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

CARBON REDUCTION
We recognize the significant impact of tourism on the environment, from CO2 emissions and deforestation to animal welfare, reef destruction, and soil erosion, and we are determined to make a positive difference in the world.

This 5-day journey uses shared transportation as you circle the country, visiting the highlights in both the southern and northern regions. You are not taking any domestic flights or private cars.

Additional to the local transportation the group will be taking during the trip, walking constitutes a significant aspect of exploring the destinations. This reduces CO2 emissions per person.

The Korean cuisine consistently offers a menu accommodating for vegetarians.

ENVIRONMENT AND WILDLIFE
The included entrance fees contribute to the preservation of Seoraksan National Park, which is home to numerous rare species. UNESCO designated this national park a Biosphere Preservation District in 1982.

South Korea employs an efficient recycling system that effectively reduces waste and optimizes resource utilization. This encompasses practices such as reusing, repairing, refurbishing, and recycling materials and products. Simultaneously, waste is regarded as a valuable resource, leading to the minimization of waste volume. We educate our travelers about these practices to encourage their implementation during their trip.

The accommodations you stay at during this trip, are putting efforts into taking steps every day to minimize the impact of their operations, working to reduce the environmental footprint and preserve natural resources by being mindful of their energy consumption, which helps cut down on CO2 emissions. Likewise, they're focused on minimizing hotel waste, while also boosting recycling and composting efforts.

People

LOCAL ECONOMY
The accommodations you stay at during this trip, work closely with the community, and make social contributions to the region. You'll be lodging at a Korean-owned hotel in Gyeongju.

As you journey, you'll get the chance to check out local shops in various cities and villages, which helps support the local economy. You will also have the opportunity to explore cooperative markets like Jagalchi Market, thereby contributing to the local economy.

Additionally, you'll have the opportunity to explore the Andong Hahoe local village that offers a deep immersion into the captivating culture accompanied by local residents who give the place life and the sensation of a working community. It's worth noting that while residents are accustomed to visitors, it's essential to respect their privacy.

EMPLOYMENT, INCLUSIVITY AND DIVERSITY
The majority of our staff, including guides, are local individuals from the country who can provide insights into Korean culture.
We also ensure that our staff receive at least the minimum wage and are covered by employment insurance.

We are dedicated to creating a friendly and inclusive atmosphere for customers, employees, destination communities, and local operators. This includes implementing a strict zero-tolerance policy for any form of racial, ethnic, religious, or gender-based discrimination in all their activities or operations.
