Start and end of stages
Each day will remember the time of breakfast and start. Respecting the schedule is very important because it is necessary to rest between stage and stage. We will have a few hours of rest before dinner, which, together with the appropriate stretching, will allow us to be in perfect condition for the next day.

Guides and security
All our guides have the proper training to keep the group in total safety. We are in contact with local taxi and emergency telephones for any eventuality. We maintain the cohesion of the groups through walki talki teams. The guides have completed the first aid and first aid courses.
