Responsible tourism: Argentina and Chile holiday, lakes crossing
We believe tourism should be educational and sustainable, as well as entertaining. We designed this trip to contribute minimal impact to the local environment with positive benefits to the local communities.
All guides follow strict “green ethics”. Reusable water bottles are provided in an effort to encourage less waste and discourage the need for plastic throw-away bottles.
All of our guides practice ‘Leave No Trace’ ethics and provide clear and committed instructions for interacting with nature and wildlife with efforts to preserve and leave undisturbed the beauty for generations to enjoy.
All activities and excursions in are ecologically responsible and low-impact. Most optional excursions in the Lake districts of Argentina and Chile are non-motorized and carbon-neutral: hiking, kayaking, horseback riding, fishing, biking. Our ‘Four Balconies of Buenos Aires’ tour is featured as a walking tour.
Sustainable tourism should improve the lives of local people. This ensures growth to the local economy and support to the community.
Hotels selected for this trip are small, locally-owned, share our environmental approach and beneficially involve the local people. They practice ethical business standards and are committed to environmental preservation.
Guides are local citizens. Tours in Buenos Aires, Bariloche and the Chile Lakes district are integrated with the municipality, neighborhoods, associations or organizations in the local areas, helping support different activities that promote the region, such as shows, sponsorships, and meetings in addition to supporting new housing projects, community centers and schools.
Tours on Chiloe Island include local guides and feature the unique culture of the islanders. Stops are made exclusively at local homes, shops, museums and restaurants.
As members of the IGLTA (International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association), we promise to only work with partners and guides who are conscious and conscientious of the various backgrounds of our globally diverse travelers.
