Daily departures


The 4 Summits hike, our Signature Adventure, will lead you to conquer the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th highest summits in the Caribbean in an unforgettable 3.5-day experience. Each day will provide varied trails, including marked cross-country hikes, on your way to 4 exhilarating summits.


Our guides will welcome you at base camp in the town called La Ciénaga (1,100 m / 3,609 feet), where after a brief orientation, a review of the trip itinerary and a delicious dinner, you will sleep to the sounds of nature and the Yaque del Norte River.

After a tasty breakfast at base camp we’ll start our 19K (11.8 mi) hike. This first day we’ll reach our first summit, Pico Yaque (2,764 m / 9,068 ft.), leaving the main trail to La Compartición shelter, and walking cross-country within a well-marked 500 meters (0.31 mi) path to the summit. We will then re-enter the main trail, and continue our way to La Compartición shelter. The hike is divided as follows: 4K (2.4 mi) flat, 12K (7.5 mi) uphill and 3K (1.9 mi) downhill. When we arrive at La Compartición, a delicious meal in front of a cozy campfire and stories shared under a starlit sky will help us recover from the day’s hike.
