The Volcano Adventure Guide: Excellent information and background for anyone wishing to visit active volcanoes safely and enjoyably. The book presents guidelines to visiting 42 different volcanoes around the world.
Jocotitlán volcano is an isolated stratovolcano located 60 km WNW of Mexico City and 50 km N of of Toluca volcano. It rises about 1300 m above the Toluca plain and has a large horse-shoe shaped escarpment open to the NE, which formed because of gravitational flank collapse, similar to Mt Etna's Valle del Bove.
Jocotitlán volcano belongs to the Trans Mexican Volcanic Belt, which extends in W-E direction over 1500 km from the Pacific Coast to the Gulf of Mexico.
The latest known eruption occurred about 700 years ago and produced block-and-ash flows and pyroclastic surges.
Types of tours: We offer a broad variety of tours to volcanic areas: volcano expeditions and specials, discovery tours with hiking, photography, nature and culture, pilot tours and private custom tours.
Exploring the unknown: We sometimes invite you to "test" new itineraries or destinations with us. Such trips are a reduced cost and require a higher degree of flexibility, but often offer a great deal of adventure.
Climbing Stromboli volcano: Stromboli provides one of the most remarkable opportunities to watch volcanic eruptions from close: a natural ridge located 150 m above the active vents. A classic and all-time favorite tour by anyone interested in seeing active volcanoes!
