Confirmed Departures

3 March 2016 There's no need to book on a confirmed departure. I can arrange a trip on any date that suits you.

What the price includes

All land transport, hotel accommodation (bed and breakfast) 'off' the hill', all accommodation and meals 'on the hill' (hacienda and refugio accommodation), all communal equipment (crockery, pots, pans, mess tent, ropes), professional English speaking mountain guides (ratio is 1:2, Asociacion Mexicana De Guias De Montana Y Escalada). National Park fees.

The following are NOT included in the price

Lunch and dinner 'off' the hill, bar bills, laundry bills, tips, travel insurance, international flights.

Note: It is important that you avoid the Groupo de Los Cien refuge on weekends. There is only room for 25 - 30 people and it get's very busy with local climbers from Mexico City. You may not be able to find room to sleep, and it may not be safe to leave equipment behind.

The standard programme involves two 'carrys' to the high camps on Iztaccihuatl and Orizaba. You will need to shoulder all of your equipment including crampons, axe, tent (Orizaba only), sleeping bag, camping mat etc. A porter can be engaged locally, the cost is something like US$50 per person per day.
