Responsible Travel

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.

Planet

You will be spending 4 days walking through Torres del Paine in Patagonia in search of the elusive Puma. Supporting projects like this helps ensure the survival of this species through the protection of its habitat from human encroachment. Going on tours of this nature promote wildlife trekking excursions around the world as a viable economic value to a country and its local communities.

Many of the guides have grown up in the Patagonian region and tours of this nature allow you to connect to the landscape they call home and provide them with means to protect it through putting money in their pockets. They also know the land and the wildlife and so can best lead us in a way which does not disturb the puma's.

We have a strict environmental policy to make sure that the environments we visit are not damaged in any way. Our “Leave No Trace” ethic is applied to each one of our trips, and as a responsible tour operator, it is something we are careful and steadfast about promoting. Each one of our guides are trained to uphold, promote and put into practice such responsible behaviour, especially in wilderness areas or whilst traveling to UNESCO heritage sites, which many of our trips undoubtedly do. We attempt to reduce plastic bottle use wherever possible by promoting use of reusable bottles. We understand this is not always possible in countries where tap water is not safe to drink.

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.

People

This tour involves staying at an Estancia, a tradition that dates more than 100 years. The Estancia grows its own vegetable and fruit product using natural fertilizer from the on-site stables. The product grown is used in the dishes in the restaurant. The estancia aims to reduce its footprint in order to protect the national park.

As an overall ethos, wherever possible we aim to use characterful accommodation that enhances the overall travel experience, not just offers a bed for the night. This can obviously vary dramatically from country to country and from trip to trip.

We are promoting the natural beauty and ancient heritage of Chile through the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Torres del Paine National Park. UNESCO Sites are chosen by the UNESCO committee and must "bear a unique or at least exceptional testimony to a cultural tradition or to civilisation", "an important interchange of human values" or be outstanding examples of major stages of Earth's history or ecological and biological processes in evolution. Visiting such sites helps sustain the traditions and natural ecosystems of Chile.
