Nature First Travel Tips

Putting Nature First on your travels: tips for exploring the planet sustainably

We acknowledge that travel can have a negative impact on nature – through increasing carbon emissions and pollution and exploiting ecosystems. By identifying these areas, we are working hard to avoid and reduce these impacts. You can play a vital role during your adventures in reducing your carbon footprint and putting nature first wherever possible, giving back to nature more than you take. Here are some ways in which you can put nature first on your travels:

Remove

Avoid products and activities that degrade eco-systems

Refusing single use plastic items shows the provider that travellers no longer want items that are damaging to nature. 

Reduce

Reduce activities and consumption of products that negatively impact the environment

Restore

Support biodiversity restoration and nature regeneration

Support Local

Support the generation of economic opportunities for local people

Alongside supporting biodiversity and ecosystem regeneration, we can have a positive impact on our travels by supporting local communities. Any time we choose a locally owned restaurant, hotel, or shop, or choose to visit a local marketplace or similar, not only are we getting a more authentic local experience, but we’re also providing employment opportunities and boosting the local economy. Another way to support and empower some of the communities you may meet across our destinations is through the work of the Exodus Travels Foundation.

P.S. We encourage you to feedback to your guide and through our customer feedback forms about ways in which your trip positively or negatively impacted people, places, and our planet. This will ensure we can deliver on our purpose of improving life through travel and our ambitious goal of becoming ‘nature net positive’.
