Other team members

Irene Hervás

It is difficult to describe Irene's job as she made herself essential in many roles those past few years. Social media account manager, photographie, new tours development, bookings, etc.

In 2023 she will take the new role of assistant guide and we hope to see her taking more and more responsibilities in the team.

Kyle Singbeil

He started coming on trips to shoot in the canyons in 2018 and became our official photographer. You can book a trip with him in order to get professional shots of your adventure. He is currently working on his skills to become an assistant guide for the 2021 season.
