Eco friendly holidays

Stunning scenery, fascinating monuments, parks and wildlife. Visit some of the most beautiful places in the world, offering an unforgettable experience, while also preserving nature and benefiting local communities. Experience eco friendly holidays, filled with fun and enjoyment!

Although air travel is currently a small contributor to overall carbon emissions, it is one of the fastest growing sources of such emissions. In fact, one long haul flight can produce more carbon emissions per person that a full year of car driving! It’s important, therefore, to fly less than we do currently if we are to minimise our individual carbon footprints. There are many alternatives to flying and good sites such as Man in Seat 61 provide a range of alternative options for eco friendly holidays.

Did you know? According to One Poll the average person will go on at least three holidays every year, for a minimum of one week each time. And on every holiday they will spend over £2,000 on travel, accommodation, drinks, food and entertainment.

Thanks to the service of Volunteer Latin America I found the perfect volunteer/internship program in Peru. With the service of VLA it was very easy to find the perfect match. They create a personal guide for you with which you get a lot of information about many projects that fit your desires. So if you want to participate in more than one volunteer project, this is very helpful. The team was great and I had an amazing time there and also gained some new friends. It was one of the best things I did in my life so far, and I will continue to choose VLA for my upcoming experiences in Latin America.
