We only use vehicles in excellent working conditions. The type of transport we use varies according to road conditions and the number of people on the trip. We use a 4X4 or a minivan to transport our customers to the start/finish of their trip.
We provide plenty of varied, healthy, high-energy, good-quality food, which is ideal for rigorous activity.
We specialize in designing personalized trips and courses that involve activities such as mountaineering, trekking, rock and ice climbing, and jungle expeditions. We have 12 years of experience leading trips throughout South America. Private trips can also be arranged, often for little more than our regularly scheduled departures. Please contact us if you have any questions regarding customized departures or private guiding.
We have a perfect safety record. We have not had any injuries or accidents in 12 years of operations. Your safety is our highest priority. We were the first company to carry satellite phones on all of our trips and continue to do so. We always carry a group medical kit including a pulse oximeter and radio VHF.
We care deeply about the environments that we travel to and the communities we encounter. We try to minimize the impact of our presence, through an understanding that the places we visit are someone else’s home and that we should leave them as we would like to find them. We want local communities to benefit from our visit. We run all our trips in as responsible manner as possible, socially, culturally, economically and environmentally.
We guarantee that you will experience the trip of a lifetime in comfort and safety.
