Responsible tourism

As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we screen every trip so you can travel knowing your holiday will help support conservation and local people.

Environment
As we supply water for the riders from the support van during transit days, we provide the riders with their own water bottle and purchase water in the form of a 50L drum in an effort to reduce the vast amount of plastic from the many 330ml bottles.

WASH (Water, Sanitation & Hygiene)
We partner with NGOs who are actively involved in the WASH program, manufacturing and distributing various water filters and tanks to people in need. From these NGOs, we engage with, learn from and at times, sponsor WASH program based projects.

Local Impact:
Being a cycle based operation, we are conscious of our carbon footprint and aspire to have a low impact on the environment. Our internal environmental policy ensures we only ever leave footprints (and cycle tracks) and only ever take photos.

Agricultural Wildlife:
We support, engage with and introduce you to NGO partners that are actively involved in many agricultural pass-on programs to enable positive animal welfare with people empowerment and resources. We also avoid all tourist orientated animal experiences where wildlife is taken out of it's natural surrounding for tourist interactions.
Community

The Impacts of this Trip

We have recently become an official supporter of Child Safe, where we have pledged to support the practices to keep children safe.

As part of our child protection policy, we do NOT interact or engage with any children at schools or nurseries. We do NOT offer or promote any short term unskilled volunteer opportunities, nor do we allow any photography of, or interaction with, children during any NGO visits.
We actively promote and support the ‘Children are not tourists attractions’ campaign from Child Safe.

Donations to charities:
We believe in learning from local experts to create a positive impact by supporting transparent, ethical, sustainable and community based projects.
This is your chance to speak to local experts as part of your adventure, as you cycle across the country and gain a true understanding of life outside the tourist bubble.
Of your tour price, A$100 will be given directly to Brown Girl Woke. This brave organisation challenges traditionally taboo topics such as domestic violence and sexual abuse to create a safe space for local victims. You’ll be inspired after meeting Doris.
Doris Tulifau is a survivor, educator, activist and organizer ensuring that there are safe spaces for our future generations to talk about trauma before they deal with it as adults. She founded the Brown Girl Woke, a group that promotes young women and men to empower them on taboo issues happening in the Samoan community especially on domestic violence and sexual abuse.

Contributions to charities as partners:
In addition to promoting and marketing our partnered NGOs, we also pay each NGO for their time and resources of the tours interactions. This time usually lasts no longer than 1-2 hours and all NGOs are renumerated regardless as to whether or not there is a follow up donation from the group.

Local institutions and employment
We hire locally for transport assistance and support van. We also support local businesses as opposed to international franchises in all restaurant and hotel choices. In addition, we actively seek out social enterprise based restaurants to include in tour packages. These restaurants are often connected to local NGOs and use the restaurants as training facilities for empowering disadvantaged youth.

Places we visit:
In this particular tour, we visit local farmers through the Women in Business program. WIBDI promote the coconut and cocoa industry in Samoa and assist farmers in marketing and distribution to the international market. We also learn from Poutasi Development Trust, who educate locals on sustainable and efficient organic farming practices and Samoa Victim Support Group, where we learn the more complicated issues surrounding domestic violence and abuse.
