Upcoming Events

  • We have an exciting trail planned for you, fully organized and coordinated by Vamos Todos. Our destination is Jezzine, specifically the village of Haitoura, where we will commence our hike towards the village of Roum.

    En route, we'll make stops at a charming boutique winery and explore various points of interest, including old houses, 2000-year-old olive trees, and ancient grape presses carved into the rocks.

    Our journey begins together with a tour of Haitoura village, leading us into a beautiful pine forest and onward to Kharkhrayya, a small abandoned village that extends into Maknounieh village. Next, we'll all head to Karam Winery for a brief visit.

    From there, we'll split into two groups:
    Level 3 will continue to St.
  • The Wadi of Nahr El Jawz is one of Lebanon's most beautiful valleys, boasting lush vegetation, ancient mills, archaeological sites, and historic buildings lining its riverbanks. With numerous trails to explore, we've prepared a new route for you from Tannourine to Beit Chlela.

    Along the way, you'll encounter stunning waterfalls, picturesque river views, water streams, and ancient staircases. We offer two levels of difficulty: a moderate+ 12 km hike or a more leisurely LEVEL 3 option covering approximately 7 km.

    For those opting for the easier route, there's an opportunity to relax at a riverside restaurant in Kfarhdelda while awaiting the arrival of the moderate-level hikers. After a refreshing break, we'll all return to Beirut together.
  • We are heading to 'Ayoun el Samak,' one of the most spectacular destinations in Lebanon. Situated on the banks of the 'Nahr el Bared' river, which separates 'Doniyeh' from 'Akkar' regions, 'Ayoun el Samak' presents an endless array of breathtaking and picturesque views that will leave you in awe.

    The name is derived from the numerous water sources that feed the river and create these magnificent vistas.

    The area has historically been a major attraction for many artists and singers who have chosen its beautiful surroundings as the backdrop for filming their music videos. It truly offers a hiking experience that should not be missed. We have divided our hike into two levels:

    Level 2 & 3 - This will be an easy walk along the riverbank, where we will be surrounded by trees lining the shores.
  • This time, our destination will be Akkar el Atiqa, the winner of Lebanon’s “Favorite Village” competition for 2016!

    It's important to highlight the significance of Akkar al Atiqa’s citadel or Hosn Akkar, perched on a rocky mountain between the two valleys of Akkar. Legend has it that the citadel was built by Mohrez Bin Akkar, who was killed in 864 A.D., and later occupied by the Seljuks, the Crusaders, and the Mamluks.

    Our hike will cater to two levels:
    Level 3 & 5 – starting from within the village up to the vicinity of the citadel, which is challenging to reach due to its rocky terrain. We'll take our time in the surrounding area, enjoying the beautiful landscapes, and then continue to the first water mill. Level 5 will extend the hike by 4 km more to reach the village square.

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.
