The truth is that we’re probably the only company in the world who don’t really want to be different at all. We want every travel company to be the same as us. We want them to embrace our ideology about conscious, sustainable travel. We want them to offer an authentic cultural experience that engages with local communities on a personal human level. We want companies to listen to a new generation of travellers who want to experience a whole other world, but one that really exists, not some fort knox resort disguising the imperfect truth beyond its walls. What we want is for our way of travel to become the new normal, maybe even one day, the status quo.
A band of traveller’s ourselves, we wanted to make our adventures feel more complete, more whole, by giving back to the communities who had hosted us so generously. Those who had the most famous landscapes in their back garden but barely a roof over their head. We vow to try and change that by changing how people decide to travel. We want you, the people who choose to adventure with us to have that cyclical experience of giving back to the places that will give you so much, that ignite and reignite every sense, fear, and emotion within you.
