You'll depart from Todos Santos at 9am and drive for approximately an hour from the ocean, through the desert, to the mountain trail head where the hike starts.
The walk begins in the selva Baja caducifolia (desert scrub) and continues through lush reserves of oak forest and pine. Your guide is a professional naturalist guide and a gifted story-teller, as well as a certified Wilderness First Responder. Hence, you will get a lot of great information about local flora, fauna and history.
The Biosphere Reserve (where you'll be hiking) was part an island off the coast of Baja some 10 million years ago, and the incredible diversity of plant and animal life of the reserve still reflects the island isolation the area once enjoyed. Over 23% of plants and 10% of animals found in the reserve are endemic to the area.
Chef Iker Algorri will pack the picnic lunches that you take on the trail and this includes delicious sandwiches and fruit. You will hike as high up as you can and still get home before dark. The return to Todos Santos is around 5pm.
