Traveling is the best way to understand the world, to see what is beyond every day, and to expand your horizon. When you travel with purpose you intend to explore places and leave a positive impact.
Now it’s your turn to get to know the world from another, more authentic perspective. Together we want to show you how a trip can also lead you to live a freer, more sustainable, and balanced lifestyle by experiencing a journey with purpose.
Tips for a purposeful trip
1. Local culture
Getting involved with the local culture is a great way to get to know the customs and real essence of a country.
Responsible tourism is often associated with the environment but the reality is that the impact we have on local communities is just as important as the impact we have on the environment around us.
2. Local businesses
Try to stay in places run by local people, contract services with small agencies, etc. This does not mean that you always have to give up big companies (because they also employ people from the communities you visit), but we do recommend diversifying so that your resources reach everyone.
Contributing to small local economies has a positive impact on people’s quality of life.
Taking advantage of local markets is a great way to contribute to these economies. Also, preferring to buy handicrafts sold by the artisan villagers themselves rather than by city stores is a great opportunity to learn more about local techniques.

3. Eco tourism
Meaningful travel opens doors to new opportunities, people, and motivations for what we live with more passion and meaning.
Responsible tourism is based on respect for the place we visit. This means that we must act in a civic manner and not behave as if we were in an amusement park. Follow the indications that mark the delimitations of the areas, do not litter, and do not take objects as souvenirs.
Environmental awareness and the impact of our actions are important for the future of the planet.
Responsible tourism is in your hands, in our hands! And it is the only way to move towards sustainable and future tourism.
