Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Fitz Roy Patagonia trekking holiday

Environment

WASTE: In Argentina, like in all of our locations, we practice a Leave No Trace principle. This is important in preserving the the Mt. Fitz Roy region of Argentina. Reducing waste and reducing the environmental impact of tourism is a big priority of our company in all the place we operate. In Patagonia we incentivize environmental stewardship in the Andes mountain regions by assessing all partner lodges based on local ownership, energy-sourcing, and waste disposal. Our lodges in the Mt. Fitz Roy region go to great measures to reduce impact in this remote area by packing in and out supplies and waste. The Andes region of Argentine Patagonia is a precious resource and we must help to protect it. All meals are provided with food that is sourced locally to minimize packaging and waste. Our Argentinian guides serve as environmental and waste reduction educators on the trail. They talk about the environmental issues that are challenging the Patagonia region and they demonstrate and educate best practices for responsible travel to our travelers.

WATER: In Argentina, we encourage the use of reusable bottles instead of purchasing plastic bottled water. We actively educate clients on the impact of plastic products on the remote environments of the Mt. Fitz Roy area and all of Patagonia. Within the Fitz Roy area, the water in most of the streams is drinkable without treatment. Our guides encourage our travelers to drink the stream water to really demonstrate the importance of the protection of the water supply and environment.. In areas of Argentina where water must be treated, we utilize ultraviolet (UV) purification systems on the trail to avoid boiling water over flame or propane when possible. Having to build a fire or boil water, or carry propane into the mountains creates waste pollution. This ultraviolet (UV) purification systems practice eliminates tens of thousands of wasteful water bottles being purchased and discarded and that could potentially pollute the Argentine environment.

Community

FRIENDS AND NEIGHBORS: With our company, we are committed to doing travel right. We see travel in Argentina as one of the most effective means of investing in amazing people and places. We work with experienced local Argentinian guides from the local communities in which we operate. Our guides either come from Fitz Roy area or have spent most of their lives in this southern Patagonia region. This is not only the responsible thing to do but provides a better and more authentic travel experience. We invest 10% of our total revenue in the form of microcredit to small-scale entrepreneurs in the communities of Argentina. We partner directly with FINAM and Banigualdad, microfinance institutions that provide low-interest capital to small businesses in the regions where we operate. This is our mission, our passion, and what makes our company very unique in the travel industry.

A FAIR DEAL: In Argentina our company partners up with local lodge owners in El Calafate, El Chalten, and in the remote spots of the Fitz Roy area. We partner with local drivers and transport companies that employ local Argentine residents. We focus on partnering with other local businesses in the areas and communities we operate, to maximize the local benefit from tourism. We practice a Leave No Trace principle on all our expeditions and we incentivize environmental best practices among our partners. Our teams are locally hired within Argentina. We travel with respect and preservation of local Argentinian customs and with that perspective in mind we educate those who travel with us in the importance of preserving these important factors that make Argentina an amazing place to visit and protect.
