Responsible Travel with Alpenventures UNGUIDED
We love our planet and the people in it, so it's important to us that our tours have a positive impact on both.
Human-powered adventure travel is already low-impact by design. At Alpenventures UNGUIDED, we have several initiatives to make your travel even more responsible.
We offset 1 metric ton of carbon for each customer.
For each customer, we contribute 1 carbon credit (1 metric ton) toward distributing more efficient cookstoves in Rwanda, planting more trees or funding renewable energy products around the globe.
Responsible Travel Score
We use our Responsible Travel Scorecard to assess each of our tours and the responsible nature of the accommodation, transportation, and the impact on the local communities.
Voluntary Responsible Travel Pledge
We ask our customers to commit to adhering to standards during their tours that minimize impact on both the natural environment and the local communities.
