We believe that walking achieves the reunion between nature and national identity. A walk through nature gets you closer to real sensations. Walking makes it possible to discover new life forms, people’s warmth, geological formations, and the magnificent strength of wind. We use the beat of silence for an experience that changes and transforms the relationship we have with life.
We were students of the Champagnat School, our first crossings and mountain excursions. It was at this time when we visited for the first time the parks near Bogotá. The Chingaza, Sumapaz and Iguaque Parks stand out.
We started our first high mountain routes in the Sierra Nevada del Cocuy, Guicán and Chita. First excursions through the Parque de los Nevados.
We joined the school as mountaineers.
The Champagnat School prepares its PEI based on environmental education. Already the school had more than two decades with environmental training and from this year the walks are made official as part of the pedagogical project. Caminantes del Retorno is the first generation of guides that accompanies the project for 10 years.
Caminantes del Retorno takes the idea to Colegio Champagnat to celebrate the Mountain Week. We accompanied the event until 2006.
Caminantes del Retorno works with stratum 1 and 2 schools contributing their experience in nature tours. Routes are designed and 50 districts schools are taken to walk through the most beautiful landscapes of the Bogotá savanna.
Caminantes del Retorno works on environmental education projects through outings to nature with the Secretary of Environment (DAMA at that time) Botanical Garden and local mayors of Bogotá.
