hikes, as there are many roads that go along
the park and hundreds of hiking paths from one side
As we organize this excursion in small groups
we can adapt the itinerary and hikes depending on the
profile of the passengers, choosing the paths that fit
better. By default, the level of difficulty of the activities
in our programs is low, having the chance to change
it for a higher level is the group asks for it.
Onboard of our OVERLAND TRUCKS, we will go to
strategics places from where we´ll start
the hikes that will allow us to get to the viewpoints
where we will have most beautiful sights of the park.

allow it, we´ll use mountain shelters. In the
