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.
PlanetOur local partner in Iran is instrumental in developing a regional policy for environmentally sustainable tourism and works very closely with the official bodies in advising them how to best implement this. This includes the preservation of some of key natural attractions and ensuring that the gradual increase in tourism and its associated services does not have a detrimental effect.
This is a concept that is still very much in its infancy in this part of the world and we are proud to be working with such a respected pioneer in this field at such a key moment in tourism. This includes such issues as waste management, management of scarce resources such as water, and ensuring that future developments in the tourism sector are carried out in an environmentally sensitive manner.
We work with our local suppliers to highlight best practice in terms of environmental issues, an important effort in a country where the environment is often taken for granted.
PeopleWe only work with operators who are as committed as we are to putting something back into the communities we visit. This may include giving a percentage of the profits from each tour to a foundation to help street children or local conservation projects. Our local supplier in Iran works closely with the government bodies responsible to help protect the impressive archaeological sites to be found here.
Our journey through southern and central Iran takes us through areas which are the summer domain of various nomadic tribes who migrate from lowland pastures in winter to the mountains in the summer. We are careful to respect local customs and culture and our groups are briefed on this aspect of Iran. Travelers also have the opportunity to support local communities by purchasing local handicrafts.
Our groups average only two clients. This has much less impact when traveling through rural areas, reducing our environmental and social affects.
Finally to emphasise our commitment to Responsible Tourism all clients will receive a copy of our Travelers Code of Conduct with their travel documents.
