Active Tourism Center „EŽI” loves people. We love to make people happy. Moreover, we love
to be there when people grow. We create a room, sometimes called a playground, a place
where you can play in the best sense. Watch, study, and see something new in yourself. Let
yourself be yourself, and ultimately do more than you`d imagined you could do. Our
programmes have been growing with us for 20 years, and we have been meeting regularly
with our Via Experientia European colleagues and partners to enrich our knowledge about
the power of adventure and experience its revelations in our own lifes – to learn something
new and, sometimes together, lead an international programme.
You already know everything. We`ll just give you a chance to hear it!

Kristīne Vilcāne. The real life power is hidden behind a simple and wide-known truth: in a healthy body, healthy body healthy mind! The mind and the body of the human being is so intertwined, that its impossible to see them as separate from one another. Exactly because of this I use this approach that I use in my coaching sessions, hikes and self-development events. Furthermore I’m convinced, that new knowledge, findings and experience is far more long lasting if they come easily- through a game, an adventure, a little bit of adrenaline, movement and being in nature.
I am an author of multiple books and games (www.52pakapieni.lv), development coach and a hike enthusiast and adventure therapy is an amazing opportunity to combine all three areas, that are so important in my personal life- the grand power of nature, the development process and the joy of games.
