Mongolia
One of lifeís great freedoms is adventure, a privilege most of us take for granted and that isnít always compatible with our organised, routine lives....

Responsible Travel

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.

Planet

We are committed to positive environmental impacts through our Responsible Travel Policy. As an overland company we have extremely low carbon emissions throughout all our journeys. We aim to ensure the clients do as much walking as possible during sightseeing and city tours, reducing our negative impact on the environment.

In Japan our Local Partners ensure that we tread lightly and utilise public trains and transport as much as possible. We use Local Partners in Mongolia who we work with closely to ensure they mirror our Responsible Travel Policy to Ďprotect our planetí and reduce the consumption of one time plastics. We have worked with the same Local Partner for several years now basing our working relationship on trust and equality and always ensure that on visits to National Parks, we brief our clients on environmental responsibility asking them to use re-usable water bottles during their stay and refrain from using single use carrier bags, which are becoming an serious issue in areas such as the Gobi desert.

People

We have a very clear mandate to support the local community and without these people and experiences our tours wouldnít be the same.

In Japan along with hotel stays we accommodate in traditional Ryokan or Japanese inns and in Mongolia we stay in traditional gers. This not only provides an authentic experience for our clients but ensures we are using local services and keeping tourism local and within the community. The traditional Japanese inns we use are built using local materials to insulate and these are used to great effect to save energy during the winter months.

In addition, we partner with local families in the Gobi Desert, eating local food, experiencing horse riding, archery and experiencing other traditional nomadic ways of life. These are all supported through our long standing local partners ensuring funding is reaching the communities we visit.

We use local guides and city ambassadors who are from the area to see the destination through the eyes of a local and maintain a good working relationship with the community.
