Responsible tourism: Argentina holiday, Buenos Aires, Mendoza and Bariloche
We are strategic in considering every aspect of this itinerary in order to create the most eco-friendly, but still authentic, tour we can offer. For instance, Estancia Peuma Hue offers guests luxury services while still maintaining a commitment to sustainable practices. The lodge is gorgeously situated among Patagonian mountains, forest, creeks, and waterfalls, resulting in transfers being unnecessary in order to enjoy activities nearby. Also, the on-site organic garden provides produce for each gourmet meal guests enjoy. This results in an overall greater resourcefulness in the operations of the estancia.
Conservation practices in our own office are just as important to our operation as preservation efforts during our tours. Cycling, walking, and car pooling to work are promoted so much that we have once again been named winner of our city-wide commuter challenge! Our small city only offers recycling of a few items such as aluminum cans. However, we pay for private recycling services to collect all of our paper waste, plastic, cardboard, and cans. Our office paper is made from 100% post-consumer material, and our customized brochures use soy ink, which is an earth friendly alternative. We make sincere efforts to reduce our impact on the environment here at home just as we do in our destination countries.
Enjoy all that Argentina has to offer with a glimpse into the countryside life on the island of Tigre, experience a true local art form at a Tango show in Buenos Aires, take a cooking class and wander the wine trails in Mendoza, explore rugged Patagonia, and become an Argentinean one day at a time. This itinerary immerses the traveler in experiences that reflect different facets of this country. By including activities that utilize local services, we are pouring back into the local economies in which we travel.
To further support the communities and sustain the environments in all of our destinations, we decided to initiate a grant program. This continuous program has given financial support to several different grassroots initiatives. Some of these include reforestation and home restoration projects in the Andes, funding a Christmas fiesta at a Costa Rica orphanage, providing a school in Guatemala with building supplies made out of recycled materials, supplying proper plumbing and irrigation to a historic hacienda in Bolivia by installing a new well system, and providing first-aid and hospitality training for the Secoya lodge in the Ecuadorian Amazon. By joining our community, you also directly support these projects!
