Responsible tourism: Northern Chile and South West Bolivia holiday
We only work with licensed ground operators who work with local guides, natural reserves and archaeological sites. The entrance fees, are paid directly and the money is used to protect the environment and the up-keeping of the park.
We encourage off the beaten track routes, because we feel that the experience is more intense and genuine, and therefore enables our customers to connect with nature more. Visitors will however be reminded to take care of the environmentally fragile routes and historical/culturally important sites, in Bolivia and in Chile, such as Uyuni Salt Flats and Sajama. This tremendously special nature experience should make guests aware how precious the environment is for all our well-being.
For our 4x4 tours we ensure that the cars are being checked periodically to maximise safety in the Bolivian Salt Flats and to also minimise the exhausts within the local regulations.
As a small tour operator we encourage our customers to follow the guidelines of our travellers’ code of conduct, where we emphasise waste management and local consumption at destination.
When you decide to travel with us, you will be contributing to the local communities directly.
Among a crumbling colonial legacy, Bolivia is striving to secure a more prosperous future while holding on to the clothing, music, religions and even languages that are firmly rooted in the majority of its people whose ancestors pre-date the Spanish conquistadors. Street vendors ply their trade at every corner and most women still wear traditional dress and ubiquitous bowler hats.
We will put you in touch with local cultures and so you are able to learn more about the area’s history, its current way of living and how traditions are maintained. For example, we encourage eating at locally-owned establishments and there is opportunity to enjoy a simple meal with the local community Sajama Mountain. We work directly with local operators, supporting the local economy by providing jobs. Furthermore we put an emphasis of using of locally produced ingredients in cooking meals
We ask you to respect the archaeological sites, natural reserves and the communities you will visit by trying to avoid wasting water, throwing litter or damaging the environment.
