Whether a family member thinks a student comes home a changed person or it takes a few weeks / months or even years for their experiences to filter through, being on an expedition with your peer group, not all of whom are friends to begin with, is a hugely life enhancing experience. Students can’t help but become more independent, more wise to the world, more mature and more resilient.

True adventure leader

Some students will come on an adventure as a seasoned family traveller whilst others will never have been outside of the UK or even spent a night away from their families, but which ever category they fit into, they can’t help but have their eyes opened to other cultures, new experiences, different situations and their limitless personal abilities in the locations that we go to.

Ecotourism

Ecotourism

Promoting Sustainable Travel

There is no denying that travel has a huge impact on our natural environment and becomes evident when the level of visitor use is greater than the environments ability to cope with it. The idea behind ecotourism is to make sure that travel does not have a lasting negative impact on any destination, disrupting the balance of its ecosystems and therefore destroying it for future generations. Ecotourism is defined as "responsible travel to natural areas that conserves the environment, sustains the well-being of the local people, and involves interpretation and education" (TIES, 2015). This is something that True Adventure feel incredibly strongly about. Being a company that frequently provides young people with fantastic opportunities to travel to some of the world’s most biodiverse-rich locations, it is important that ecotourism is taken into consideration in order to make sure that we have as little impact as possible.

I could also continue to expound about our use of technology that is linked to a 24/7 Operations Room, manned by Directors and Staff who are the very people who worked with the teams prior to departure.
