A Unique Story

They are part of the Sierra Gorda Alliance, a group of organisations dedicated to preserving and conserving the natural beauty and diversity of the Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve. As part of their mission, Sierra Gorda Ecotours was created as a means of responsibly showcasing the Reserve, while also creating sustainable economic opportunities for the hundreds of impoverished communities who call the Sierra Gorda home.
The Sierra Gorda Alliance is lead by Grupo Ecológico Sierra Gorda, that has been working in the area for the last 30 years.

Community Connection

They are supporting a network of “small-footprint” microenterprises that produce and sell local ceramic, embroidery and organic food products. These small businesses now have access to a growing tourism market, providing them with a local and sustainable employment option.

Environmental Engagement

Sierra Gorda Ecotours also works to ensure that their tours have a minimal impact on the environment, and partners with local communities to ensure they use locally-sourced and sustainable materials wherever possible. Through the Alliance, they are supporting environmental education and conservation programs to minimize human impact on the Reserve.
