La Capra Trek is a project that was born trying to enhance the passion, skills, dreams and the path taken up to now in life. I am Fabio Santori , an Environmental Hiking Guide associated with AIGAE (UM165 card) after a professional training course, organized by AIGAE itself in Umbria between November 2019 and July 2020.
I started walking about 15 years ago when I did my thesis, for the Degree in Communication Sciences, in Chiapas, in the Mexican south east, where since 1994 the descendants of the Maya organized in the EZLN have given birth to an extraordinary experience of autonomy and self-government.
The meeting with the indigenous peoples, the months spent with the Tojolabales between La Realidad and Rosario Rio Blanco have forever marked the direction and direction of my life. As soon as I graduated, I immediately left. From the Andes of Peru to the Plateau and central valleys of Bolivia, and then up through the Amazon to Colombia, Venezuela, Ecuador.
I decided to be an Environmental Hiking Guide because I want to help people, through experiences in Nature, to rediscover their wild side and to raise the awareness that we are all part of the great circle of the Earth ecosystem. To convey the love for our Apennines, with the hope that someone among many can decide to return to live there, thus stopping the depopulation which, combined with the constant closure of essential services, make our ancient mountains sometimes desolately abandoned and sad.
The Umbrian Marche Apennines are my starting point, my territory of existence, the land where I have been taking root for some years. But the horizons in which I would like to accompany you are wide, almost infinite. A thousand ideas hang in the head, always with the ambition to seek deep connections, to explore territories on the margins of mass tourism, to have original goals.
La Capra Trek. Excursions. Experiences. Emotions.
