WHY GO GREEN?

Global warming and climate change are taking its toll on the planet, wrecking havoc and destruction to our nature attractions, rural sites and even big cities! We have to do our part in leaving less impact to the environment and places we visit. The message is Responsible Travel: let us protect the environment, care about host communities and respect their culture as we explore, experience and enjoy.
