As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetBy keeping the group size to a maximum of 12, we can also minimise the human impact on the fragile sites and ecosystems we visit.
We attempt to reduce plastic bottle use wherever possible by promoting use of reusable and filtered water bottles. Our partnership with Water-To-Go provides a discount on filtered water bottles to our clients. We do not provide water from plastic bottles to our clients in country but always ensure there is regular access to drinking water on our tours.
Throughout most of the trip we will be traveling in minibuses. Traveling as a group in a small bus contributes less pollution than a multitude of vehicles. We will also be exploring many areas on foot, by boat, by rickshaw and by train, to not only soak up the amazing sights at a slower pace, but to reduce our environmental impact and footprint along our journey.
PeopleResponsible travel and sustainable tourism are fundamental ideas that Wild Frontiers has been committed to since our birth. It is our strong belief that these words should not be simply ‘tagged on’ to itineraries and websites but should be at the very core of each trip, and our adventures are therefore designed with the local people, culture and eco-system in mind. We believe that a successful trip not only delivers a unique and unsurpassable journey for our clients, but that it also benefits the peoples whose lands we are privileged to visit.
Aarong - Bangladesh
Bengali for ‘village fair’, Aarong is a lifestyle retail outlet and social enterprise of the non-governmental development organisation, BRAC (Building Resources Across Communities).
Established in 1978, Aarong provides economic opportunity to local women and disadvantaged artisans through the promotion and production of traditional handicrafts. The ethical brand employs over 30,000 artisans, many of which are rural women. Employees of Aarong are also beneficiaries of BRAC's development programme, providing artisans with various support services, such as the opportunity to gain access to healthcare, micro-loans, legal aid and education for their children.
On this trip you will have the opportunity to visit an Aarong shop, where you can browse the varied and tempting collection of handicrafts, jewellery, clothing and home décor. For more information visit www.aarong.com.
