Responsible travel – changing the way we see the world
Responsible travel tours are changing the way we explore the world.
For some, the perception they have of organized groups tours is quite negative. The idea of a group of 40 random people following a guide and storming into different places on a fast pace, starts to dissipate and giving place to a new vision of what tourism can be.
Responsible travel – changing the world, one tour at the time
Small responsible travel and sustainable tourism business with an Eco-friendly approach, offer unique, exciting local and cultural experiences, while empowering local communities and protecting the wildlife. I’m a strong believer that pioneer tour companies, such as Artisan Travel are revolutionizing the tourism industry.
Why is responsible travel so different from conventional tours?
PRESERVATION OF WILDLIFE – Whale and dolphin watching, spotting wild bears, eagles, caribous and moose… Animal observation will take you to incredible destinations such as Sweden, Iceland, Greenland, Norway and Alaska. Wildlife tours will put you face to face with some of the most majestic animals, while you contribute towards their preservation and well being.
UNIQUE EXPERIENCES – Have you ever dreamed of staying at an ice hotel or sleeping in an Igloo? What about taking an exciting Husky safari through some of the most breathtaking northern forests? Drive down the romantic Portuguese coast, take the photography tour in Gozo, or go out and observe the dance of the northern lights. Some of the most life changing experiences are actually away from the crowds and waiting for you!
SMALL GROUPS – One of the negative consequences of mass tourism, is precisely the amount of tourists that storm into a destination. Responsible tourism tours, are based in the idea of creating a small, friendly and intimate experience for like minded people who share the same passions. The dynamics of a small group, where people can get to know each other while sharing precious moments, off the beaten path, will probably make you return for more!
LOCAL GUIDES – No one will ever be able to share the knowledge of a culture more than the locals. When your guides are local experts, you’ll have the possibility to fully understand the traditions and costumes of your chosen destination. By employing local guides only, Artisan travel is supporting the local communities while providing you with the best service.
TAILOR MADE HOLIDAYS – This is the best option for the adventurous nature lovers who know precisely what they want to experience at their own pace. With tailor made tours, you have the freedom to design your dreams within the destinations provided and determine the length and style of your holidays.
Some of the most beautiful and breathtaking spots can only be found away from the crowded, over rated top destinations. When you’re surrounded by the unexplored wilderness and experiencing truly unique and exotic cultures, you’ll never look back. So get ready, grab your camera, pack your bags, because the world is waiting for you!
