Responsible tourism: Alaska & Canada adventure vacation, Gold Rush Trail

Environment

Our Overland Vehicle is running carbon neutral. As much as we believe that the only right way is to save ressources and find ways to reduce CO2 emmissions we also think running our vehicle carbon neutral is at least a start: It is a necessary second-best solution for us as a small company. We decided to go with atmosfair, which is a climate protection organisation with a focus on travel. They actively protect the climate by compensating greenhouse gases through the use of renewable energies, among other activities. This means we are calculating the fuel consumption for a whole year. 3 liters of fuel equals 3 kg of CO2. For the amount of CO2 emissions we will pay atmosfair to compensate and reinvest in green energy projects.

The protection of wildlife and wilderness is of the utmost importance to us. We pride ourselves on making we sure we minimize the usage of local resources such as firewood and water along with teaching our clients the proper ways to view wildlife in their natural habitat. We have certain rules that passengers must follow when interactions with wildlife present themselves. The United States prides itself on its National Parks and Preserves. Each park we visit, the entrance and commercial fees are used to keep the parks and preserves in their most pristine state.

Community

When we travel throughout North America, there are many different cultures we associate with helping to preserve and develop a better understanding of their heritages. The ‘Ksan Historical Village and Museum in Canada/British Columbia is an excellent way to support a village that has been around for centuries. Our visit helps perpetuate the authentic lifestyles of the people who have always lived there. This experience allows our passengers to understand how these native peoples have evolved over the centuries before and after European contact.

Being a small family run business, we pride ourselves on developing relationships with the locals, most notably the local suppliers. When we provide accommodations, or when we go canoeing, we do everything we can to work with small local businesses. And this is not only to support the community but also as we believe that locals will provide the best insight. Going shopping, we look for local farmers’ markets to purchase local produce.
