A history that marks our way of being and doing, walking every day to form an active part of those changes that will help make a better world.
We are born inspired in the adventurous spirit, of overcoming and respect toward the Basque whalers. Intrepid and courageous people who were respectful of other cultures, who five hundred years ago wrote a beautiful page in the history of the world. The experiences of those whalers in Newfoundland (Ternua in Basque language) thanks to their effort, tenacity and eagerness to overcome, they were the inspiration for the creation of a brand about the mountain, nature, adventure, solidarity and respecting the environment. And this is our path, today and always: to give back to the planet what it has given us, protecting nature and people, without destroying a drop of their essence.
Ternua is born, the brand that dresses those adventurers and outdoor spirits that look to connect with nature. We adopted four whales via the WDC. We first dressed with TERNUA our friends Alberto and Félix Iñurrategi, and agreed to accompany them in their adventures to climb 14 of the eight thousanders, alpine style without supplementary oxygen (Félix died in an accident in the GII in 2000).
