Le Grand Adventure Tours philosophy is to support & give back to the local communities, environment and deep-rooted connections that we have established over the years.
We have built relationships with people around the world that share the same commitment to the environment and passion for traveling and sport adventures. All of our trips support the local community by working with local businesses, charities, guides and people of the area to support their community. We donate a part of our proceeds each year to the HighFives Foundation as they are dedicated to raising money and awareness for athletes that have suffered a life-altering injury while pursuing their dream in the action sports community.
High Fives Foundation
High Fives Non-Profit Foundation, based in Truckee, CA, became an official 501c.3 non-profit on January 19, 2009. Founded by Roy Tuscany, the Tahoe-based organization supporting the dreams of mountain action sports athletes by raising injury prevention awareness while providing resources and inspiration to those who suffer life-altering injuries. The Empowerment Fund provides resources and inspiration to those who suffer a life-altering injury. Life-altering injuries are injuries such as spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, amputation or other mobility-limiting injuries that occurred in an athlete’s lifetime.

Together we´ve travelled the world for many years constantly searching for perfect trails and the best powder descents. We have discovered many fantastic spots and perfect runs even in the most remote locations on this planet. It wasn´t always easy finding the right equipment for our trips. It was particularly hard to find backpacks and bags on the market that met our requirements. So our solution was to make them ourselves! We communicate our passion for sports and for what we do in every product. That’s why EVOC products are always a bit more than just pieces of equipment.
