Sustainable travel begins with care. With consideration towards all aspects of an experience, be it the local community or the methods of travel. Beyond the trip itself, it’s a matter of taking on best practices in our day-to-day to help us reduce our environmental footprint and contribute to driving those same best practices.
At Pelorus, we believe that the onus rests with brands and organizations to promote sustainable travel and organizational best practice to their clients.
We practice what we preach (without, hopefully, being too preachy). Across our Private Adventures, Yacht Expeditions, and Pelorus Agency, all of our trips have sustainability as a foundational aspect. During our trips, we offer clients opportunities to take advantage of our expertise for their own education and work in lockstep to help them design their own sustainable boundary-pushing experiences.
For us, a trip begins with a goal. It can be anything from immersing yourself in a new culture and cuisine to learning a language. A trip should be about personal transformation rather than just occupying space in an exotic locale and posting a picture on social media. And ideally, it’s an event that moves you to take on a conservationist philosophy towards wildlife and the environment, that seeks to preserve the wonder and awe that you’ve just experienced for the next person, the next generation.
