Why this website?

Through this platform, you can see which local projects we (financially) support and what we do to offset the CO2 emissions of our trips. In addition, the blog section of the site is full of articles, the latest developments, results and recommendations. For example, find out about what you can do to travel greener. You can also find details of prizes we have won and certificates achieved. An environmental program has been prepared with all sorts of practical measures and clear agreements with our local agents.

We all know that travelling and especially flying is not very good for the world. When we do travel, we must take into account the environment, people, nature and culture so that travel remains possible in the future. Take an active role in this! Support our projects and send your comments to us if you have encountered an animal-unfriendly excursion during a trip. This site will inspire you to get more out of your travels.
