Ethical Journeys

Cultural exchange done right

Ethical Journeys is a collection of small group tours that adhere to the highest environmental, fair trade and human rights standards to educate travelers on sustainable and ethical travel and to maximize benefits to host communities. Proceeds from Ethical Journeys support the work of Ethical Traveler.

What can you know – and feel – about a place when you don’t meet the people who live in it? We learn through human contact, and the knowledge that we gain is of infinitely greater value than any number of practical tips. It is through human contact that we open our hearts. Enlightenment and love – there are no more compelling reasons to travel, or write about it.
