Responsible tourism

Java, Flores and Sulawesi holiday, Indonesia

Carbon reduction

Your holiday will help support local people and conservation. We must also reduce CO2. Learn about the CO2 emissions of this holiday and how to reduce them.

Environment

We are promoting the natural beauty and ancient heritage of Indonesia through visiting the UNESCO World Heritage Sites of Borobudur and Prambanan Bromo. UNESCO Sites are chosen by the UNESCO committee and must "bear a unique or at least exceptional testimony to a cultural tradition or to civilisation", "an important interchange of human values" or be outstanding examples of major stages of Earth's history or ecological and biological processes in evolution. Visiting such sites helps sustain the traditions and natural ecosystems of Indonesia.

We are committed to low-level tourism impact and we keep group sizes to a maximum of 12 to avoid huge tour bus loads of tourists, which increases environmental damage but also is less likely to be welcomed by locals. On certain days of the tour we will be walking from village to village, reducing our environmental impact and allowing us to enjoy this wonderful part of Indonesia at a slower pace.

We attempt to reduce plastic bottle use wherever possible by promoting use of reusable and filtered water bottles. Our partnership with Water-To-Go provides a discount on filtered water bottles to our clients. We do not provide water from plastic bottles to our clients in country but always ensure there is regular access to drinking water on our tours.

Community

On Day 7 we will stay in a homestay in Tana Toraja for a unique glimpse into the traditions and customs of local life. The homestay market, helps them to provide good, clean and interesting accommodation which in term allows them to educate their children, improve their standard of living and look after their ill. The wonderful thing about this kind of interactive tourism is that everyone gains – the families financially and us with the wonderful welcome and experience they give us. Wherever possible we stay in locally owned accommodation, eat in locally owned establishments and purchase supplies from the local nomads.

On Day 3, we will visit a traditional Kris-maker. An asymmetrical dagger with a distinctive blade, the Kris has long been steeped in traditional folklore and mysticism and is listed by UNESCO as a “Masterpiece of Intangible Heritage of Humanity”. You will learn about the Kris-makers of this area and traditional creative methods that go back centuries. Visiting artisans not only provides income to them via selling their goods, but also ensures they are able to continue their craft and pass it onto the next generations.
