Swiss Outdoor Association SOA

SOA – Swiss Outdoor Association – is an association of qualified and commercial outdoor and adventure organizers in Switzerland.

With the development of sport forms that need enhanced security requirements, a new market was created. Activities such as canyoning or river rafting have to be provided by dependable organizers, who keep to industry accepted security norms, in order to mitigate the adherent risks involved. SOA's aims are to keep outdoor and adventure companies' quality high and to define standards for training and further education, and to constantly monitor these standards for topicality and to amend them where and when necessary.

Trekking Team AG is a founding member and is also represented on the board.
