With around one in five British people expressing concern around the impacts of their holiday, it's unsurprising that many of us are seeking out more sustainable trips. The travel industry has a large carbon footprint, but also a real economic importance
for many countries in the developing world, so it's a fine balancing act that many tour operators take very seriously in the fight against climate change.
At Explore, we aim to reduce the carbon footprint for all of our trips by planning out every stage responsibly. We take into consideration the accommodation where Explore travellers stay, the routes and vehicles used to get from one destination to another and the environmental impact of the activities included as part of each trip.
From the moment you book with Explore, we consider it our responsibility to think about how our actions impact the Earth and the countries we visit every step of the way. However, there are many things that individual travellers can do to reduce their personal carbon footprint when planning a trip. If you want to find out how you can reduce your own travel carbon footprint, our guide will give you the top tips for responsible travel.
