Becoming more environmentally conscious, lowering our carbon footprint and living more sustainably isn’t just for our day-to-day lives, it also extends to travel. With companies like Country Walkers offering ways to do some good while traveling, joining a tour is a great tourism opportunity, as well as a thoughtful way to give back.

 

Country Walkers is no novice to this concept. The walking adventure provider has been on the side of responsible tourism for decades.

 

“At Country Walkers, we are committed to a healthier planet and to giving back to the destinations we explore,” said Timo Shaw, president, Country Walkers. “Sustainability is one of our core values, from staying in locally owned and operated hotels whenever possible and seeking out environmentally and socially responsible accommodations, to our ardent support of the Slow Food movement in order to preserve culinary traditions and support biodiversity. As a result, those who travel with us contribute to a more sustainable world as well.”

 

Country Walkers offers an opportunity for travelers to contribute to a more sustainable world through conserving wildlife, protecting the environment, preserving indigenous cultures and supporting local economies.

They also created The Travelers Fund, which makes a donation on behalf of every traveler who books a specific tour. Here’s a sample, with many more on the company’s website:

Donations support equipment and training.
