White water and wilderness tripping


How did you choose all destinations for your trips?
I've been to a lot of wilderness places around the world in my life. For our long trips ( Alaska, Canada, Mona) I simply picked the best of the best out of what I've seen and tried.
For short trips, the choice was quite easy, as there are no other places like Hudson River gorge or La Parguera lagoon: they are easily accessible for most of our clients and offerening so many attractions and activities with no downside at all.
Why should we go with you, and not with some other guys?
Most of our trips are unique. Even when you can find alternatives, our prices will be lower, and service - better, comare to anyone else. This is especially so with Alska and Canada trips. We can do it, because we organize our tours not during the short season, as local outfitters always do, but all year aroud. Thus, we do not rip our clients for huge profits. In fact, in many instances, our clients would not pay less if they were to organize the same trip on their own. Why so? Because of our knowledge of logistics and using our own boats and gear.
Another strong reason to go with us is next: we do it in different style. We do not think about our wilderness trips as "business first" events. We go in as a team, and we have a shared goal of having a real Adventure and seeing the beauty of unspoiled nature.
Finally, we have a lot of experience and excellent gear to make our trips safe and enjoyable.
