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’ve seen first hand how tourism can contribute to the abuse and mistreatment of animals, and it devastates us. To help end this, we support and visit a number of local animal welfare groups, we ensure no animal is ever hurt or negatively impacted by our activities, and we’ve even adopted a number of rescue animals at the properties we own.
To help reduce single use plastics and promote reusable alternatives, we’ve installed refillable water stations at nearly all of our overnight stops, and at many of our activity locations.
We advise all our travellers to bring a reusable water bottle when they travel, but for those that don’t we also sell INTRO branded bottles on all our trips.
We've partnered with Eden Reforestation Projects to help protect, preserve and rebuild the natural world. We plant 10 trees for every INTRO Travel booking made.
By hiring local villagers to plant trees in Nepal, Haiti, Indonesia & more, Eden Reforestation Projects are helping replant forests, restore animal habitats and reduce poverty and INTRO Travel are proud to support them with your help.
PeopleWe ensure that every trip we run has a direct and positive impact on the local communities we visit. This means that your money is being used to support the local economy, and going direct to those who need it most. Every one of our trips includes a variety of #smallchanges that you’ll get to experience first hand.
As opposed to being a cultural observer, our trips are designed to help you understand and respect local cultures, traditions and ways of life. Through sharing knowledge and understanding, we ensure that your travels are mutually beneficial for both you, and those you are visiting.
Based in Midigama, our Sri Lanka Experience trip visits a Buddhist Monastery with all funds from the experience going towards the maintenance and development of the school. In addition, our travellers also help the young monks with their English language practice, and in turn have the chance to learn about life as a student monk.
