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.
PlanetHow this trip helps protect and conserve local landscapes and nature.
• By traveling in a small group we ‘tread lightly’ to minimise our impact on local resources and the environment.
• We work with our partners on the ground to proactively reduce waste; this includes eliminating all single-use plastic water bottles by providing refills for re-usable bottles.
• The payment of entrance fees to natural reserves and archaeological sites generates income which is used for upkeep and development of these important sites. The trip takes in several UNESCO World Heritage Sites including the Nabatean ruins at Hegra, rock art at Jubbah, Al Ahsa oasis and Jeddah’s historic center.
• We visit Ushaiger Heritage Village, one of the oldest settlements in the region which boasts some stunning traditional Najdi architecture.
• We rewild 100 square metres per passenger to compensate for all trip and flight emissions.
PeopleHow this trip helps improve life for local communities.
• Local guides keep you well informed about local traditions and cultural-social sensitivities.
• This trip brings income and opportunity to the destination community through the inclusion of locally owned hotels, restaurants, and other enterprises, and by championing locally produced food wherever possible.
• In Buraydah we visit the Women’s Souq, and the Al Jerredah Souq, which specialise in art and crafts.
• In Taif we visit a rose factory where the local people gather roses to make one of the best rose perfumes in the world.
