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.
As you move from place to place, you’ll use public buses and series of trains, an effective way to help lower your carbon footprint, mingle with the locals and soak up the scenic views as you make your way to the next location. There will also be a lot of walking in each location to discover them. These walking trips will provide you with light exercise - looking after your well being, while also reducing the carbon footprint on the planet - looking after the planet’s well being!
On this tour, we stay in hotels and spend 1 night in a temple stay and 1 night in a Jjimjilbang, a great way to immerse yourself in a local South Korean tradition. During the temple stay, you can experience the daily life of monks and learn about South Korean sports. Whilst you’re staying in each of these places, we encourage you to use local services on offer, this way your money goes straight into the local community and economy.
We have many hikes included in the tour. We believe this is a wonderful way of seeing the place you are in and reducing carbon footprint and also the viewpoints throughout are definitely worthwhile. While in Jeju islands, we include many outdoor activities so customers can appreciate the beauty of the sea and hills.
We suggest packing a reusable water bottle to ensure you have water on hand at all times and help minimise the trail of plastic left behind as much as possible. There are many filtered water refill points and we highly encourage our travelers use this. We also recommend packing as light as possible, to help keep your carbon footprint low.
PeopleLocal tour guides:
We use local and bilingual guides. By using local tour guides we help support the local people and provide employment opportunities.
You’ll start learning about the local cuisine as soon as you meet the group - starting with a group dinner and our Adventure Leader will always be happy to give you recommendations for traditional restaurants. The temple stay and K Pop Dance Class experiences are must-have experiences while in South Korea that give you insight into the religion and culture.
The tour also includes a Half Day trip to the DMZ (demilitarized zone at the border with North Korea), which helps our customers to understand the history of South Korea.
All of our customers’ interactions are with local suppliers, and we promote integration between travelers and local people through our “unmissable” included activities and our optional activities, and opportunities for authentic cultural immersion.
Our Adventure Leaders are trained in ensuring that customers are aware of local customs and traditions, educating them on when it is appropriate to take photos and/or videos.
