Extreme Sports With OLA, important notes on safety. Extreme sports are close to the heart of OLA. The founders are all adventurer´s at heart, and we set this company up to take us on expeditions all over Ecuador. We know only to well, that everyday life in Ecuador can be an extreme sport, (try opening a bank account in Ecuador for example)! We have all lived and worked here for years, unlike many of the international companies who have never set foot on Ecuadorian soil, let alone tried an extreme sport. All OLA staff enjoy high doses of adrenalin, but like to live to see another day!! We take safety very seriously. We´ve all heard stories about lapse or absent safety standards in third world countries, Ecuador is no different. OLA staff are constantly amazed at the lack of safety standards of some of the companies operating in Ecuador, frankly, it scares us! All OLA guides have been trained in the UK to a high standard to teach and instruct a range of extreme sports, we come from a culture where safety is as important as fun. This means that you can trust us to only use companies that we know have a good safety record, and high standard or equipment, these are companies we have used ourselves, for tour own recreation and fun. Whatever your extreme sport we have a tried and personally tested optionfor you ...
Remember its an adventure not a tour!
