DESCRIPTION
During 2 intense days we cover every single manner relevant to cartography, orientation and trip planning. Plan ahead from a map, making altitude profiles and estimating time and distance of your trip. For sure you will be able to plan a safer and more pleasant trip through the mountains either by day or by night.

The courses is directed to both people who love to go out for a walk and already possess basic knowledge but want to learn more and beginners that first wish to settle a good base of orientation and mapping before going out for the real. Theory and practice are just as important, for that reason many practical exercises are included so that every student can learn on its own level in the most efficient way possible.

OUR VISION

A green planet full of wilderness areas. Increasing awareness of our role within nature while our own children educate their parents. The rural environment as generator of opportunities while interpretative guides are capacitated and committed, inspiring and transmitting sustainability values.

WILDERNESS: The most intact, undisturbed wild natural areas left on our planet, those last truly wild places governed by natural processes that humans do not control and have not developed.   “The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness”,  John Muir.

NATURE CONSERVATION: The protection of natural resources and landscapes, including biodiversity of plant and animal species. Taking in account historical, cultural and spiritual heritage.   “What we are doing to the forests of the world is but a mirror reflection of what we are doing to ourselves and to one another”,  Mahatma Gandhi.

ECOTOURISM: Responsible travel to natural areas that protect the environment and improves the well-being of local people.   “Travel makes one modest. You see what a tiny place you occupy in the world”,  Gustave Flaubert.

OUR PRODUCTS: Primary or secondary education courses, nature youth camps, family experiences, survival trainings, nature expeditions, wildlife observation, profesional guide training, consultancy in nature conservation, sustainable tourism and socio-economic development.
