We put together 10 important guidelines for being a responsible experiential travel and making attentive choices in every aspect of your own adventure.
Responsible travel can be achieved by being responsible and making the correct choices. Learning to travel mindful and more responsibly will reduce our direct impact on the environment and ecological diversities. We truly believe that, as travel specialists, we have an increased responsibility to communicate to our consumers how to implement responsible practices.
Our vacations, adventures and expeditions are hand-crafted by us taking in consideration good practices and giving great opportunities to learn, develop and thrust frontiers of responsible travel experiences.
In Jasper Sigon’s own words when it comes to his adventures, “For me personal, my journey starts with the goal of integrate myself into new cultures and traditions or learning a new skill set.”
It should not be crossing a checklist, but instead focus on the experience, strive to educate yourself and become well informed and create a responsibility for wildlife, ecological conservations and cultures of our beautiful planet and at the end pass it to the others - that’s the ultimate goal.
Therefore, we have put together the following guidelines to see how we create a positive impact on responsible travel as new or experienced adventures.
Research travel organizations that pursue responsible travel as a core value
We try to implement responsible practices to our journeys and adventures, considering the emissions caused by flights, vehicles, marine voyages and accommodation stays. We try to reduce and optimize at the source, calculating our footprint and supporting habitat conservation and restoration projects around the world.
Plan Responsible Journeys
Avoid mass tourism destinations that are highly frequently visited. This is the first purposeful decision to make in your journeys towards a responsible travel. We always research destinations that most of the times are “below the radar”, and maybe even closure to home than you can possibly think, enabling us to travel to remote parts of the planet with a reduced impact on ecological diversities.
Extend your travelling
Extending your journey provides the opportunity to involve yourself in a destination’s culture and traditions. This creates a connection with the place you are visiting, rather spending your time in short periods in multiple destinations. Create a feeling that you belong somewhere just as home.
