2. SUSTAINABILITY ON OUR TRIPS

-In our trips, we include bus transportation, shared transfers by minibus and shared transfers by sea or air, when there is no better alternative.

-We make travelers aware of good practices, such as recycling, using reusable bottles, not contaminating, saving water and energy in hotels, staying in eco-lodges, not requesting the daily replacement of sheets and towels in hotels and respecting wildlife and plants of each country.

-We make travelers aware so that they do not promote or participate in their trips, in activities or practices, which include the following: use of animals as tourist entertainment and transport, child exploitation, and commercial sexual exploitation.

-We measure the carbon footprint of all our trips, to offset it in reforestation projects, in rural areas of countries with fewer resources. If our clients decide to offset their footprint voluntarily, we donate the same amount, to local community projects and environmental conservation projects.

-We minimize the number of domestic flights within the country our clients visit.

-We give priority to adventure tours that leave a reduced CO2 footprint, such as hiking, kayaking, rafting, paragliding, canyoning, climbing, etc.

-We choose local proximity tour companies, located near to the daily activities to minimize the transport footprints.

-We work with local and family small-medium size companies, to promote rural and sustainable tourism development in the area.

-We prioritize collaboration with sustainable tourism companies, or interested in good practices so our trips can leave the minimum footprint.

-We connect travelers with local indigenous communities, promoting respect and preservation of their culture and rights while collaborating and supporting community projects.

-We offer to the travelers educational experiences, and we provide them the possibility to support projects in each destination, visiting animal rescue centers, planting trees on their trips to offset their CO2 footprint or participating in sustainable community eco-projects.

-We donate 10% of our annual net turnover to reforestation, protection of endangered species, to preserve the heritage and culture of indigenous groups in each destination, construction of water wells and self-subsistence orchards in areas with fewer resources, humanitarian aid, participation in renewable projects, collaboration in sustainable community projects to promote rural development and assistance in environmental projects.

-We reward travelers who act 100% sustainably on their trips.

3. TRAVEL AND EXPLORE RESPONSIBLY

We openly believe that the only way to preserve this incredible planet, so new generations can continue to enjoy it, is to create awareness starting with ourselves. We believe that it is really important to travel respecting everything that surrounds us. We imagine that many of you have exemplary behavior. This is usually the normal thing among athletes and adventure travelers, who practice outdoor sports. But for those who are starting or for those who are still a little bit lost, from here, we beg you to travel in a responsible and sustainable way. Take care of forests and oceans, please. We do not ask you to collect the garbage that you find at your path, wherever you go, but at least, do not collaborate in accumulating more waste. Do not harm plants and animal species of each place. Sometimes, we do not realize, but those plants that we uproot, those shells, starfish or corals that we take home, or the stress that we produce to the native animals of each place, can alter the natural course of the ecosystems.

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.
