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.
PlanetOn this trip we stay at small, locally run campsites or hostels and buy our food locally, thereby directly supporting local communities. We use local companies to run all our excursions. They, in turn, employ local drivers and guides-supporting the local economy. Camping, in itself, helps to conserve natural resources. There is no option to leave the lights, heating or aircon on!
In terms of water consumption our trucks carry a large supply of treated drinking water. We encourage our clients to bring reusable water bottles on their trip with them and to refill these from our truck water supply. Thus, eliminating the need to buy bottled water. We also offer a discount scheme for our clients to purchase water filtration bottles. This means that they can obtain drinking water when they are away from the truck too.
Before the trip commences clients are sent detailed pre-departure information which includes advice on responsible travel. This information is re-emphasised by the tour leader at the start of the trip-clients, for example, are advised about respecting local customs, conservation of natural habitats and wildlife, litter disposal etc.
The numbers of clients we take on this tour are limited, to a maximum of twenty-four, thus reducing the environmental and cultural impact of a large group.
PeopleOn this trip we stay at small, locally run campsites or hostels and buy our food locally, thereby directly supporting local communities. We use local companies to run all our excursions. They, in turn, employ local drivers and guides-supporting the local economy. For example, in Torres del Paine the campsite that we stay at offers fishing and horse riding trips run by members of the local community. In Chile, the white water rafting option is run by a local family. We have been supporting their business over a number of years. In Argentina, our local 'guides' come under a different guise - how about learning to Tango with a local expert, or for the less nimble on their feet, get swept away just watching one of the passionate Tango shows?
We encourage our travelers to eat out at local restaurants, cafes and with local street food sellers. Our crew usually have a range of places to recommend based on their vast research!!
