Itzaccihuatl Volcano Climb (2 days)

Iztaccíhuatl boasts a height of 17,160 foot (5,230 meter) and is Mexico’s third highest dormant volcanic mountain located on the border between the State of Mexico and Puebla. The Nahuatl (ancient Aztec) name “Iztaccíhuatl” means “white woman”, reflecting the four individual snow-capped peaks which depict the head, chest, knees and feet of a sleeping female when seen from east or west.

This is an excellent choice for advanced climbers who want to follow the footsteps of the Aztecs to Mexico’s lowest peak containing permanent snow and glaciers. The region is rich in biodiversity as the mountain forms part of the 100,000 acre (45,000 hectares) Iztaccihuatl-Popocatepetl National Park, home to a great diversity of habitats, including mixed forests of pine, evergreen oak and alnus, as well as high mountain prairies.

Your professional guide will ensure that you both acclimatize correctly and pace your ascent in order to enjoy all the incredible views that Itza’s peak affords.
