TOURISM ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION POLICIES

Many times we hear that the tourism industry is a clean and unpolluted industry, and that is not quite real. The use of land, air and water transport for the movement of recreational leisure travellers alone has a great impact on the environment and air quality worldwide. Hence, all tourism-related businesses are increasingly aware of our role in preserving the environment and the flora and fauna of the places we visit.
Our guides are friendly with the environment conservation.
Development and operation of tourist services:
 
In our trips:

Aware of the ecological impact that motorized tourism generates, we only use authorized access while driving.
Oils, tires and other automotive equipment and materials are returned to the cities of origin for proper disposal.
In our expeditions into the wilderness, we care about leaving the place where we have camped as found or even cleaner.
Our tours are designed to minimize the disruption to local flora and fauna while walking off-road, either on desert (beaches, hills, dunes and river beds), sierra (canyons, snow peak foots, inter-Andean valleys and river crossings) and forests (jungle, river crossings, and swamps).
We follow the recommendations given by the authorities of the national parks or natural areas protected by the state, and report our presence to accelerate responses to emergencies.
We properly dispose the organic (buried or fed to farm animals) and non-organic waste in all our journeys off the road at authorized sites.
In the camps, we use gas instead of wood, in order not to use local timber and prevent over-exploitation.
All our crossing and travel vehicles comply with local regulations for emissions control, and are periodically reviewed to perform as efficiently as possible.
We encourage our passengers and staff to use of rechargeable batteries for all electrical appliances to avoid the disposal of alkaline batteries.
We also encourage our passengers and our staff to prefer reusable bottles to disposable plastic bottles for liquids.
Waste liquid resulting from trips or camps are disposed away from sources of fresh, clean water.
In the camp, we try to reduce the generation of noise to avoid disturbing the local fauna.
We do not promote the purchase of protected wildlife or endangered, or derivatives, in accordance with local regulations.
We try, where possible, to use local quality products to boost the local economy and avoid unnecessary transport of material, as well as hiring local services.
 
In office:

Establish relationships with formal companies that are concerned about environmental conservation.
Internal stationery and documents recycling (reuse of paper, printing on both sides and donation of used paper).
We try to reduce paper prints maximizing the use of electronic means for communication whenever possible.
We calculate our run of brochures carefully to avoid printing more than necessary. Outdated advertising is recycled properly.
Using recyclable or reusable printer ink.
All electrical appliances such as computers, displays, printers, etc. are turned off at night to avoid unnecessary energy consumption.
Control the use of tap water in washrooms, toilets and showers to prevent unnecessary use.
