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.
PlanetSmaller the better, small group numbers are what we strive for strictly. We want our guests to travel but have the least impact at the same time, be it the usage of goods and services consumed or other resources. Small numbers are good for less wastage, fewer carbon footprints and are more sustainable in the long run. We also advise on limiting the weight of baggage to only 15 kilos
We strictly advise our guests to avoid any use of single-use plastic. On the trip water is provided through larger refillable containers, we source them from the manufacturers and these are reusable. Any waste generated on the trip is collected by our crew and then disposed off responsible conforming to local available laws.
Even with support vehicle cycling tends to still tend to be the greenest form of transport. We do not own any transport but hire them which means we get newer vehicles which conform to the latest environmental and safety norms and are greener than they used to be.
PeopleWe avoid going into the touristy areas, although the trip starts in Mumbai that's due to the availability of an international airport. We soon leave the mainstream big cities and tend to stay in places which are in more need of recognition and to be seen by responsible visitors than their touristy counterparts.
Our guests will come up close with the local culture and the way of life in the Konkan region but at the same time, we do not interfere with the usual lives of the people living and working there. The best way is to observe what you see how tranquil life is, Its colourful and smiling faces everywhere just wave at them.
The hotels we use are mostly simple and family-owned, they will cook the local produce and serve to our guests. This does ensure that most of the cost is spent in the areas we visit. Our crew and support staff will be local will hands down the knowledge of the area.
