Magnificent landscapes far from the beaten track ...

We had a great day on this 14 kilometer hike along the west coast. What we liked during this hike: 1) the guide: André is an excellent reassuring and attentive guide; 2) meeting no one on the way; 3) proper organization of transfers; 4) the snacks provided and the glass offered during the departure debriefing. Do not hesitate this excursion offers excellent value for money!

Absolutely fantastic hike! Natasha was very knowledgeable of the area, the history of secret beaches, local vegetation as well as being super lovely! Beautiful vast views of oceans and cliffs with great company.. What more could you want!

It was a wonderful ride. I recommend 100%. I was a little hesitant to score, because it's winter and it's cold, but I took a chance. Worth it! Beautiful beaches, small caves and we saw dolphins…;)
