TRAVEL FOR A CHANGE
Before COVID19, it was predicted that by 2020 approximately 1.5 billion people would travel each year. While that is a staggering figure, what alarms us is that many local businesses and communities do not benefit from these almost $8trillion dollars spent in this industry.
Having respect for local culture, caring about sustainability and use of natural resources when you travel doesn't mean you have to travel low-budget or as basic as possible. In fact, making small changes in how - not what - you spend can help strengthen local communities, create more opportunities for those who live there, and help protect the animals and environment, all while celebrating the local culture.
We are proud to offer small group community tourism packages with G Adventures, whose founder Bruce Poon Tip established the Planeterra Foundation in 2003 to minimize tourism's impact. We love their product, the experience they offer travelers, and the difference a trip with them can make in our lives and for those in the communities we visit.
