About us

o-nas-ikonka

BluEmu is primarily a team. A group of people who devoted their lives to the mountains: mountaineering, trekking and other forms of mountain activities, as well as traveling in less-known corners of the world. People who constantly improve their skills, also during their own expeditions on the highest and most difficult peaks of the world. We have been operating as a guiding company on the market since 2011. However, the idea of sharing our mountain passion with others had emerged much earlier. Since more than 10 years we had been organizing and participating in our own expeditions, which have become a base of knowledge and experience for our guiding services.

We work with individual clients, as well as with companies. We focus on mountain trips, from easy treks to climbing seventhousanders. Our offer is designed for people who would like to travel in small group, under the supervision of experienced and competent leaders. We pay attention to developing our trip members’ fitness and technical skills by proposing them participation in the increasingly serious expeditions.

We also offer the range of courses, trainings and workshops, which we widen from year to year. They provide knowledge and skills in various fields, which enable our courses and trips members’ to take more and more difficult challenges under our supervision and later also independently.
