Mexico Volcanoes Expedition

Climb the third and seventh Highest Peaks in North America and Eat Like Aztec Royalty

In the heart of Mex­i­co lies a group of vol­ca­noes that have cap­tured the atten­tion of humans through­out his­to­ry. For over three hun­dred years the great Aztec Empire dom­i­nat­ed the region around our first objec­tive, 17,154-foot / 5229-meter Iztac­ci­hu­atl. Also known as Ixta” this is Mexico’s third high­est peak. Along the way you’ll enjoy care­ful­ly cho­sen places to stay and eat, putting this trip into the Moun­tain Mad­ness-style cat­e­go­ry of an eat­ing expedition!”
