What our travelers have to say
What we hear most about our style of travel is "Why haven't I done this before?"
Responsible travel is rooted in respect, socially & ecologically . Since 1972 we've helped shape the meaning of traveling responsibly by introducing small groups of travellers to local people, wildlife and culture while sustaining the delicate balance that enables these communities and ecosystems to thrive.

This past weekend, across many parts of the Northeast and New England, winter paid a quick, memorable visit. As I type, the temperature has returned to seasonal but schools in several states remain closed and in many places Halloween has been postponed due to extensive power outages. It was surreal to be walking through slush here in New York in late October, the wind whipping snow into my eyes. Normally, I would have spent the day at home, snug and dry. Friends visiting from out of town got me out, however. Yes, we had fun. But not even the comforting warmth of lots of wine and the scrumptious decadence of the seasonal truffle pizza special at Otto could make me ignore the awful weather. If this is any indication of what this winter will be like when it arrives for real, I’m not looking forward to it.
Obviously, for those of you that love to ski, snowboard, snowshoe and spend days in bracingly cold climes, winter is a great time of year. It’s hard to argue the beauty of freshly fallen snow blanketing a landscape, whether urban or rural. But if you aren’t keen on cold-weather activities, winter gets old quickly.
I’m not a huge winter person so the wacky weekend weather really threw me off, and started me thinking about escape strategies should 2012 start with feet of snow and limb-numbing temperatures. The most obvious answer is to head south, so far south that you land in summer. Why trudge through snow when I could be working on my tan and kicking through sand in South Africa, Australia or Brazil?
