With every step we have stayed true to our values of supporting local communities and development, and their affinity with the natural world means that they’ve always put sustainability at the heart of everything they do, long before it became a fashionable buzzword.

As adventurers, throughout the years we have provided those who venture with them only the top of the line equipment, setting the bar for industry standards and always making sure of being responsible in all of our activities especially against the sexual exploitation of women and children, which is why we have obtained the The Code certification.
