We’re all about making travel as sustainable as possible – and our TRIPS are no exception. Whether that means cutting out internal flights, supporting local businesses, or booking eco-conscious stays. That even applies to the destinations we offer – we support those that future proof through renewable energy or conservation. If you’re looking for a more sustainable holiday this year, start with one of these.

A forested valley in Costa Rica on a cloudy yet sunny day

Pura Vida: a Jungle Safari of Costa Rica

Costa Rica is a beacon of sustainable tourism: more than 90 percent of its energy comes from renewable sources, while the country itself is divided into a patchwork of reserves and natural parks. This nine-day adventure kicks off with a local tour of San Jose, followed by a cup of not-so-average joe in a volcanic coffee plantation. From here it’s downhill, or rather downstream, as you speed through the Balsa River rapids in a dinghy, before sloth-spotting on a moonlight hike in Monteverde. You’ll swing from the jungle down to the beach, stopping at surf town Tamarindo for a boarding lesson, before finishing with a well-earned spa date.
