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 and people

We use local professional mountain guides on Aconcagua at a ratio of approximately 1:3. This provides local employment and training. We use local arrerios (mule drivers) and mules for carrying equipment and stock the trek from local markets, buying foods without packaging where possible.

All our staff, from porters to guides, are paid fairly and we encourage our clients to interact with their hosts, promoting cross-cultural understanding of the area and the people that are being visited. Our group size for Aconcagua is usually 8 to 12, keeping the environmental impact of our teams to a minimum. Waste is all carried out and we follow a leave no trace philosophy in this fragile mountain area.

We are support several charities in South America. We have recently started an additional support of the UK registered chairty Amantani. As this charity is very much in keeping with our ethos of small scale, targetted help which is educational & sustainabale. HuchuyYachaq is the other main Peruvian charity we support by paying a for a full time teacher. We also donate to the Galapagos Conservation Trust for all of our visitors to Galapagos and Rainforest Conservation Trust. A % of all our income goes to support those projects.
