What happens if I travel alone?
No problem, an alternative is to sign up for an already organized trip, although our rates are based on double rooms so you will have to be willing to share with someone else part of your transfers and excursions, always if you prefer a simple room you must pay the difference.
Another alternative is to hire a completely private trip for you, but this will have an extra charge depending on the location and how extensive your trip is.

We travel with a maximum of 8 passengers in our outdoor programs to guarantee a personalized service, however, if you plan to travel in a classic program you will generally share the excursions with other people, this number can go between 2 to 10 people depending on the geographical location and the date of your trip.

Our trips are divided into Classic and Outdoors.
The Classic Programs are designed for all types of people who like to know the traditions of our country, the tours are making mainly by vehicle and the places where we must walk are easily accessible so you can enjoy as much as possible.
The Outdoors Programs offer a greater degree of difficulty, you must understand that the Outdoors sense is already far from the cities in which we must walk and load our equipment, the difficulty of the program depends on the trip you choose, the date and your physical condition but neglect that we happy will help you choose what is best for you and your time.
