As part of an ongoing project to improve the experience for visitors hiking Victoria Peak, and ensure all the necessary rules, regulations and safety precautions are in place and being followed, BAS has created a new Victoria Peak Hiking Guideline, which was debuted to tour guides last week.

A group of specialist Victoria Peak tour guides joined BAS and representatives from Belize Tourism Board in Maya Center for an introduction to the new guide, and a presentation on the rules surrounding tour guide and tour operator licensing through BTB.

Taking feedback from the guides on board, the new Hiking Guideline will be made available to the public ahead of the opening of the Victoria Peak hiking season in February 2022.

Thanks to Julio Saqui for hosting the workshop; this project was supported by European Commission - DG DevCo EuropeAid and OACPS Secretariat - Secrétariat OEACP under the BIOPAMA project
