“We did romantic night hiking under the moonlight, saw the best mountain views while leaning on the steep rocks, enjoyed cooking and gaming as a close team, and pushed ourselves beyond our limits on rocks and water with our professional and inspiring guides. I can not tell of a similar experience like this trip before and I believe it will always be one of the most special trips ever.”
