Sandra and Team

I'm from Tenerife and ever since I could remember I've had a passion for the my island, its environment and its sustainability. Teaching people the importance of respecting nature and the different areas when visiting a location.  It's important that we all value the environment and work to protect the natural landscapes in the destination. Another passion of mine is trekking and the outdoors. And a few years ago, I actually worked as a mountain guide in Germany, adventuring and showcasing the beauty of the rural parts of the country . In my spare time, I'm always lacing up my hiking boots to head out on a new adventure. From the mountainous regions in Tenerife to the German countryside, right through Europe, and a short stint in South America, I have hiked and trekked. In any destination, if there are rocky hills and steep mountains to be explored, they've got my name all over them. Being from Tenerife, I know this island has so much more to offer than the main, crowded tourist hotspots. I wanted to showcase the traditional part of the island. The nature, the mountains, the volcanoes, anything away from the crowds. We always make sure the experiences we offer are fully sustainable and ethical. Working to protect the environment, so giving tourists an amazing experience whilst respecting nature and the local people at the same time.
