    Global Basecamps is the best! The agency is very skilled in quickly getting a feel for your travel style and then putting together an itinerary, accommodations and all, that are a perfect match.

    Global Basecamps was invaluable in setting up our trip in Thailand. My travel specialist made personal recommendations for places to stay that were carefully thought-out to meet our needs. They were extremely diligent about ensuring that connections, rides and ferry schedules matched seamlessly, and made it easy for us to just enjoy our trip without any stresses. We absolutely appreciate every aspect of the work they did on our behalf. Kudos!

    I made last minute plans for a summer trip around the world with my kids, departing in late June. Great help and advice from the sustainable travel experts at Global Basecamps made it possible.

Our commitment to sustainable travel

Global Basecamps believes that a successful business, especially in the travel industry, is dependent on a healthy environment, both globally and locally. We believe that growth and corporate responsibility should work hand in hand and that capitalism and conservation are not mutually exclusive. Through our in-country partnerships we support a wide variety of local initiatives and in addition we annually contribute to small-scale projects to directly benefit community development.

Planting Trees for Every Trip
With the help of our partner, Carbonfund.org, we have planted a tree for every one of our trips from the Inca Trail to the coast of Vietnam--and will continue to do so. As our travelers trek through Machu Picchu or boat through Halong Bay, we are planting trees in Nepal. Reforestation projects are one of the best ways to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide that's in the atmosphere. To date, Carbonfund.org has supported SeedTree’s planting of over 315,000 trees in 21 communities throughout Nepal.

The Viña Del Mar Library and Computer Center
Estero de Platano is a small rural community in coastal Ecuador that suffers, like so much of the world, with very limited educational resources for the local children. While we were in Ecuador in 2009 we found out about the work of a Peace Corps volunteer who was trying to build a library and computer center for the local kids (and hopefully some of the adults) and it was finally completed in April 2010. The library is used on a daily basis to supplement school lessons and teach computer literacy to the local children.

Pack for a Purpose
Pack for a Purpose is a new nonprofit that seeks to improve the lives of children in need around the world, one traveler at a time. It is not a large organization, just a small, core group of individuals with a big idea that can have a huge collective impact. Pack for a Purpose provides information that empowers every traveler to make a difference by bringing along a small and much needed donation of everyday school, recreational or medical supplies to their destination – and all it takes to get involved is to visit the Web site, www.packforapurpose.org, to see how a little bit of effort really can go a long way.

T.I.E.S.
GBC is actively involved with the International Ecotourism Society and supports the creation of an international standard of guidelines set forth to ensure that the goals of sustainable tourism are met. The product choices reflect this commitment and we seek out vendor partners who integrate environmental and socially responsible principles into practice.

International Mountain Explorers Connection
GBC is also a member of IMEC’s Partnership for Responsible Travel Program. The International Mountain Explorers Connection (IMEC) is a U.S. based 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization whose mission is to promote responsible and sustainable connections between travelers and the people of developing mountain regions of the world. As a partner of this program Global Basecamps is supporting their Porters Assistance Project.
