Rarámuri - 'Those with light feet'

Made for the dare-it-alls, the do-ers and the dreamers.

Our Story

Edel Van Riet is a true adventurer. From a young age, the explorer in him craved for great adventures. One day, he left on a journey to explore Latin America on his own. He worked as a volunteer in Guatemala, guided hikes to volcanoes in Nicaragua, traveled through the Mexican jungle and sailed the Caribbean Sea to Colombia. A journey to remember.

One encounter would leave a deep impression on him. Whilst trekking through the high mountains of Mexico, Edel got to know a very special Indian tribe. They called themselves the Rarámuri, which literally means ‘those with light feet’. This encounter would become the start of a new adventure.
