Responsible & Sustainable Tourism
We at South America Journeys believe strongly in responsible and sustainable travel to areas that help improve the wellbeing of indigenous people and conserve the natural environment.
We try and give back to the places and people that have inspired our company from the very start. Their success is our success. There are things we do as part of our everyday operating standards, such as the use of local guides, transportation and family-run hotels. South America Journeys also supports non-profits and other organizations that encourage cultural and ecological awareness. This might mean incorporating a home stay into the tour, or visiting an Amazon lodge owned and operated by an indigenous community. Our itineraries are designed to visit locations where sustainable travel is not only practiced, but has proven effective.
South America Journeys ensures that each itinerary has a positive impact on the local culture, environment and economy. We do this by
-using efficient local transportation which also provides interaction with locals
