P.R.O.S. is a living vanguard institute that believes in hands on field based education. Our seminars consist of excellent presentations and experience based education. Class and workshop areas become the environment that surrounds us.
‘On demand’. Some search and rescue seminar, like Swift Water Rescue Technician I, will depend on the appropriate and safe weather conditions.
- We only travel in small groups. We want to spoil you. We’ll make you feel Nature’s VIP.
- From adrenaline to peace. Extreme? Zoom in body rafting through fun river currents. Relaxing? Listen to the sound of springs in the river cave and a concerto of birds in the jungle.
- Optimum service. Fantastic guides who will share your values and your passion to explore. They will be new friends that you'll want to keep for life.
You cannot find this in a guidebook. EXPLORA is about feeling… Getting drench by rain in a pristine forest; listening to birds, watching bats; floating downstream in crystal-clear water.
We can take you to a hidden paradise. It is our private Nature reserve. You will live serendipitous moments that will become your best memories.
- We follow Leave No Trace principles. Our low impact role is committed to preserve the outdoor experience for future generations.
- We recycle our disposals.
- We patronize & create exchanges with local communities.
