Sustainable Travel and Partnerships

The age of mass tourism is well and truly over. On every single one of our tours we eat local, sleep local and immerse ourselves in local customs. We only support small business’ and providers so that every penny stays in that country.

We are acutely aware that in order to become fully sustainable, we must do more.

That is why we are building partnerships with sustainable climate positive organizations and worthy NGOs in some of our destination countries and beyond.

Women For Women International

Since 1993, Women for Women International (WfWI) has been working with marginalised women in conflict-affected countries. They were founded on the belief that stronger women build stronger nations and our vision is for a world in which the most marginalised women affected by conflict lead lives of dignity and reach their full potential in their families and communities. They aim to support women to move from poverty and isolation to self-sufficiency and empowerment with support, resources and knowledge.

“We believe that every woman, regardless of her economic, ethnic, religious, or other circumstance, has the right to determine the course of her life and reach her full potential”.

Rocky Road Travel have committed to donating 3% of our entire net sales to Women for Women International.

Ecologi & The Eden Projects

We have teamed up with the good people at Ecologi to make our workforce climate positive. Ecologi are funding incredible climate projects around the world – from forest protection & regeneration in Papua New Guinea to repairing water boreholes in Eritrea. We are delighted to put our weight behind these projects in the fight against climate change.

We also partner with The Eden Projects who reduce extreme poverty and restore healthy forests by employing local villagers to plant millions of trees every year. Eden has planted more than 485 million trees around the world in Ethiopia, Madagascar, Nepal, Haiti, Indonesia, Mozambique, Kenya, and Central America.

We are aiming to offset the carbon emissions from each of our group tours by funding these projects and planting thousands of trees. Check out our progress here.


What does climate positive mean?

Our staff are climate positive. This means that we are offsetting our entire carbon footprint, including emissions in our home & personal lives, travel, food, hobbies and more.

The average carbon footprint is around 10 tonnes of CO2 per year. We add a good amount of margin to be safe so we commit to offsetting 14 tonnes of CO2 for every person.

We do this by funding the worlds best climate crisis solutions while planting hundreds of trees.
