Responsible tourism

Responsible tourism: Summer volunteering in Portugal

Environment

Carbon Emissions
We compensate 100% of the carbon footprint of our transportation from the airport to the Impact House and use public transportation to go from Lisbon to Óbidos.

Accommodation
In Lisbon, we host travelers in the most sustainable hostel in Portugal. It not only runs based on the best internationally recognized sustainability practices but invites hosts to get involved and participate in the circular economy projects such as the closed food waste cycle or the transformation of the plastic into new projects.

Group Size
In this project, we work with small groups usually up to 5 strong to ensure that we don't put too much pressure on the natural resources and to offer a personalized experience.

Our team
We live our values and promises in our day-to-day lives! Through energy conservation measures, responsible shopping and recycling policies, we are proud to be actively reducing the waste produced and our impact on the environment. We promote sustainability practices into their daily life and frequently challenge them to change.

Community

The project
During the summer we organize groups of local Portuguese and international volunteers to work intensively in 14 days to completely transform a countryside town in Portugal.

These volunteers will renovate the houses of families in need and offer them a much better quality of life. They will break down walls, fix roofs, paint houses and repair pipes and doors. You don't need to be an expert, just come and learn.

Social Partnership
We closely work in partnership with a local non-profit which has rehabilitated over 110 houses between Lisbon and Porto. This non-profit promotes social inclusion through housing and completely change the life of the families they support.

Local sourcing
We only promote tourism experiences who respect local traditions and minimize social negative impacts. We preferentially suggest locally guided tours.

Our team
Through volunteer work, flexible working hours that promote a better work-life balance, and sourcing from local and socially and environmentally responsible suppliers we strive to apply our values to our everyday work ethic as a company.
