Hi everyone! I´m Txus Ruiz de Erentxun, White water´s and mountain guide.
I have been working as a guide for more than 20 years. I began in Murillo de Gallego, creating there UR, a renowned company of adventures activities. Since then, I travelled, because of my adventurous spirit, around the world exploring different rivers and mountains. Finally we created Ur Nomade an adventure travel and expeditions agency. We also work training people and rescuing in white waters.+
I have always though you should enjoy your work and if not, that it is better to continue looking for your prefect job. During my trip to Nepal in the 90´s I worked with exceptional rafting and trekking companies and thanks to them I learnt all about my job; the implication, the responsibility, the effort, the satisfaction offered etc. and I decided that this was what I really wanted to do.
I love adventures trips, maybe, due to my passion for books and films in which I knew about fantastic expeditions. I always remember Leo Dickinson´s decent of the river Duth Kosi in 1976. Later on I will have the opportunity to carry out that expedition for the program “Al filo de lo impossible” with Antxon Arza. I fulfilled a wish and I want to help you to reach yours.
Although our main characteristics are adventures sports, we do not have to forget that an expedition is more than that, it is also about knowing other cultures, meeting native people and knowing different lifestyles. Join us and go hiking to the Atlas Mountains from Morocco, descent the Karnali River in west-Nepal or go canoeing to the Patagonia´s wonderful rivers. We still have more, let´s go to the Alpine and Pyrenees Mountain ranges where we will enjoy rafting, kayaking, climbing or canyoning, always with our exceptional guides.
From the beginning (1990), our main objective has been to offer a quality service in the active tourism and adventure sports area. .
Nowadays Ur is known for its customers´ attention quality and reliability..
