We're Ethy certified!

It’s always been our love of the people, nature and environment in Latin America that has inspired us to share it with others. We have always sought to arrange trips that have a low impact on the places we visit, whilst offering longer-term benefits locally, and we work with local partners who share this ethos. While we’re not perfect, we strive to be a responsible business that cares about our international team, our travellers and the planet, so we are continuously working to improve all we do on our sustainability journey.
We believe in being transparent about our progress or where we can do better, and avoid making empty claims. To this end, our sustainable practices are being verified by independent experts: Ethy.  A sustainability accreditation specialist that partners with Feefo, Ethy helps customers find responsible, ethical businesses. They test sustainability claims on an evidence-based system built on the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Each 'ecolabel' trust-mark represents an area where Ethy has reviewed evidence that specific sustainability criteria have been met for that particular theme.
