Responsible Travel

As travelers ourselves, we know that traveling responsibly is important, and we work hard to give back to the places and people that have inspired our company from the very start. Their success is our success. This philosophy is built into our everyday operating standards, built into our partnerships and follows us in our independent sustainable projects. This means that each component of your trip has been researched and chosen to support our commitment to giving back and providing you with a great adventure. Adventure Life enforces “Leave No Trace” principles in our choice of accommodations and our waste management, minimizing impact at any sites or communities visited. Our local guides are thoroughly trained on the principles of “Leave No Trace” responsible travel.

There are different ways to travel responsibly. Some choose to participate directly by volunteering your time. This is why we carefully created community service project trips in the highlands of Ecuador and Peru. In some places, it is money that is needed for conservation and travelers choose direct donations. This is the case in the Galapagos Islands where Adventure Life and our travelers have together donated tens of thousands of dollars over the years to help with everything from beach cleanups to policing against shark fining. Our company is a long-standing member of the International Galapagos Tour Operators Association with staff serving on the board of this conservation-focused organization that directly funds vital protection and education projects in the Galapagos.

As a company, we also dedicate money to supporting local grass-roots projects – small, independent programs without a voice or a source of funding outside their often rural locals. Over the years, we’ve provided ongoing support of a woman’s shelter in Cusco, rebuilt irrigation for a village we’ve longed worked in, and stocked science labs, bought eye glasses, and a dozen other little projects. These things aren’t about saving the world, but they are about giving back to the people and places that play host to us and our travelers.

Brian Morgan, CEO and Adventure Lifer!

I wanted friends and family to experience the same excitement and wonder that I enjoyed while living and working in such fascinating places as Ecuador, Peru, and Russia, and friends and family wanted authentic travel experiences. They didn’t, however, want to go at it on their own. So I used my own experiences and lots of help from friends in Ecuador and Peru to create a travel company that offers everyone the chance to discover the culture and places that I love. It’s an honor to be part of a community of such discerning travelers and to be part of planning their most perfect adventures.

“As travelers, Adventure Life is committed to traveling well. We invite you to explore your world with vigor and compassion, respect and wonder, and to fully understand how good it feels to be responsible in your travels and adventures.”
