s western volcanoes on this amazing day hike to the summit of the seventh tallest mountain in the country! The guided program offers an in-depth look at the volcanoes in Jalisco and Colima while reaching the peak of Nevado de Colima and looking out across the landscape towards Volcan de Fuego and Ciudad Guzman!

Nevado de Colima, also known as Zapotepetl, is the seventh highest mountain in Mexico, reaching 4,340 meters above sea level. It belongs to the Colima Volcanic Complex that includes the Volcan de Fuego, an extremely active volcano with many recent eruptions. Located in a national park of the same name, this intriguing volcano is southwest of Ciudad Guzman, just over 150 kilometers south of Guadalajara.

Your compelling hiking program is designed to give you a fulfilling trek through the unique flora and fauna of a rare side of Mexico, putting you front and center to the daunting Volcan de Fuego. We will hike through pine forests and rugged terrain to the summit of Nevado de Colima, learning valuable information about the volcano itself and the history of its activity.

You can watch the environment change with the altitude, viewing ash deposits from previous eruptions while passing through the various ecosystems. Amazingly enough, one of the striking features you will notice is the abundance of bird and flower species while trekking towards the top. Once you have made it to the summit, you can look out at the Volcan de Fuego just five kilometers away.

This is a perfect blend of activity and instruction, allowing you a sustained path to the top with plenty of instruction along the way. This is a full immersion into a part of Mexico not often seen, giving you a unique perspective on some of the most exciting volcanoes in North America.

Our goal is to spend a majority of the day on the mountain, though less time actually trekking, so the program is open to anyone with a general fitness level. You just need to bring your passion for hiking and the outdoors to enjoy this trip. I will ensure we have a safe, fulfilling, and all-around fun time exploring the many alluring features of Nevado de Colima.

Book this incredible day hike to Nevado de Colima NOW and reach the summit of the seventh tallest mountain in Mexico and one of the most extraordinary in all of North America!

If you want a change of pace, we can also try a day hike in the Bosque de la Canada de Contreras near Mexico City!

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.

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.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard
