What you'll do

We’ll hike Nevado de Toluca, an extinct volcano and Mexico's fourth-highest peak. We’ll walk through a large forest on the way to the crater’s two lakes, Laguna de la Luna (Lake of the Moon) and Laguna del Sol (Lake of the Sun). Jagged ridges and sharp peaks along the crater rim punctuate the dramatic landscape. The park is home to 18 registered archaeological sites where sunken offerings, ceramics, and sculpted stone have been found. I’ll share insights into the region’s pre-Hispanic culture, including why this volcano and its lakes were so important to them. At the end of our trek, we’ll refuel with quesadillas and local coffee at a traditional restaurant. You’ll have the option to learn how to cook your own quesadilla, or simply relax and eat ones that have been prepared for you.

Your hosts

I’m an expert mountaineer and founder of outdoor training and adventure sports company, TORI. I’ve climbed all four of Mexico's dormant volcanoes and Argentina's Aconcagua, the highest mountain outside Asia. I've also climbed Mont Blanc, the highest mountain in the Alps, and many other peaks around the world. I'm always excited to share the thrill of hiking with others.
