Safety

Travel with the only agency in Chapada Diamantina certified by the ISO 21.101

Activities in natural environments always offer risks and that´s why without safety measures adventure sports and tourism cannot be made.

The Brazilian Regulation was created with the purpose of attesting to the national and international market quality, the safety and sustainability of the services offered by Brazilian companies and to help the client that is looking for these services to easily identify the best company for its needs. These norms indicate the best practices and what companies should do to meet the new requirements and orientations of the law.

The program Safety Adventure was created on a great conjunct action between the Ministry of Tourism and the National SEBRAE. This program is focused on orienting the companies to adopt risk management practices and companies best practices as a whole, guaranteeing that they would be prepared on the future to get the Inmetro certification (the most know quality certifying organism in Brazil).

IMPORTANT

  • Drink water – always keep hydrated during the tours and try to drink 2 liters of water per day.
  • Medical evaluation – If you don´t practice physical activity regularly, look for a doctor to make a physical evaluation. Respect your limits.
  • Pregnant women – It is one of the most important phases of life, so we suggest avoiding the most intense physical activities and doing more light activities.
