Questions and Answers
Powered by your travel passion!

1. How long has the business been operating and how did it start?

When the company founder was traveling in Himalaya on his single speed bike, trekking in the remote areas of Patagonia, road cycling back roads in Portugal or simply enjoying chatting with old shepherds, he realized that he would love to share this wonderful places and experiences with others. From this dream to the company we know today was a small step. When he found partners with the same motivation, the right skills and experience, they did not hesitate and founded this company. In 2006 we've became a small, but fully professional company dedicated to provide world travelers with unique experiences! Powered by your travel passion, we prepare very special road cycling, hiking and mountain biking tours all around the world. We believe these are the ways to take the most from a trip, as one can have a close contact with nature and local culture, always at a relaxed rhythm.

He has a university degree in Computer Science and a Masters in Spatial and Environmental Planning but he has spent his life avoiding turning into a computer geek. That’s why after several other entrepreneurship projects he co-founded this company - to work in what he loves to do.

When not guiding, he is lead consultant in Nature Tourism Development project in the company's Consulting department.

All of the meals were quite good. I loved Anna's and Amelia's cooking and also the night we got the bonus codfish dish. None of the meals would I rate subpar. Sharing a bottle of wine, conversation and coffee made them
all celebratory.

These hikes exceeded my expectations. You’ve introduced me to the most fascinating corners of an intriguing country with so much to offer in culture, history, ... view more architecture, and natural beauty.
