Upcoming Events

  • Aito village lies on four hills: "Jabal Aito (El Aren), El Alama, Dnit, and Kanissa Hill. It is one of the first villages in Casa Zgharta.

    The name of Aito is translated as' Summer Resort "in Syriac, in reference to its location on an elevation relatively close to the coast.
    Aito is famous for its horn-like structure cut into rocks, known as the Qarn (Horn) of Aito.
    Aito's landscape is rocky, with forests of trees growing between the rocks. The town has some old ruins, such as an old tower and a temple. Above the temple stands the Monastery of Saint Simon (Al Amoudi) indicating that this land was a Phoenician place of worship.
  • The Shuane Lake is located on the river bank of the Ibrahim River, at the north side of Jabal Moussa Reserve. This reserve extends over a large area and offers exquisite views as well as the special flora and fauna that cover about 6,500 hectares. This lake is, by far, one of the most beautiful places in Lebanon.

    As always there will be 2 levels; A hard and easy level:
    Level 6 (Hard): we will start by going up a steep hill to “Ibri “village then we will proceed downwards from the other side to the Shuane Lake. The trail is composed of 10 km of steep uphill and downhill.

    Level 3 (Easy): we will head out directly to the Lake where they can do a little bit of swimming and take plenty of photos.
  • Karm El Mohr is a small village situated in the Kaza of Donniyeh in North Lebanon.

    There is no apparent reason behind the name of this village. Most probably, its name goes back to marriage endowment (Mohr = endowment) and its vineyards (Karm= vineyard), which were considered the bride’s endowment, which resulted in its name Karm El Mohr. Another possibility goes to the fact that a guy from the Mohr family used to own most of the vineyards in the village.

    Karm Al Mohr is known for its abundant springs of fresh water. You can fill up your water bottles several times during the hike.

    Daraya is also a small and beautiful village in the north. Agriculture is the main activity of the town.
  • Come and experience the pleasant moments of hiking at the coast, while watching the beautiful summer sunset.
    This hike is a unique one, blending together the beauty of nature and historical ruins.

    We will start our hike from Horshieh, where a very cozy path among olive trees will lead us to a small church called Saidet el Khrayeb. We will then continue among the olive trees until we start seeing the sea. The track will then lead to Anfeh, an old village rich in ruins and caves.

    There, you will visit a very old Byzantine church among other historical monuments. The Citadel of Anfeh will be an important stopover in our program.

About Us

About Us

Vamos Todos is an ecotourism NGO that promotes and encourages the love of nature amongst its members, thus seeing life through a new perspective.

The name Vamos Todos, which means "Let's go all together" was chosen to reflect the spirit of our club, where you can participate “in a different way, in a better way”, which is also our slogan, in any of the multitude of activities which will be organized for you, with one major goal in mind: HAVING A GREAT TIME.

The club was founded in September 2006, by Mark Aoun, a Lebanese guy who has been hiking for more than 20 years, and has been all over Lebanon as well as some other countries. He would like to share with you his love for nature and life, introducing you to the magnificent place which is our home country.

Our success goes to a professional team who gave from their heart to ensure this NGO’s success. We cannot omit mentioning those who were with Vamos Todos as of the beginning, namely: Alba Wardini who is the heart of Vamos Todos and Tania Charabati. We were one team at the launch of VT!

Special thanks to the professional guides, particularly Tony Fallakha and Elie Saade, who gave and are still giving so much for VT.

We, at Vamos Todos, plan to help you enjoy every single moment you spend with us by offering you a variety of social events, outdoor adventures, sports activities, overseas trips and unusual experiences which will whisk you away for a day or two from your daily routine, bringing you back happy, refreshed and ready to confront another tiring week of work.
