IN THIS WAY WE LIKE TO WORK AND ENJOY EVERY ACTIVITY

 

We work only with 4×4 cars equipped for the mountain (comfortable and with great capacity to travel mountain roads).

 

We work with groups that generally do not exceed six people per tour (which helps us provide a more personalized service, which creates a more familiar and concentrated atmosphere).

 

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

 

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

 

In each activity, we privilege a sustainable service: we use recyclable and organic products, we promote the principles of DLT (Don’t Leave 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 it, Allmountain includes them within each activity (which requires it). Example: tent, crampons, ice ax, helmet, etc.


WE ARE COMMITTED TO SUSTAINABLE AND SUSTAINABLE ADVENTURE TOURISM

 

In each trek, Expedition, Mountain Tour or climbing outing, we do:

 

Cultural sustainability:

Souvenirs of local artisans: We visit cultural centers, museums, craft fairs in order to promote the products of local communities and for our clients to interact with them to get a complete experience of the local community and its customs, food and more.

 

Ecological Sustainability:

We use soaps and natural cleaning products that do not contaminate the ground, the water of the places we visit.

 

We prefer glass or reusable containers.

 

And, after each activity, we separate and recycle the garbage produced on 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 articles.
