Chile & Patagonia vacation

Carbon reduction

Your vacation will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this vacation and how to reduce them.

Environment

Our Chile & Patagonia itinerary has a heavy focus on regional & local cuisine and responsible, sustainable agriculture as well as environmentally responsible travel, and conservation of the country’s biodiversity. Our vineyard visit is at a boutique operation that's focused on organic and biodynamic practices as well as water conservation. We work with local partners and vendors that have an eye toward eco conservation and protection of the landscape. We also work with restaurants and farms for organic, local foods whenever possible that are also culturally appropriate. During our hike, we will pack out any waste and also learn about conservation in Torres Del Paine.

When we arrive to Torres Del Paine, we'll partake in an activity with our community Partner - Torres Del Paine Legacy Fund - to learn about the integral work they do in the park like conservation, infrastructure improvement, trail work, as well as a tourism diversification project with the municipality.

In addition to ensuring local and sustainably produced foods in our included meals and restaurant selections, any time we buy snacks for the road, we will prioritize fresh and local bites. As well, on all of our trips, we focus on reduction of plastic and make sure that water jugs are available for refilling personal reusable water bottles as well as encouraging guests to bring water filtration bottles. In the event of waste, recycle and composting, we direct client to the appropriate bins and disposal method.

Community

We focus on locally owned suppliers throughout the trip including our boutique hotels, local guides, activity providers, and restaurants. The businesses and restaurants we patron are leaders in their community, providing thoughtful job training and ethical treatment to their staff.

In addition to the environmental impact of our community partner, they also focus on engaging and educating local communities in sustainable tourism development, as well as a tourism empowerment project with the indigenous Kawésqar community. 5% of our trip sales will be donated to our community partner.

Our native Chilean guides who are with us throughout the itinerary will supply unique insight into the history, culture, and character of Chile, as will each local vendor we've carefully selected. We believe that a sound understanding of the local culture and community is essential to a transformative travel experience, and there is no better way to get that than from hearing through the stories of a local.
