For some, 'Green Travel' simply means spending time in nature. However, to us a true green travel experience means much more than that - it's about taking a trip that actively supports efforts to conserve wild places and improve the lives of people in local communities. It's about having a positive impact on the people and places we visit.
Unfortunately, lots of travel companies these days claim to offer green travel or ecotourism experiences without actually doing much to live those values. With so many false claims out there, it can be really challenging to find a genuine ecotourism experience. So how do you do it without spending dozens of hours in tedious research?
At Lokal, we hope to be part of the solution! We carefully choose every experience on our site and only offer trips that are managed by community cooperatives, family businesses and local operators that are committed to truly sustainable travel.
