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 issue all our guests with reusable water bottles to reduce the need for single use plastics.
We issue all guests with a Code of Conduct detailing information and guidance of what we expect and specifically highlighting the environmental actions they can take while in Colombia. This includes guidance on water conservation, energy conservation, waste disposal and using environmentally safe and biodegradable toiletries.
We and our partners do not promote any captive animal experiences other than those required to protect and nurture endangered species. Such operations must demonstrate they are operating to the highest ethical, welfare and ecological standards - as independently audited by an NGO, charity or government approved body, before being considered.
In the Cocora Valley, guests will learn about the sustainability initiatives being undertaken to preserve the land and its communities. In the Coffee Region, guests visit a traditional coffee plantation to see and experience how the local farmers ensure their activities are sustainable and environmentally sound.
PeopleWe are firmly committed to “local delivery”. This stance is defined by our commitment to only use local guides and tour support staff. We do not employ Tour Leaders from the UK. This ensures that we are investing in our chosen destinations and their local communities.
We actively give priority to local suppliers and service providers that demonstrate an active stance regarding their employees’ fair treatment and remuneration and to uphold their social and economic rights. Our excursions and activities focus on the local community. For example, on this tour guests visit an organic locally owned coffee plantation and a traditional local market in Bogotá. By purchasing directly with local producers, guests can contribute to the local economy. In Los Llanos, guests will see first-hand the initiatives being undertaken to preserve the local community’s habitat and traditional working methods in the face of increasing ecological and social challenges.
Our tours and tailor-made itineraries provide the opportunity to visit local social projects either as an included activity or as an optional excursion. All such projects are vetted to ensure they provide either financial, social or community benefit.
