Responsible tourism

  2. Responsible tourism

As part of one of the most important and largest industries on the planet we take our responsibility seriously and ‘go the extra mile’ to ensure our presence in every country in which we operate is entirely positive. 

Central to how we operate is that we care for our crew, care for the local environment and care for the communities in which we operate.

And where we are really different is that we operate our own expeditions to make sure you have an amazing experience. We hand pick and train all our guides and ensure that every aspect of your trip operates to the highest standard. Where we use partners they are of the highest standard, reflect our values, ethics and joy of travel.

Our belief is that this commitment to Responsible Travel is mutually beneficial without compromising the countries and communities we touch or the depth and uniqueness of your adventure.

Key values of our organisation are:

  • Leave nothing behind
  • We’re the visitors, let’s be respectful at all times
  • Deliver a breath taking experience
  • Let’s benefit local communities and environments

We want to visit these wonderful places for a reason – let’s help keep them precious.
