During the hike we focus very much on group dynamics, and it’s a rule of thumb that nobody will be left behind. We’re all links in the hiking chain and nobody is more or less important than anybody else… For every hike, i will be the last one to leave the venue in order to be sure that everybody made it out safely. Creating an adventurous but most of all a safe hiking experience is our goal.
