About Us

Our Philosophy

We understand the need to cater to your experience and comfort level.

We meet you where you're at -- offering a full-range of hiking levels. Every week/weekend during the cooler months we lead hikes for groups of 10-20 people in the mountains of the UAE and Oman. For beginners, we offer a great introduction into the world of trekking and mountaineering which eventually leads them to join expeditions in countries with bigger, harder mountains. For those training for tougher climbs, we can recommend a training schedule.

Your Safety

We pride ourselves on upholding high safety standards by planning hikes in a responsible and organized way, ensuring the safety of our clients while trekking.

  1. Experienced and trained guides

  2. Multiple exhaustive first aid kits

  3. Satellite phones and local phones for the country we visit

  4. Multiple two-way radios that enable groups to communicate throughout the trip

  5. Wilderness First Aid trained guides.

    We do not offer trips that our guides have not been on before. Thus, our guides know the correct routes and have fail-safes if the group goes off track (radios, GPS, etc).

LOCAL EMPLOYMENT & SUPPORT STAFF

On our local and international trips we always employ members of the local community.

We believe it is a key part of being a responsible traveler and adventurer to not just take from a community, but to give back to them as well. That is why on our trips we employ locals, visit community centers and even sometimes participate in volunteer-tourism to empower locals. We participate in ongoing community development projects on our trips around the world, our clients are an integral part of supporting communities in a sustainable way.
