We believe very strongly in sustainable and responsible tourism and we do everything we can in our destinations to help tourism have a positive impact on the local environment and communities.
However, there is no getting away from the fact that to travel to our destinations our clients need to fly, drive or take the train. Whilst the train probably offers the most environmentally friendly option with the lowest carbon footprint, it is not always the most practical or economic solution. As such, many of our clients choose to fly or drive, notching up their carbon spend.
After studying many different carbon offsetting programmes and schemes, we discovered that it was difficult to find one with a clear and transparent use of the carbon offsetting contribution.
Then we discovered Mossy Earth!
Mossy Earth have a completely transparent tree planting and re-wilding project that travellers can participate in to offset their carbon footprint. They plant native trees in deforested areas or areas damaged by wildfires in different locations around Europe.
They provide you with a GPS coordinate and photo for each tree you purchase so you can locate it on the map or even visit.
Mossy Earth have allocated a part of their forest in Portugal to Undiscovered Mountains to grow and we are offering our clients the opportunity to buy a tree here when they book their holiday with us.
Here is the Undiscovered Mountains forest which is being planted by trees bought by our clients.
One tree costs € 9.99 and would offset the carbon costs of an average European flight for one person.
You will be given the option to buy trees when you book a holiday with us.
