    Offsetting carbon emissions, reducing deforestation and providing wildlife habitats.


    With a commitment to sustainability and environmentally-responsible student group travel, we’re delighted to be partnering with Carbon Footprint to offset carbon emissions, reduce deforestation and provide wildlife habitats.

     

    For every trip booked with us, a Maya nut tree will be planted in Peru supporting reforestation, providing benefits to local communities and support forest biodiversity. Learn more here.

     

    To guarantee carbon emission reductions, we’ve pledged to offset an additional tonne of CO2 through the Portel-Para reducing deforestation project in the Brazilian Amazon.  Learn more here.
