Escape the hustle and bustle of Mexico City and discover the rural side of Mexico, with a hike up the Ixtaccihuatl Volcano, one of the country's highest volcanoes which currently lies dormant! This hike offers an incredible view over the valley.

Your journey will begin at the crack of dawn, as you travel to the town of La Joya, which is located at the foot of the volcano. From there, reach Cortes' Passage, which is located at more than 3,700 meters above sea level, by minibus. The passage takes it's name from Hernando Cortes, the 16th century conquistador. This route will allow visitors to reach the Popocatepetl and Ixtaccihuatl volcanoes.

From here, the tour is on foot. There are paths for beginners, weekend hikers, and professionals. Your group will take an intermediate level hike so that both beginners and professionals can enjoy it.

As the tour comes up the Ixtaccihuatl's summit, the third highest in Mexico, enjoy the magestic view of it's active neihbor, Popocatepetl. This tour will leave you with unforgettable views of the Mexican landscape, all thanks to a little exercise!
