RESPONSIBLE TRAVEL

At Carabiner Adventures we do more than pay lip service to Responsible Tourism – we have been committed to it since our very beginnings and support and develop community projects in destinations we visit.

To us Responsible Travel coincides with Responsible Business, designing adventures with the local people, culture, and eco-system in mind. We are very aware of the economic, ecological and ethical impact tourism can have on ancient cultures and fragile environments.

We realise that taking clients through these regions can have a detrimental impact if not handled responsibly and as such, on all of our tours we go to great lengths to minimise the negative and accentuate the positive – after all, there are also many good things that the traveller can bring!

A successful Carabiner Adventures trip not only delivers a unique journey for you, but it also benefits the people whose lands we are privileged to visit.

OUR RESPONSIBLE BUSINESS POLICY

We guarantee that when designing our trips, we utilise our own experiences to break down barriers and provide ethical business for those lesser known areas with so much to offer.

We pride ourselves on challenging perceptions and raising awareness through low impact experiences and ethical business – not just through charity work. What can you expect from us? And what do we expect of you while travelling? Read more…

WILDLIFE POLICY

As well as our focus on environmental and cultural tourism, the well-being of all wildlife and its natural habitat is also very important to us. We don’t offer elephant riding on our holidays and we abhor animals being exploited or put to any unnatural uses.

PLASTIC WATER BOTTLES

Here at Carabiner Adventures, we are determined to minimise the negative side-effects tourism can bring to the areas we visit, and the communities we work with. Alongside, our support for a range of wildlife and environmental causes, we have launched a new initiative to promote the use of filtered water bottles among our tour leaders and travellers reduce the use of plastic water bottles.

COMMUNITY-BASED TOURISM

Carabiner Adventures is proud to work with and support the Ladakhi Women’s Travel Company in northern India.

These inspirational community-based tourism initiatives that are helping local people in isolated rural areas earn a living from tourism while preserving their unique cultures.

EAT WITH LOCAL FAMILIES

Where we can, we support communities and family enterprises at a grass root level. One of the most effective and enjoyable ways is through food!

Dining with local families not only allows us to help provide a direct income, it offers our travellers a delicious home cooked, traditional meal and the chance for both parties to learn more about each other’s cultures.

CARBON NEUTRAL

We are among the first India-based travel companies to automatically offset every client’s tour and international flight (if booked with us) with a payment to Cool Effect to help reduce carbon footprint. The type of initiatives our contributions help fund projects including wind power projects, rainforests conservation, biogas implementation etc. across across the world.
