Sustainable Travel

Travel should be more than the 'haves' of the world visiting the 'have nots'. Sustainable travel utilizing ecotourism principles allows travel experiences and money to be a source of good and an agent of change (or conservation😉).

We believe that there are four basic principles for sustainable travel.
  1. Look to minimize the impact of your travels.
  2. Use travel to build environmental and cultural awareness and respect.
  3. Find trips that offer positive experiences for both guests and hosts.
  4. Take trips that provide direct financial benefits for conservation and the local economy.

While these are guiding principles in all of our travels, we search for stories of sustainable travel that exemplify these beliefs and share them here.
