Responsible Travel

We are passionate about Spain and Portugal as well as responsible travel, so naturally, we want to help maximize the benefits that your trip can bring to both local people in the destination while at the same time reducing negative impacts.

Responsible travel does not mean having to compromise on the quality or enjoyment of your trip in fact we believe it enhances the experience of getting to know the people and culture of Spain and Portugal. Here’s some of the things we’re doing right now, but stay tuned as we update you on our journey.

Animal Welfare

We love animals, we care about them, which is why we have taken it on as one of our main causes.

Bullfighting is often imagined as a tall, smartly dressed, handsome Spaniard, outwitting the raging bull, however, the reality is far less glamorous. This barbaric tradition is nothing short of animal cruelty in its most extreme sense. Watching a bullfight can be an unpleasant and traumatic experience.

As nostalgic as scenic horse carriage rides seem, there are many reasons to avoid them if you don’t wish to contribute to their daily suffering.

Reduce Negative Impacts

It all starts with small changes.

We provide each traveler with very easy list of actions they can take before and during their trip in order to tread lighter while in Portugal or Spain.

Moving Forward

Travel can create enriching personal experiences as well as greater cultural understanding and connection.

The journey towards becoming a purpose-driven company has no end, we continue to seek ways to make our trips a force for improvement in the lives that are touched by our trips. One of our aspirations is that we would like to move towards plastic-free trips. We would like to be able to provide our travelers as well as guides and drivers with Water to Go bottles which would eliminate the need for single-use plastic bottles.
