The adventure begins with our two hour drive to the starting location. The drive is astoundingly beautiful with spectacular views ash mountains, waterfalls and volcanos in every direction.

Regardless of your skill level, there will be something for you to enjoy and due to the small nature of our groups, the guide will have plenty of time to work with you on your techniques as well as teach you new skills.
