Slow Travel

per person

Nowadays it is very important to put your hands in a formal & experienced company that will design an unforgettable trip that will be avoiding masses and exploring nature & local traditions following the concept of Slow Travel. This concept is based in reaching out to the best we have to offer, getting closer to local people and avoiding masses that will only expose you to a higher number of people instead of searching for the true that is in the area.
