Hiking Conduct Code


Responsible Travel statement

As clearly stated in our Responsible Travel statement, we do believe that tourism is a force for good and that travel is a privilege. Hiking, nevertheless, deserves its own Conduct Code as we are immersing in wild and natural areas and, hence, we should double our efforts.
Everyone wants to enjoy the outdoors in a safe, pleasant and clean way. It is up to all of us to make it possible.
We hope you may follow these rules even alone, but when hiking with us, we observe and ask you to observe, the following rules:

Follow your guide´s indications at all times.
Be informed about appropriate regulations to comply with. Ask us if necessary.
Plan and prepare yourself ahead about the terrain, weather and safety. Ask us if necessary.
Always take care of your garbage. Leave nothing behind.
Be extremely watchful with fire, cigarettes and any source that can cause problems.
Do not pick plants.
Don´t harass animals.
Respect private property and the privacy of locals.
Do not scream or talk quite loud in the presence of other hikers.
Respect and preserve all the signage.
Do not walk alone or fall behind or ahead despite your guide´s indications and never lose visual contact with the group.
Take note and communicate problems in the trails. Ask us if necessary.
Be sure to have the correct information on the trail distance and difficulty. Ask us if necessary.
If not provided by us, dully confirmed, take your own water and snacks. Use a reusable water bottle.
Use appropriate clothes and shoes. Ask us if necessary.
Take your phone for emergencies. But have it silent or vibrating not to disturb others.
If you want to rest a little, ask your guide and clear the path for other hikers outside of our group.
Go to the bathroom before the hike or in appropriate places, if they exist. Avoid “going wild”.

Be an active guardian!

Adventure awaits!
