Due to the elevated activity of Popocatépetl volcano in spring 2019, we offer a Volcano Special from 15-20 April:
We have rented a house near the charming town of Amecameca, about 12 km NW from the summit. Already with good views from this place, we will use it for the 5 days / nights as our base for various excursions to set up photography camps at the best available viewpoints.
There is no fixed day-to-day schedule,- this will be decided upon on location.
The tour is for you if you're interested in volcano photography and have a lot of patience as intervals between events are typically several hours to even days!
  • get to know one of the world's most active and famous volcanoes
  • chances to see large explosions
  • stay in a very beautiful location on the foothills of the volcano
