Mother earth is our main guest in all our journeys. We believe that the world needs more local initiatives with the highest social impact and the lowest environmental impact possible. In this way, our journeys aim to turn tourism from a destructive force to a powerful positive one where nature matters, where money stays in each destination and the culture of local communities are celebrated and involved.
Some of the concrete actions we take towards ecology and sustainability:
-Every included meal is plant based and mostly locally grown.
-We hire local guides and make sure they earn what their work, experience and knowledge is well recognized.
-We travel with a water filter and encourage you to bring your own reusable water bottle.
-We donate a percentage of our income to a conservation and reforestation project in the Amazon rainforest.
-We choose to work with a net of ecolodges, homestays and hotels that are actively committed to create less waste.
-We choose to work and recommend other entrepreneurs and local businesses as our suppliers.
We are constantly looking for new and original ways to improve our eco standards for the whole traveling experience. If you ever feel something about our approach can change for better, please don’t hold back on giving us feedback.
Transversal Travel believes that one person cannot do everything, but can do something and that thing will be good if it comes from a place of love.
