Dining Tent:

We use dining tents made of waterproof and cold-resistant materials having two side doors. Their capacity is 16 persons.We choose our tent thinking about one of the most important steps for any camper. We offer you an exclusive, safety and comfortable tent, where we will enjoy our delicious dishes during our adventures.Advantages of our dining tent 

  • They are lighter 
  • They preserve the temperature better if they have double ceiling to the floor Because of their shape, they offer less resistance to the wind (they move less when there is a lot of wind)
  • They are waterproof 
  • They are cleaned more easily 
  • Do not require a completely level ground or all the winds set to stand and without getting wet inside 
  • They support more rustic deals (special for boys and preteens who do not care much things) 
  • The tent is taller and more comfortable for those who are tall, etc. 
  • They can be fitted antecarpas or eaves Its floor is more resistant, and its general construction too (it is quite difficult to tear, for example, by wind) 
  • Their parantes are stronger and more resistant

Toilet Tent:

Our bathroom facilities are safe and sanitary and ready to be used wherever it is necessary. We use the Cleanwaste Complete GO toilet system providing you with privacy and safety! Moreover, we use biodegradable fillings that contribute to our eco-friendly approach!! If you are planning a trek, hike or some outside tours, don't worry about it, our Toiled Tent has a clean interiors, is climate controlled, ecofriendly and very confortable. 


Sleeping Bags:

We use only feather sleeping bags that are suitable up to minus 16°C. This means you do not need to be worry about cold as temparature at night at each trek reaches just up to 0°C (maximum -5°C)!! How we choose our sleeping bag? There are 3 important points that we keep in mind when we choose our sleeping bags : 

  • The temperature range: it is the temperature at which the sleeping will provide a thermal support in the place that is camping. Some important questions to ask are: where will we go? Regularly in what climate or temperature does camping ?. 
  • The weight: The weight in the camping equipment is an important variable, since depending on the activity, you will need to load the weight of the equipment, and the lighter will be more convenient. 
  • The volume of packaging: The volume is also important because when the sleeping is very compact, it will allow to save space in the backpack, taking advantage of the extra space for other things. 
For these reasons rest assured a comfortable stay that will not disturb your sleep hours

Therm - A - Rest Mattresses:

We provide with inflatable mattresses of the brand Therm-A-Rest. The mattresses are 3 cm heigh that will ensure you a sufficient isolation from the cold earth! Our therm Mattresses are durable, confortable and lightweight. They do not absorb moisture and there is no risk of puncturing it. Thanks to the foam inside they feel more stable than other mats and are more comfortable and compact than foam. They offer good insulation, are easy to inflate and can be adjusted to the degree of comfort. They have a very compact volume of transport, can adjust to taste the degree of padding and to have a greater thickness irregularities of the terrain are not major problem.
