ENVIROTREK IS CATCHING ON!
Since its inception in 2009, Envirotrek has grown into a 6 event series across 4 countries.
We are pleased to announce that it will expand again in 2012!
The 2011 season attracted a strong crowd at both Mayrhofen, Austria and Samoens, France. Of the other 4 new events, 2 were hampered with unusually heavy rain which meant that only the ‘die-hards’ were enthusiastic. These events proved to collect the most rubbish we have seen to date. Over 200 participants attended the Event Series and tonnes of rubbish was removed. Overall the clean-up’s had a big impact on the local areas.
The hands-on aspect of the event gives both locals and tourists an insight into behaviour of others which makes a deep impact. The stench and filth of some of the areas will have a lasting impact on those cleaning up. A great way to really ensure an appreciation for these unique mountain areas. Local guides also passed on their knowledge to the tourists offering a much deeper holiday experience.
It’s time to enjoy the mountains! Of course the adventurous part of the day is a highlight and why not? Rafting, mountain biking, via ferrata, tree climbing, ropes courses, archery and canoeing were all successful activities and lots of fun for all!
Thanks to KEEN footwear for making this event series possible, as well as all the local partners and of course the participants. See you again in 2012!
