As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) holiday so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWe only work with licensed ground operators who work with local guides, natural reserves and archaeological sites in the highlands and Amazon regions of Bolivia.
Most natural reserves will ask that each visitor pays directly, when entering the reserve, the admission fee, which will contribute in maintaining the reserve, building new roads and hire local staff who will look after the site and wildlife. Also, if a trip includes visits to pre-colonial sites, the fees paid to each archaeological site or museum go directly to each project.
Our community based experiences directly benefit the communities and are generally run by the communities itself who work in partnership with local operators. We encourage our customers to follow the guidelines of our travelers code of conduct, where we emphasise waste management and local consumption at destination.
Our ground operators are aware of our interest in making sure water usage and waste management are of high standards. We encourage clients to give us feedback at their return or if they want when at destination, if our ground operators are not compliant with responsible practices.
We aim to utilise fewer printed marketing and communication materials, encouraging customers to order the online version of the catalogue and ensure every experience we offer has enough online information.
PeopleWhen 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 the clothing, music, religions and even languages that are firmly rooted in the majority of its people whose ancestors pre-date the Spanish conquistadors. The high-altitude capital, La Paz, is an extraordinary place of bustle and colour providing a fascinating gateway to the country. 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. 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.
80% of our experiences include tours to local communities and the aim of each is to show the way of living of these communities or local projects.
Our activity-based experiences have a tailor made approach where we suggest and offer activities that will enable our customers to travel to communities and rural areas where there will be more opportunities to learn about its needs and visit with local people. We aim to organise tailor made responsible tourism experiences in Bolivia using our extensive local contacts and knowledge. We work directly with local operators, who have an emphasis of using of locally produced ingredients in cooking meals.
