excursions are for groups. We work with groups of reduced
size in order to maximise the quality of attention to
each individual and be able to achieve a homogenous
group. In general we work with groups of from five to
fifteen persons, with a maximum set at twenty.
of our groups have, from the first till the last pre-established
date, one general activities coordinator, starting
on the moment of pickup on the first day of the programme.
calendar of excursions offers pre-established dates
for both Spanish and English speaking publics. Our
coordinators and guides manage both of these languages.
programmes begin in the town of reference found in
the description of each alternative. The pickup point
and time is received together with confirmation of
reservation delivered to the agency.
alternatives offer that delicate balance between adventure
and comfort. In the towns and villages our programmes
start and finish in, we offer warm, tidy, comfortable
lodgings. Generally the travellers can choose to share
a hostel room with an other of our group and of the
same gender or otherwise, when making the reservation,
can request a single or double room, which remains dependent
upon the availability of the particular option. The
condition is the same in the case of a private bathroom
when staying at a hotel. The different alternatives
available are specified in the details of each programme
given to the agencies that commercialise our products.
the places determined for spending the night far from
towns and villages because of the demands of the programme
concerned, the facilities offered are camp sites,
mountain refuges, family homes and community halls.
Hostels generally offer rooms with from four to six
single beds, a private or shared full bathroom and
bedclothes. They also offer a dining-room, a kitchen,
a refrigerator for storing foodstuffs and a games
and TV room.
Campsites are located in places providing both comfort
and safety, and generally in areas with attractive
landscapes. They are reached after a day of hiking.
In all campsites, three-person igloo tents are placed
at disposal, couples are provided with two-person
igloo tents, as is a mess-tent that is fit out with
a complete kitchen. Free campsites have no bathrooms
Each mountain refuge is different as far as its facilities
are concerned. In some cases they serve simply to
provide shelter against eventual inclement weather,
others offer minimum services such as a kitchen, a
dining-room and a dormitory space for sleeping-bags,
while yet others provide the comforts of toilets,
showers and electric light.
In many cases our itinerary leads us through hamlets
or small villages where contact with the inhabitants
and their permanent hospitality are important points.
In these situations we spend the night in family homes
or in community halls. These provide us with the minimum
facilities of a place to spread out our sleeping-bags
and a precarious toilet.
lodging in towns or villages supper is eaten in different
restaurants and public houses. There are different
menus to choose from, beverage is not included. Breakfast
is provided by the lodgings selected by the traveller.
When spending the night at campsites four generous
meals are served. During such periods of camping,
the menu does not only contemplate the tastes of the
travellers and their nutritional needs but also the
pleasures and qualities of fresh and traditional foods.
Similarly, on hikes with or without backpacks energising
foodstuffs, dried fruit, cereal bars, sweets and candies
are supplied to round off the described meals.

travellers can prepare tea with or without milk, mate,

sometimes by cakes, pies and home-made bread.
