Snowland Journeys is committed to responsible travel.
In today’s world, faced with a multitude of threats to children and to the environment, our commitment is stronger than ever.
Safeguarding the children and young people is our priority.
All our projects include a training session to learn about cultural awareness, local customs and our reintegration process.
As an organisation we strive to achieve the following principles:
Genuine sustainability in all aspects of our business planning and operations.
Snowland Journeys expeditions and operations are managed in a way where the natural and cultural values of the host region are undiminished in the long term. Where possible, Snowland Journeys engages in partnerships with local environmental groups and/or land managers to actively campaign for conservation or to promote environmental protection and/or rehabilitation.
Genuine Responsibility in Travel.
Snowland Journeys believes that travel should be as rewarding for the host community as it is for you the traveller. We aim to maximise the benefits of tourism for host communities. This includes training and employment of local staff, using local suppliers and assisting in the development of sustainable local businesses.
We actively minimise the negative effects that tourism can have by ensuring that tourism does not divert resources away from local communities or drive up prices on local resources. Snowland Journeys provides opportunities for cultural exchange, where locals and visitors alike can share and learn from each other in mutual respect.
We contribute to the welfare of the host community. This is epitomised in our development of community projects where we organise for travellers to spend time in underprivileged villages, upgrading basic facilities such as health, education and water access. Snowland Journeys strives to educate our travellers about the destination and its local cultures as well as providing guidelines on appropriate behaviour to minimise impact.
