This is how we like to work and enjoy every activity

 

We work only with 4×4 vehicles equipped for the mountains. (comfortable and with great capacity for mountain trails).

 

We work with groups that, in general, do not exceed six people per outing (which helps us to provide a more personalized service, in which a more familiar and concentrated atmosphere is generated).

 

Allmountain is certified by Sernatur (Certification of Tourist Guides; Certification in Adventure Tourism, sub-areas of: High Mountain, hiking, trekking, climbing) and is currently registered in the Registry of Tourism Service Providers of the same institution.

 

Our guides are people with experience in the field and have the required certifications to work in these activities (certifications that are also being updated), such as: Wilderness First Responder (WFR) Certification.

 

In each activity, we privilege the provision of a sustainable service: we use recyclable and organic products, we promote the principles of NDR (Leave No Trace), we promote local tourism, etc.

 

If you want to participate in a trekking or expedition and you do not have the technical equipment to do so, Allmountain includes them in each activity (if required). Example: tent, crampons, ice axe, helmet, etc.


We are committed to sustainable and sustainable tourism

 

In every trekking, expedition, mountain tour or climbing trip, we bet on one:

 

Cultural Sustainability:

Souvenirs from local artisans: We visit cultural centers, museums, craft fairs in order to promote the consumption of products from local communities and for our customers to interact with them to get a complete experience of the local community and their customs, food and so on.

 

Ecological Sustainability:

We use soaps and natural cleaning products that do not pollute the soil and water of the places we visit.

We use glass containers and after each activity we separate and recycle the garbage produced during our outings.

We try to clean the places we visit or bring the garbage we find.

 

Energy Sustainability:

Solar battery chargers: We use solar battery chargers to charge our cell phones, cameras and other electronic items.
