Full description

Pico de Orizaba is the highest mountain in Mexico and we have summited this incredible volcano with clients more than 120 times.

Pico de Orizaba can be climbed all year round even though high season goes from October to march/april. We normally take between 2 to 4 days to climb it depending on your acclimatization.

Need to be picked up from the airport and organize all your guides, accommodation, transport, visits to some tourist places, etc. or just want to be picked up at Puebla and climbed the mountain? we can organize the tour whatever way you want, of course we'll give you our opinion to work out a good itinerary, whether it's just to climb Pico de Orizaba or you want to do some other mountain for acclimatization like:


La Malinche

Nevado de Toluca

Sierra Negra
