We are a travel company that create extraordinary experiences and we exist to help people find better ways of discovering the world.
Fuelled by our passion for transformative travel, our adventures put you at the heart of cultures, communities and habitats around the world. Whether you want to go solo and seek out polar bears in Alaska, head off with your other half to explore the rock-hewn churches of Lalibela, or take your kids across the Greek Islands on a treasure hunt, we’re here to make it happen. Our knowledge, experience and personal connections – from pro-skiers to marine biologists via street artists and expert craftsmen – mean we can offer meaningful experiences and interactions that you won’t find elsewhere.
Once we understand what moves and motivates you, we’re ready to design your adventure. With a background in exploration coupled with a 21st-century outlook, we’ll not only get you to the world’s most incredible destinations – we’ll also ensure you uncover their essence. Whether it’s a family holiday or a year-long sabbatical, we create meaningful, immersive journeys that you might not have believed possible. Once we’ve mapped it out, it’s our job to ensure your adventure runs smoothly. We’ll deal with the logistics, take a transparent approach to costs, and be with you from start to journey’s end.
We’re strong believers in travel as a force for good. That’s why we founded the Conscious Travel Foundation and, as the UK’s only Luxury Adventure Travel Company to hold a B Corp certification, we have legally committed to take into account the interests of our staff, the community and the environment as well as our shareholders.
As part of this commitment, we accurately measure the carbon footprint of every trip, give advice on how you can limit it, and offset where that’s not possible by investing in carefully chosen projects around the world. We only work with suppliers who can demonstrate their support for their local economies, and give back to relevant social and environmental causes.
We’re part of a movement for change.
In 2018 we made the decision to become a carbon neutral business. All travel and business emissions are measured, reduced where possible and offset. When you travel with us you will see that we measure the carbon footprint of every element of your trip from the moment you leave home to the moment you return. We will discuss with you options to lower your footprint before we invest in Gold Standard offset schemes to help offset those emissions that we can’t avoid. In fact – just to make sure we are covering every base we actually offset double.
We are proud to be a carbon neutral business but know there is still a long way to go if we are going to play an active role in the fight against climate change. That’s why we joined the ‘Tourism Declares a Climate Emergency Movement’. We hope to help people travel the world responsibly and sustainably – to be part of the solution, with immediate action. You can find more information about what it means to be part of this movement and read our Climate Emergency Action Plan.
Finally; we audit all our suppliers and operators and only work with those who can demonstrate they share our ethos and are working for the good of the planet, not just their shareholders. This is a laborious task but is vital in driving change within the industry.
In 2020 we co-founded the Conscious Travel Foundation – a social enterprise established to unite and educate owner-operated travel businesses, raising funds for grass-roots charity projects around the world.
The goal of The Conscious Travel Foundation is to make travel matter. We want to help people explore the world with purpose and reason, forming meaningful connections with the places they visit. Our aim is to promote and encourage the positive impact of the travel industry on the environment, protecting and conserving the planet for generations to come.
We recognise the immense privilege that comes with exploring the world and want to do everything we can to ensure our business benefits both people and the planet. We are the UKs first B Corp certified luxury travel company, a global movement harnessing the power of business to use it as a positive force. To us, good business is about so much more than our bottom line, it’s about recognising the impact of our decisions on our team, customers, suppliers, community and the environment.
