Linked to ecotourism and the sustainable rural livelihood since its earliest days, SILVESTRES was created with the aim of promoting tourism in contact with Nature in La Rioja, as a leisure and cultural travel alternative.
We are the first company specialised in offering environmental interpretation routes and guided activities in La Rioja’s natural environment.
Our activities are suitable for everyone and take place mainly around the Oja Valley area, in the surroundings of the renowned town of Ezcaray, at the foot of the Sierra de la Demanda.
For that reason, all our work takes place outdoors, in a healthy and extraordinarily well-preserved environment, harmoniously combining hiking and educational activities on nature.
Our main coordinator is Juan. He is a Forest Engineering graduate and has also completed on Natural Scenic Resources Management and Organisation Vocational Education. His studies have specialised in the botanical and the applied forest mycology branches. Additionally, he has wandered the mountains and valleys of Ezcaray from a very early age and knows them like the back of his hand.
The company is in possession of a municipal activity licence and complies with all requirements under the regional legislation regarding tourism and the environment. It is also registered under La Rioja’s Touristic Providers Service TA-LR-28.
Also, to guarantee the safety of all our customers, the company has permanent coverage of Civil Responsibility and Accident insurance.
