Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your vacation will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
We ensure our guides are mindful about protecting the environment in which you travel, and they do a fantastic job of promoting having a minimum impact to the environment whilst traveling. We ask you to be vigilant about disposing of your waste and recycle where possible. During your trip you will be asked if you have any waste to dispose of when it is a suitable time in the itinerary. This ensures we make it as easy as possible for our travelers to be eco-friendly whilst traveling.

We strongly advise all travelers to bring a reusable water bottle - this is an easy way to save plastic waste and is detailed in our ‘What to bring’ trip notes for all trips to all destinations. Your guide will remind you where and when you can fill up your re-usable water bottle.

We also encourage general sustainability - limited use of air-con for instance. Something we focus on as an organisation and try to pass on to our travelers
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

As regular travelers, one thing that never ceases to amaze and inspire us is the kindness and generosity of local people, often people who have very little to their name. We firmly believe that they are who make these places special and that they should benefit from our visit. Therefore, as first preference, we use local guides and locally-owned lodges, shops and eateries.

We do our best to ensure that the benefits of our tours reach as widely as possible into the communities where they operate. Across Bhutan our tours only use local drivers, assistants, cooks and staff, who all ensure that supplies are purchased locally. Our belief is that all operational costs should go directly into the local economy wherever possible. Improving employment opportunities in remote regions is a powerful tool in tourism and something that goes right to the heart of our responsible travel ethos.

We also support a small portfolio of charities and local grassroots organisations. The Draktsho vocational center in Kanglung, East Bhutan is an inspiring organisation teaching 120 disabled and disadvantaged young people skills to help them gain self-esteem through their contribution to the community. They desperately need more classroom space. We are aiming to provide them with a brand purpose-built Library and learning block. The building will provide a flexible space adaptable for both the academic and physical education of the children. It will incorporate fully wheelchair accessible toilets. The new Library and Learning block, alongside the new girls’ hostel and dining hall will allow the school to double its capacity.
