Páramo wins in BBC Countryfile magazine awards!

Thank you to all of you who voted Páramo into the top three Outdoor Brand of the Year in BBC Countryfile’s magazine awards. They’re a celebration of our countryside and its people – from great heritage attractions and our favourite holiday destinations, to the best nature reserves and the finest rural pubs, and the best kit to go out and enjoy the British countryside!

Editor Fergus Collins said:

“This is our way of saying thank you to the people and places that make the countryside so special. The awards clearly roused great passion and amassed thousands of votes, a testament to the strong contenders in each category. It was a closely fought competition generating great interest. Our winners can be justly proud of their titles – they have been endorsed as outstanding examples in their field by our readership.”

Páramo are Best Buy says TGO magazine

Torres Gilet - Best Buy says TGO magazine!

Torres Light Weight GiletPáramo’s Torres Gilet was tested by The Great Outdoors (TGO) magazine as part of their Insulated Gilets test. Chris Townsend, gear editor, summed up a gilet as being “one of the most useful outdoor garments” but can sometimes under-rated. We were delighted that the Torres Gilet was awarded the Best Buy accolade! “One of the warmest synthetic baselayers” with likes “warm, designed for overlayering” and dislikes “nothing”. A great result for a fantastically versatile piece of kit!

Páramo retailer, C-N-Do, wins Gold Star Award!

Páramo retailer, C-N-Do, wins Gold Star Award!At the UK annual Green Tourism conference in Manchester on 10th Nov, C-N-Do Scotland, based in Stirling, was awarded a Gold Star Award for best Tour Operator. ‘This is a great way to mark our 30th year in business as Scotland’s premier walking tour operator’ says MD Margaret Porter. ‘Receiving this means a lot to us, and recognises the high standard of green ethics and sustainable operations we have been committed to from the start.’

The award was very appropriately presented by Satish Kumar, the Jain monk who walked from India to Moscow, Paris, London and Washington, to lobby heads of state about the importance of a reverence for nature being at the heart of political decision making.
