walk & travel
"explore the world at a pedestrian pace"
is the inspiration of our weekly North Vancouver, Canada walking group WALKSTARS. Members asked us to organize a holiday with a healthy amount of time walking, exploring the world at a pedestrian pace, to give us time to notice the small details, take pictures and create memories with friends old and new.
We started in Mexico with our friend, Alberto Morales, guide extraordinaire and owner of One Percent Travel: Rare & Unique Experiences. The name says it all. His deep love of Mexico and his thorough knowledge of history, natural & urban environments and local cuisine, helps him develop unique tours, taking in out-of-the-way spots that big groups just don't get to visit.
Together we want to develop a travel experience for you that offers new experiences, value, comfort, camaraderie and safety - an adventure you can cherish.
Our first adventure in November 2018 went so well that we are planning more!

Who can participate?
Just like our weekly walking group, our travel experiences are open to new members. All you need is a desire to do some walking, experience the outdoors and meet new friends. Friends and family of Walkstar members are welcome.
The walking level will be moderate. Participating walkers should be able to continuously walk 8 km (2 - 3 hours) in warm/hot weather, sometimes on uneven terrain.
We assist solo travellers locate roommates and no one is left alone during leisure times unless they want to be.
