Don’t miss hiking in the Sierra Norte region of Oaxaca. Its vast territory has many trails of different levels, we will choose our favorite one to offer you in this full-day experience that will be the highlight of your trip. The Camino Real, a 18 km (11 miles) hike along an ancient trail that connects two towns that belong to these beautiful mountains. In pre-Hispanic times, Mesoamerica was connected by commerce routes, and one of these routes connected the Gulf of Mexico to the Pacific, via Oaxaca. This path was part of that route. You will feel the history as you walk the trail; the ancient vegetation, the mystic moss, and the old abandoned shacks will make you feel like traveling back in time.
The Camino Real hike is a great way to experience the ancient vegetation of the Oaxaca region, it is like visiting a type of forest you didn’t know existed. One of the most spectacular stops of the tour is our refreshing break at the river, where you can enjoy a revitalizing swim in its crystal clear waters. Don’t worry if you prefer to stay on the shore, as swimming in the river is completely optional due to its freezing temperatures.Connecting with the local community is an integral part of this experience. Therefore, we work with local guides and individuals throughout the day.
The hike finishes at the Cerro del Jaguar (Jaguar Mountain), for a beautiful sunset and an opportunity to contemplate this Sacred space. Join us on this epic experience that also includes exquisite food that will fuel you throughout this journey.
