Leave only footprints.

Experience a one of a kind travel opportunity with our Sustainable Adventures.

Carbon Neutral

Sustainable Adventures are designed with sustainability at their core. All accommodations practice sustainable standards, they don't just have "eco" in the name. All carbon emissions, by flights, ground transport, and food is offset by reforestation efforts on the trip. The mantra of these excursions is "Reduce, Recycle, and Reuse".


This is traveling with a purpose.   The first half of the trip is dedicated to reforestation and community volunteering. Our team will guide each group through several days of field work and community based volunteering. We need helping hands to accomplish all of our goals, every group is important to our work.

Cultural Experience

Ecuador has a multitude of amazing cultures in one tiny little country. First, these trips provide an opportunity to  plug right into the Cosangan culture, interacting with young people in games and work days, and dining with community members.  Then, there is time to explore another amazing part of this country.

One tree planted in the humid tropics will absorb 1 ton of CO² over its lifetime (source Carbonify.com). Approximately 35 planted trees per person on the trip will more than suffice to offset CO² emissions.
