About Sierra Norte Expeditions

More than 100 kilometers of trails: hiking, biking, ancient culture and horseback riding, live a magical experience among the "people of the clouds" and a unique project in Mexico!

At Expediciones Sierra Norte we strive to create travel experiences for each visitor, without losing sight of the fact that the preservation of our culture and natural resources is what gives life to the project.

Our ecotourism project was conceived as a regional development model. It began in two communal properties: Pueblos Mancomunados and Ixtlán de Juárez, then this model has been adopted by more organizations in the Sierra Norte.

In Pueblos Mancomunados, tourism activity began in 1994, in the community of Benito Juárez, and then spread to all the towns that are members of the Mancomun in 1998. For its operation, it has counted on the participation of the Comisariado de Bienes Comunales, local government agencies through the Presidencies, Municipal Agencies and the General Assembly of Communal Landholders.

In 1998, it received support from the Canadian Embassy and the Commission for Environmental Cooperation to design the Nature Routes, a network of more than 100 kilometers of marked hiking and mountain biking trails linking the towns of Pueblos Mancomunados. Also that same year, the community company Expediciones Sierra Norte was created and a direct sales and promotion office was opened in the city of Oaxaca.

Our mission is "to be an initiative of intercommunity cooperation that promotes the preservation of the natural and cultural heritage of the localities through the promotion of a responsible and high quality tourism offer linked to the natural environment, traditions and customs of the people. Our four main objectives are:

Increase the capacity of community members to protect and sustainably manage their natural heritage.
To develop a responsible tourism activity in the territory of Pueblos Mancomunados that allows visitors to come into contact with the culture of the indigenous communities and with nature in a fun, safe and educational way.
Generate employment opportunities for community members.
Serve as a model for the establishment of similar programs in different indigenous communities in our country and beyond.
