-In all our destinations, we have our flagship product, the «Sustainable Impact Adventures». They are our eco-experiences where the vast majority of services are sustainable, with eco-responsible accommodation, electric rental cars, and where we include social and environmental impact activities, for the most demanding clients in terms of the footprint they want to leave in the visited destination. Do not hesitate to ask us about these trips!

3. TRAVEL AND EXPLORE RESPONSIBLY
Do not pollute the rivers, or pour soap or any chemical substances into them.
Do not hunt or kill living beings unless you are in a life or death situation. Killing defenseless animals is not a sport. If humanity continues in this way, in 50 years there will be no species left. Therefore, we are solely responsible for this not happening. Can you imagine a world without animals and plants?
Every day 150 species become extinct, because of human activity. We are killing the bees, which are the main pollinator, in the ecosystems that contain flowering plants.
We really believe that human beings can do incredible things and can learn from their mistakes. We hope that little by little, the self-destructive dynamic will change, in which humanity has been involved in the last centuries.
So we encourage you to collaborate with this cause, this does not require money, does not require donating, or doing hard volunteer work. Simply a behavior based on mutual respect, with everything around us. Small changes are the engine that activates the most remarkable achievements of humanity.
From Ultimate Wild Trip, we thank you for any significant changes you can make in this regard. And for those who already enjoy exemplary behavior, 1000 thanks for preserving our ecosystems responsibly.
